14:00 – ‘Have a Dream dans la folie’, Participative and interactive performance by the collective Ici-Même (F),
taking place simultaneously in the Marolles and in Marseille with Radio Grenouille.


Have a dream dans la folie (extrait 5’53”) [download]
A live cinematic experience by radio control from the Marolles in Brussels and from Belsunce in Marseille. After a stay in both areas, we have written a radiophonic piece.
To be listened to on the same day, at exactly the same time, in the streets of Marseille and Brussels… where will we be in the end? Whether you are listeners in Marseille or Brussels, we invite you to experience a unique event: Become an actor of radio-controlled cinema by joining us with your radio, armed with headphones (a loan is also possible on the spot). If you cannot come, make yourselves comfortable in your kitchen, open the window and you shall hear the soundtrack of the film!

15:00 – ‘Une chaîne sonore bruxelloise / I am sitting under an antenna’, performance initiated by Annemie Maes d’OKNO and Olivier Meunier of Réseau Citoyen (B),
aired in real-time, with the help of the antennae of the Réseau Citoyen (citizen network), in five places where the audience is invited: OKNO (30/34 quai aux Charbonnages, 1080 Molenbeek), L’écurie (RTT, 194 rue de Molenbeek, 1020 Laeken), La Maison de la Création (former station of Laeken, rue du Champ de l’Eglise, 1020 Laeken), Ministry of the Housing Crisis (123 rue Royale, 1000 Bruxelles) and finally at the Brigittines.


Sitting under an Antenna (48’47”) [download]
At each stage of the course, sounds are added to the chain and little by little they will complete what by addition becomes a Brussels soundscape. In each place, the artist(s) will contaminate, by their own harvest of sound, the material which is sent to them.

16:00 – Pieces chosen by Zoe Irvine and Mark Vernon (GB) presented with Catherine Vertige


From Glasgow With Sound (56’35”) [download]
These two Scottish sound artists approach the medium of radio as much as a means of broadcasting, as they treat it like a medium. Working from radio archives and field-recordings, Mark Vernon revisits the docu-fiction genre. He will speak of the portrait of the Marolles he created for Komplot in 2004. Zoe Irvine will present ‘Illiers-Combray’, a piece in French and English, recorded in Proust’s idyllic childhood village and ‘Travels Together’, a portrait of the Slovenian author Alma Karlin.

17:00 – ‘Les miniatures confidentielles’, performance in front of the Brigittines by Bruno Abt, Raphaël Vens and Damien Magnette (B)

The public is invited to join the artists around the Brigittines in order to listen to an improvisation transforming the urban furniture into an instrument of noise and a sounding board, for an experience at the limits of the possible.

‘Mme Madi’, performance by Caroline Bouissou (F)
carolinebouissou.jpg
Mme Madi, extra-lucid, touch your unconscious, sublimate the hyper-interrogation:
unknown ilness, luck in games, protection against ennemies, business, unsympathetic magic, success, sexual impotence, make shrink or weight, back aches, projects for the future, help solitary persons to find lover, exams, wedding, frigidity, moral or physical complexes, hair fall, …

18:00 РPerformance by David N̩aud (F)

Dispositif à jouer (12’54”) [download]
The rudimentary laboratory device by David Néaud is based on the looping and layering of sounds emanating from clashing objects such as aluminium foil, dust, magnetic particles, a ventilator, a spring, a motor, toys, a transistor, glass recipients… The vibrations of sound are amplified and organised rhythmically according to the meticulous or sudden gestures of this alchemical sound artist.

18:30 – ‘Retour à l’expéditeur’ (return to sender), performance by Vincent Matyn and Patrick Thinsy


Retour à l’expéditeur (30’52”) [download]
Using as its basis the live mixing of sound poetry of Vincent Matyn and the electronic improvisation of Patrick Thinsy, the idea is to pursue research, in the spirit of the radio programme ‘Retour à l’expéditeur’ by Vincent Matyn on Panik, composed from sound archives and music. Patrick Thinsy works on the spontaneous generation of sound in an economy of means with microphones, record decks, and a mixing panel linked in a closed circuit. Together, they propose a narrative which subverts merchandising propaganda in an electro acoustic device.
