The electro//acoustic day will bring together both classical instrumental, vocal repertoire and cutting-edge electronic music inviting the audience to explore diverse performances and listening modalities. It will encourage non-traditional modes of listening and create new relationships with music. Sonic and physical space, spatialization and embodiment of sound will be at the centre of all the concerts and the installation creating an immersive environment.
