The electro-acoustic concert, features Annette Vande Gorne's hour-long electro-acoustic Complete Haikus (New Year's Day, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter) 2016-2020 (57') live-mixed by the composer in the CNMAT Main Room. Seating is limited, and first-come, first-serve.  The program includes the electro-acoustic work by MJ Wyckman Fin de Crise.  

A true pioneer in the area of electro-acoustic composition, Annette Vande Gorne (b. 1946) studied music at the Royal Conservatories of Mons and Brussels and completed her training in musicology at the University of Brussels and in electroacoustic composition at the Paris Conservatory with Guy Reibel and Pierre Schaeffer.  Her models for an abstract, expressive language are nature and the physical world. Her music tackles different energy and kinaesthetic archetypes. Her research deals with the relationship to the word, in both sound and meaning, yet also on the notation of space. She has composed acousmatic music for the stage (Musiques pour Henri IV, 1980; Folie de Vincent, 1983; Action/Passion, 1987), for the radio (Bruxellesbivoque, 1997; Les écritures du son sur support, 2004), and for the concert: Tao, suite en 5 éléments, 1983-1991; Ce qu’a vu le vent d’Est, 2003; Figures d’espace, 2004; Yawar Fiesta, acousmatic opera, 2006–12; Haiku, Printemps, and Hiver, 2016–17.

In Belgium, she founded and directed Musiques & Recherches, the studio Métamorphoses d’Orphée, and the acousmatic festival L’Espace du son, thanks to the formation of an acousmonium of 80 loudspeakers. She is also the editor of Lien, a periodical on musical æsthetics.
