"Voix et vues planétaires."
Henri Pousseur is a living legend. He studied music in Liège and Brussels from 1947 till 1953 and was a part of the European avantgarde with Pierre Boulez, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Luciano Berio. In 1957 he joined the Darmstadtschule where he picked up an interest in avantgarde research, tape composition and serialism. Elise Simoens (musicologist at Matrix, Leuven and at the university of Brussels) brings you one of Pousseur's most recent compositions at the (K-RAA-K)3 festival: "Voix et Vues Planétaires" (2003/2004) is an etnographic electro-acoustic work that brings sounds and images together. "Voix et Vues" is a part of the 16 hour "Seize Paysages Planétaires" (2000), based on samples of traditional music from all over the world.
