Vande Gorne Annette
Annette Vande Gorne presents repertory works of acousmatics in addition to her own works, usually on a 80-loudspeaker acousmonium. Her music focuses on the sounding energies of nature. She uses natural sounds and transforms them in the studio to create an abstract, expressive, and non-anecdotal musical language. The relationship between text and music is another subject she often explores. She studied classical music at the Royal Conservatory of Mons and Brussels and electroacoustic composition at the Paris National Conservatory. She is the artistic director of the international acousmatic festival L’espace du son and of the international competitions Espace du son and Métamorphoses. She founded and still leads the non-profit association Musiques & Recherches and the studio Métamorphose d’Orphée. She is the publisher of Lien and of the Electrodoc documentation center www.musiques-recherches.be. She taught electroacoustic composition at the Royal Conservatories of Liege, Brussels and Mons. She is professor emeritus since 2016.
