The SEM organisation (Studio voor Experimentele Muziek van Antwerpen),
founded in 1973 by Joris de Laet, has been active for 30 years this year.
Today the activities cristalize into three main and regular presentations in the field of electroacoustic music.
1. CONCERT, every first tuesday of the month.
Presentation of electroacoustic music by Joris de Laet, spatialized in the
octophonic composition studio of Antwerp conservatory. (same building
as DeSingel, Desguinlei 25, Antwerpen).
The concerts start at 19.45 h.
It also doubles as a forum for the members of the Belgian Federation of Electroacoustic Music (BeFEM/Fébeme), and it offers also an exclusive occasion to meet the music production of international composition centres.
2. WORKSHOP, every third tuesday of the month. Meant to be a direct forum for composers and an interested audience in the new techniques in the field of electroacoustic music. A mix of a philosophical/technical help desk for newcomers, advanced experiments, discussion, announcements of international concours and festivals, and invitiations to participate. An update for all of us.
