LAbORATORIUM 2011 is a two-year multidisciplinary project on contemporary music and sound art for students of art schools in Belgium and abroad.

LAbORATORIUM 2011 is a joint project of Champ d'Action, deSingel and the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp (Artesis Hogeschool) that immerses music students (both performing musicians and students in composition) six days in contemporary music and contemporary sound art with a strong focus on the use of electronics in new music.
Besides students in music LAbORATORIUM 2011 also wants to attract young artists from the audiovisual and sound installation scene where image and sound work together. The next edition of LAbORATORIUM focuses in particular on the work of the Dutch-Cypriot composer and multimedia artist Yannis Kyriakides (Conservatory The Hague), and the American composer Mark Applebaum (Stanford University). LAbORATORIUM 2011 also highlights the long and fruitfull collaboration between composer and director of Champ d'Action Serge Verstockt and architect Werner Vander Meersch (Sint Lucas Antwerp).

Participants receive an intensive six-day trail full of workshops, support of composers and musicians of Champ d'Action, performances, exhibition of sound installations, open rehearsals, individual instrument and composition sessions. There will be a great final concert / happening in deSingel on Saturday, March 19, 2011 as part of the festival Ars Musica Antwerp where students and Champ d'Action artists present their work.

The aim of the project is to give participants practical experience in an ideal and experimental framework. Champ d'Action coordinates the project, committed artists and musicians alongside deSingel for logistical support.

Besides for students from the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp, who can include this project in their curriculum, LAbORATORIUM is open for students from other colleges or other interested people aswell.
