Annette Vande Gorne

Annette Vande Gorne studied classical music at the Royal Conservatory of Mons and Brussels and with Jean Absil (Fuga, instrumental composition); electroacoustic composition with Guy Reibel and Pierre Schaeffer at the Paris National Conservatory. She founded Musiques & Recherches, launched several series of concerts and an acousmatics festival “L’Espace du son”, after assembling a 80-loudspeaker system, an acousmonium. She is the editor of the musical aesthetics review Lien. She also founded the composition competition Metamorphoses and the spatialized performance competition “Espace du son”. She gradually put together a virtual documentation centre on that art: . She gives numerous spatialized acousmatic music performances, both of her own works and the works of international composers on her acousmonium. Her music generally aims to create an abstract and expressive non\anecdotic musical language. The relationship between text and music is another domain of research. Her new acousmatic Opera with the poet Werner Lambersy, renews electroacoustic music’s ties with the past.
