Heliophone is the final instalment of a collaborative research with the Laboratory for Acoustics, KU Leuven , supported by an IWT CICI-grant.
Christ Glorieux, Head of the KU Leuven LRD division Acoustics and Thermal Physics explains how he, and his team, have experienced the collaboration, and which insights have surfaced through the collaborative research.
Alexandra Supper, researcher at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Maastricht University completes the presentations. She’ll elaborate on the history of the relation between art and science, specifically in the field of sonification.

During the moderated debate, the speakers are joined by Katlijn Malfliet, vicerector van Cultuur-, Diversiteits- en Duurzaamheidsbeleid KU Leuven, and Pascal Cools, Flanders DC.
