Rubén Orio (Logroño, 1988), musician based in Brussels. During my career, being a percussionist has allowed me to surf and search in the huge possibilities that percussion offers.

20:30 - 64-Feet brengt Color - Conservatorium Antwerpen orgelklas
The duo "64-FEET" started in 2009 after it was invited for a duo concert on the famous historic organ of "Torre de Juan Abad" in Spain.
Repertoire for four hands for the organ is scarce, and Ann Eysermans was given the assignment for this work. This resulted in "7 little pieces for 2 organists". he combination of contemporary music on historic organs produces some special effects.
Since the appearance of the organ in the Middle Ages, no other instrument is capable of producing such a diversity of sounds. One can call it a genuine synthesizer. Unfortunately the organ is barely featured in the world of contemporary music.
The duo "64-FEET" aims to change this situation by presenting a surprising program, bringing together old and new music, and embracing new technologies, live-electronics, synthesizers and electronic organs. This ensures a logical evolution of the organ-building tradition and puts the organ back into a well-deserved perspective in our contemporary world. "64-FEET" is ensemble in residence with Champ dAction, an ensemble with production facility and studio for contemporary music.
21:00 - Takao Hyakutome & Lauro Faoro - ChampdAction/Studio
Having met in Germany in 2014, Italian flutist Laura Faoro and Japanese violinist Takao Hyakutome decided to form a duo and build an international career. It did not take long to be recognized as one of promising duos for contemporary music, especially by Italian composers.
Rather uncommon combination of two melodic instruments motivates composers to write new pieces for them, namely among others Sergio Lanza, Riccardo Vaglini and Alexander Sigman. In 2016, the duo has received scholarship from Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, and GAI - Association for the Circuit of the Young Italian Artists.
