Open Call: Showcase Emerging Sound 2023

As in previous years, STUK Leuven, Q-O2 Brussels and C-TAKT are organising ‘Showcase Emerging Sound’ where a selection of emerging sound artists can show their work to the public. Are you a sound artist, or do you create work with a focus on sound? You can apply for our open call until 14 October.

Every year STUK, Q-O2, Musica & C-TAKT present a sample of promising sound artists in Belgium. The showcase displays the diversity of the Belgian sound art landscape and gives the next generation of sound artists a boost. We are looking for recent, realized work in which sound plays a central role. The genre does not matter: it can be a performance, an installation, soundwalk, radio piece, intervention or any other innovative format.

The four selected works will be presented at STUK with an exhibition from 12 to 17 May 2023, and a series of performances on 17 May 2023. These will be accompanied by a feedback session at Q-O2 where all participants will receive constructive input and advice from professionals and artists from previous editions. There is also the opportunity for all artists to prepare their work in a Klankenbos residency at Musica Impulse Centre (Pelt).
