Guus Beumer, director of NAiM/Bureau Europa and Paul Devens, sound artist, are pleased to invite you to the symposium entitled An inquiry into the spatial, the sonic and the public in NAiM/Bureau Europa on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 October.



Symposium: An inquiry into the spatial, the sonic and the public

On Friday 29 and Saturday 30 October, the Panels installation by Paul Devens, which is on display at NAiM/Bureau Europa until 16 January 2011, will create exceptional conditions for a symposium and a series of performances on space and sound. At Devens’s request, a number of artists, theorists and architects will give lectures and performances at the heart of the installation. The symposium will cover topics such as the relationship between sound, image and architectonic space, which was initiated with the Philips Pavilion for the World Expo in 1958. For the realization of this Pavilion, the architect Le Corbusier collaborated with the architect/composer Iannis Xenakis and the composer Edgar Varése, who wrote the notorious Poème Électronique especially for this occasion.



Intro in situ, a workplace and production house for present-day music in Maastricht is a partner of this project.



Presentation: Armeno Alberts

The symposium is presented by Armeno Alberts, sound artist, programme- maker, and director of the CEM studio for electronic music. Alberts worked with the radio programme Cafe Sonore for the VPRO (national broadcasting station), which was the most important programme on sound art in the Netherlands. Alberts also takes on cross-border projects, such as the project ‘Arts Birthday’ in which ten countries are directly linked via internet and satellite and pass on live concerts.

Lecture by Karin Bijsterveld (NL)

The research performed by the historian Bijsterveld is directed toward the – historical – problems associated with noise, the link between technological developments and music, and historical sound. Bijsterveld is the author of numerous publications and is a professor of the Technology and Social Sciences Department at the University of Maastricht.



Lecture by Sachs (IL/DE)

Sachs is a sound artist, curator and musicologist. He is active in the world of the establishment, in the symphony orchestra of Jerusalem, and in the underground. By mixing consoles where the inputs are connected to the outputs, he is able to produce unsettling loud sounds that have little in common with normal symphonic structures. His energetic live compositions can be referred to as ‘noise music’. He was the curator of present-day electronic music and sound art of Levontin 7 (Tel Aviv) and the ctrl_alt_del festival (Istanbul), among others.

Lecture by Esther Venrooy (NL)

Venrooy is an artist par excellence who is not satisfied with the musical scope offered by classical music.
