Enjoy the surprises offered by performance artists inspired by the artworks, and at 9 pm let the Citadelic Jazz Yelemani Trio knock you for six with their African vibes influenced by jazz, impro, rock and electronics.
Design Museum Gent
Music with added fibre!
Design Museum Gent thinks it’s time to tackle the ever-growing waste mountain, polluting company cars and the ageing population. The solution to all these problems may come from an unexpected corner: new materials. More specifically composites, which combine the flexibility and rigidity of fibres with the lightness of plastics. This exhibition features ultra-light folding scooters and lower limb prosthetics, as well as boards made from discarded textiles and sustainable tiny houses. From 20:00 until 20:45 and from 21:15 until 22:00, Jasmijn Lootens and Patrick Housen will treat you to some exhilarating grooves and smooth melodies, combining the cello with live electronics in their LOOP-e_D performance. From 22:30 onwards, you can relax during a live soundsculpting/DJ set.
St Peter’s Abbey
