Annette Vande Gorne
Nationality: Belgium
Biography: Annette Vande Gorne studied classical music at the Royal Conservatory of Mons and Brussels, and with Jean Absil (composition). She also studied electroacoustic composition with Guy Reibel and Pierre Schaeffer at the Paris National Conservatory. She is the artistic director of Brussels’ annual international acousmatic festival L’espace du son, of the electroacoustic music festival 3 visages de la musique électroacoustique, and of the international competitions Espace du son (spatialization) and Métamorphoses (acousmatic composition). She has taught electroacoustic composition at the conservatories in Liège and Brussels, and currently teaches at Mons, where she created an electroacoustic department in 2002.

Her music focuses on the sounding energies of nature; she uses natural sounds and transforms them in studio to create an abstract, expressive, and non-anecdotal musical language. The relationship between text and music is another subject she often explores. She is presently working on an acousmatic opera yawar fiesta with poet Werner Lambersy.

Program Notes: Is it because it is the signature, the audible trace by which each living being identifies itself and by which it marks the other and detects his intentions ? The voice remains the first emotional and musical vehicle. It is the ancestral medium of all direct communication.

"Vox Alia"is a suite of short studies based on the voice which via electroacoustic treatment conserves the traces of the melodic, rhythmic and timbral qualities of this marvelous medium so immediately at the service of a particular character or feeling.

Innocentemente rediscovers immediate temporality with its contrasting, elusive nature and its diffuse, internal sense of space, qualities all of which are germane to childhood.
