LOOP Festival

Festival LOOP 13
Festival LOOP 13

Initiated in 2008, the LOOP Festival takes place every year around the last week end of November.  Its curating priority is to illustrate the diversity of musical aesthetics present here and abroad, « Loop » referring naturally to the important place of electronics (both acousmatic and live), but also to the will to highlight pieces of our composers existing repertoire.  

Since its start, all major ensembles of the Wallonia-Brussels Community have collaborated to the Festival : the Danel and Tana quartets, Musiques Nouvelles, Ensemble ON, Ensemble 21, Ensemble Sturm und Klang, Ensemble Fractales, Aton’ & Armide, Arsys Sax Quartet, and soloists such as Stéphane Ginsburgh, Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven, Laurence Mekhitarian, Nao Momitani…

Also, thanks to international partnerships, the Festival had the opportunity to invite ensembles such as Defunensemble (FI) and Kwarludium + (PL), and to organize exchange programs (ex. with Quebec composer André Hamel and Montréal Nouvelles Musiques Festival).
