Stijn Demeulenaere

Stijn Demeulenaere is a sound-artist, a radio maker and searching musician. He holds degrees in sociology, cultural studies and studied radio at the RITS school of arts. In 2009 he started out as a sound artist, showing his first installation SmallTalk at the Burning Ice festival at Kaaitheater in Brussels.

Stijn is attracted to sound because of its directness, it’s malleability, and it’s mystery. In sound he tries to unravel social structures, personal history and the unconscious imagination of people. He is currently working around the themes of the ruin of listening and the personal experiences of sound.

Lately, Stijn has been increasingly involved with dance. He created the soundtracks for the dance pieces As It Fell  by Marisa Cabal and Stav Yeini, and Vartaloiden Kaupunki  by Veli Lehtovaara. Other collaborations included directors and video artists Ychaï Gassenbauer, Pierre van Heddegem and Visual Kitchen.



The exhibition presents recents works by four artists, Mats Dekock, Stijn Demeulenaere, Elias Heuninck and Jeroen Uyttendaele, who were in residency at Overtoon and Werktank in 2014 and 2015. The exhibited works share a particular interest in fleeting moments, which manifest themselves in fractions of sound and light.
