>Looking Glass got the opportunity to organise a series of performances
>and installations in the ice cellars of the VUB [Vrije Universiteit
>Brussel]. This historical location consists of  2  subterranean
>[connected] rooms.  With a width of 10 metres, a heigth of 12 metres
>and a total  length of 60 metres the space takes the proportions of a
>cathedral. Due to the accoustic and spatial qualities of the location,
>most of the presented projects will concentrate on the perception of
>sound in different forms [time, space, movement, connection,
>interference, visualization of sound].
>The first in a series of collaborative performances is a project by
>mxhz.org/guy van belle. He invited the singer/composer anne wellmer.
>They both work with sounds in environments and networks, and in the
>performance they will use the spatial properties of the historical ice
>The performance will be [double] live-streamed towards the looking
>glass gallery in the center of brussels. Those who are not prepared to
>descend 12 m under can always enjoy the performance out on the street!
>According to the russian futurist sound poet vasily kamensky  we chose
>the word okno for this series of on-location projects.
>The word OKNO [window]     = O + K + N + O=
>means : space and matter [glass and wood + boundary of night + air =
