SoundMine 2022

SoundMine is an international composition course with intensive coaching by top-level coaches who are composers themselves. Young people and adults with a passion for composing and creating will be coached intensively for five days.

The course is aimed at young professionals, from Belgium and abroad. They will be selected on the basis of their motivation, scores, sound recordings and development potential.

Established names Wim Henderickx and Diederik Glorieux will lead this composition course. Jorrit Tamminga and Gilles Doneux will immerse the composers in the world of electronic music.

This year we will pay special attention to composing for orchestra and composing for instrument and live electronics.

Several young composers will get the chance to experience rehearsals and performances of their own work thanks to a collaboration with the youth orchestra for strings JOWest with Dirk Lievens as conductor, and to have their works performed by a full symphonic orchestra on Tuesday 14 March 2023, thanks to the partnership with the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra.

In addition, composers writing for the electronic/acoustic repertoire will receive the chance to participate in a project from HERMESensemble and Centre Henri Pousseur.

SoundMine 2022 is organised by Musica Impulse Centre in partnership with Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, JOWest, HERMESensemble and Centre Henri Pousseur.
