Belgian Modular Day 2024 Set for Saturday, June 15



via Belgian Modular Day

"Welcome to Belgian Modular Day II in Ghent on Saturday, June 15.

A well-filled day, starting at 1:30 pm and the last powercase will be turned off around 10:00 pm. Be there or be a square wave…

Modular Monster Jam
We start Modular day with the world record attempt for the biggest number of musicians jamming together with modular synths.

Demos & talks
We’ll serve up talks and demos from these Belgian creators: Joranalogue, Klavis, Skull & Circuits, ThreeTom, Voltage Vibes, Morphor and Alfa Delta.

Live acts
We close the day with concerts by Modtech (Frederik Strobbe), Dries Geusens, Halfgeleider (Maarten Voeten), Lieven Stockx, Tectonia (Ricardo Verschut) and ArkOdd (Vincent Vanesse).

Synapse workshop
During the day you’ll get synaptic waves from the Synapse workshop.

Meet & patch
You’ll find plenty of fine places to patch and catch up on bleeps and beeps.

Newbleeps
Newbleeps are very welcome, it is the ideal opportunity to meet our warm crackling community."

And via ThreeTom Modular:

"I’m pleased to announce the second edition of Belgian Modular Day, which will take place on the 15th of June in Ghent at the venue of Wisper on the site of Dok Noord.

During BMD I will be giving a talk titled “A wavefolder is not a wave folder”. This talk wil showcase how I use simulations in my design workflow. If there’s things you’d like me to specifically talk about regarding this topic (or another), please feel free to reply to this mail :)

I’m proud to contribute to Belgian Modular Day by sponsoring the performance of Dries Geusens at 20:40. Dries has a preference for self-built, analog modules, and live recordings. He approaches patches as “impressionistic snapshots of the temporary state of the system”.

Dries describes his latest release “Sakura Variations – 4 studies for modular synthesizer” as "4 pieces combined in 1 track serving beautiful sounddesign, fantastic harmonies, emotional-deep-calm layers, inspiring transitions, modular solos, energetic-relaxing-hypnotising rhythms and sequences with sometimes a jazzy flavor." My personal favourite track by Dries is “Variations on Sakura (live)”, a recording from his live performance during the previous edition of Belgian Modular Day.

You may also know Dries from the bands Nordmann, Knelpunt, and Elias, where he plays bass and synthesizer."
