Save the Logos Foundation!

LOGOS FOUNDATION IS IN DANGER!
A commission has advised the Flemish Government to stop all funding for the Logos Foundation, an artist run centre for experimental music and sound art based in Ghent, Belgium.

LOGOS FOUNDATION URGENTLY NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!

Please sign this petition and urge the Flemish Government to keep funding the Logos Foundation.

Logos has been promoting experimental music and sound art since 1968. Cutting edge new instruments, installations and interfaces are being developed in the Logos workshop. The in-house robot orchestra is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the world.
Logos houses a treasure of know-how in the field of robotics, expression control and new sound generators. This knowledge has been implemented in creations by artists such as Kristof Lauwers, Laura Maes, Moniek Darge and Godfried-Willem Raes and international artists such as Troy Rogers, Warren Burt, Clarence Barlow and Steven Kemper.
Logos also provides support to other artists and offers local and international artists space to work and to perform. Besides, Logos creates made-to-measure installations, instruments and interfaces. Recent examples are the PVC-installation for Musica and an automated snare drum for Aphex Twin.
