DEEP SPACES - 25 February 2010
The opening event Deep Spaces presents a selection of audiovisual 
adventures in spaces defined by sound, light, smoke and lasers. Immerse 
yourself in Thomas Köner’s mesmerizing spatial sound tapestries, while 
his colleague, Jürgen Reble, takes you on a visual journey through the 
darker side of his alchemical chemograms. Haswell & Hecker will perform 
their radical UPIC Diffusion Session, an infinity of extreme sound and 
engulfing lasers. And Monolake and Tarik Barri will transport you 
through their spatial audiovisual universe.

EXPANDED SPACE - 26 February 2010
The Expanded Space programme revisits the heyday of Expanded Cinema. The 
magnificent film Color Sound Frames by Paul Sharits is dusted off for 
the big screen, Bruce McClure will show us a new performance he made 
with beautiful 16mm recordings of pelicans, from a 1950s nature 
documentary, and Greg Pope en Gert-Jan Prins will join forces to bring 
an homage to the 70s solid light film Line Describing A Cone by Anthony 

ACOUSTIC SPACES - 27 February 2010
This more than four-hour-long programme is devoted to various approaches 
to soundscape composition and features works produced by several 
generations of composers and musicians. From acoustic ecology to extreme 
field recordings: BJ Nilsen will present his latest thunderstorm 
recordings, Booming dunes from the Oman deserts by Jacob Kirkegaard, and 
Gilles Aubry will take us on a sonic journey across european airports.

BEYOND SPACE - 28 February 2010
An extraordinary programme in a remarkable location: the Beyond Space 
event in the Artis Planetarium includes the international premiere of a 
composition by the recently deceased innovative composer Maryanne 
Amacher, a new audiovisual work by the Italian multi-talent TeZ; Evelina 
Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand will explore the space with laser and soap 
bubbles, accompanied by live audio by Francisco López; and the British 
designer Paul Prudence brings a visual spectacle specially designed for 
the Planetarium dome.
