An ordinary beer crate has 24 small bottles that can be tuned (with water) in semitones, giving a range of two octaves. That's more than enough for wild luthier Max Vandervorst to come up with tasty melodies, enriched by the use of the looper pedal.

Phonoscopes

with Hadrien Vénat

workshop

14 :30-17 :30
next to the Aquacanta installation

Inspired by the Aquacanta installation and guided by French artist-maker Hadrien Vénat, participants will learn how to create unconventional listening tools. Conceived as curious portable accessories, the hybrid devices will be assembled using scrap materials — such as tin boxes, wires, strings, metal and plastic fastenings, cardboard, foam… — and will allow one to listen to the Sûre River and its landscape creatively.

Do you like to draw and imagine stories that mix reality and fiction? Guided by Laura and Olivier of the duo d-o-t-s, during this workshop you will be able to contribute to the creation of a large illustrated fresco which tells the life and history of the Sûre river and all its inhabitants: humans, birds, fish, plants... Open to everyone without age limits, this workshop invites participants to co-create a paper piece that will feed into the publication that d-o-t-s are preparing as part of their Aquacanta project.

Sugar Casting

with Mathilde Caylou

workshop

16:30
next to the Constellations flottantes installation

Inspired by the installation Constellations flottantes, artist Mathilde Caylou will show us the world of glass where she created her installation. While the technique is similar, the material will not displease the greediest. Instead of blowing glass, she introduces young and old to the art of sugar casting. An experience that will awaken all the senses, magical and fascinating for the eyes and certainly soft and sweet for the tongue.
