Music with conches, a robot orchestra and two spinning dancers: STUK presents a family spectacle with three small performances for children and adults alike. The quartet Spiral Consort brings playful compositions with real natural shells, inspired by jazz, brassband, classical and baroque music. Dance company tout petit takes you on a virtuoso game of turning patterns, propelled by a pulsating soundscape. The one and only Logos Robotorkest rounds off the afternoon with short compositions for automatic musical instruments.

‘A piece for an environment’, is a performance that incorporates the environmental sounds of the place where it is performed. Six microphones are spread over the place and pick up the sounds of traffic, passers-by, nature or industrial activities. Those sounds are electronically processed (in Pure Data), and the processed sounds are distributed over six speakers placed around the audience. The musicians move around in the space while playing, and also their sounds are processed in different ways, dependent on the place where they are playing.
