Soundscape Festival and Discussion in Rotterdam

In partnership with the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague and with the support of the French Institute of the Netherlands, the Alliance Française Rotterdam announces the arrival of the Soundscape festival!

April 2022 will be dedicated to the discovery of the notion of “soundscape”, through several cultural events. By the way, do you know what it is? Establishing a relationship between sound and environment, this concept can be about listening to a place as well as creating music. Find out more during the festival!

The programme:

  • A cycle of 3 workshops on soundscape : Saturday 2, 9 and 16 April from 10am to 12pm
  • discussion on soundscape with professional artists: Thursday 14 April at 6.30 pm
  • An acoustic walking concert in the city of Rotterdam: Saturday 23 April, at 2:30pm

The discussion on soundscape takes place on Thursday 14 April 2022. By questioning the career and work of the invited artists, the aim is to explore different visions around this approach to sound. What are the creative, social and ecological relationships that artists develop by listening to and recording the world around us? Moderated by Hugo Lioret (one-year Sonology course), this discussion will welcome the artists BJ Nilsen, Justin Bennett (Sonology teacher) and Leonie Roessler (one-year Sonology course alumna). It will take place at the Alliance Française Rotterdam and will be broadcast live online. This discussion will be held in English.
