Artefact Sound is a thematic series for adventurous music in STUK. Inspired by the festival theme Wired for Empathy, this edition investigates how experiencing music together can make us more empathic. The mainly Belgian programme focuses firstly on surprising musical collaborations, such as between Slumberland & Sainkho Namtchylak, Will Guthrie & Mette Ingvartsen, or Geoffrey Burton & Sarah Yu Zeebroek. Other artists eagerly await the premiere of their new piece or the live presentation of their new album, like Zwerm, Pak Yan Lau and Benjamin Abel & The Unrequired Love. And then there's more ways to dive into the theme, like an audio walk and a podcast.
