Gentse Feesten: IPEM presents The Experimental Sessions. This year Gentse Feesten were cancelled… but luckily not entirely! There are some great online alternatives to the many concerts and events that would take place. Among those: IPEM’s Experimental Sessions. This is a series of livestreamed concerts from our very own research lab in the heart of Ghent (De Krook). As we are a research group in systematic musicology, we will ask our audience to answer some questions about their experiences of the concert(s). Every concert will have its own research question, but all of them will look into how we can enrich livestreamed concerts in the future. So, help science along and enjoy some wonderful music while you do it!
For questions or comments you can contact Kelsey Onderdijk (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Register via the following link:
During registration we will ask you some initial questions to gather information about our audience. This questionnaire will take 5 minutes. After a concert we will ask you to fill out a second questionnaire. This will take approximately 10 minutes. To participate in this research you need to be 18 years or older.

Wim Pelgrims (percussion), Elisabeth Klinck (violin) and Ben Bertrand (bass clarinet) are musicians of the ensemble Nemø. Now they are getting together just for us. They describe their music as mysterious and melancholic rivers that will emerge you into an experimental sea of sounds. Expect flirtatious interplay in their concert called FLIRT.

Jonas De Rave plays the accordion and keys and has a wide range of genres in his repertoire. He is well-experienced on stage, as well as a teacher and composer.
