Festival Images Sonores – An Index of Metals
- Date(s) and time(s): 08.12.2016 - 20:00
- Place: Liège, Musée de la Boverie
With An Index of Metals, the ensemble of the Royal Conservatoire of Liège takes up the challenge of this video-opera that was the last piece composed by Fausto Romitelli. Evoking the spirit of Futurism in the 1910s, Romitelli creates an orgy of sound and light synonymous with a deep-sea dive, the experience of total perception, the ‘magmatic flow of sounds, forms and colours, with no other narration besides hypnosis, possession, trance’.
This performance will be preceded by three pieces by students in the composition class of the Royal Conservatoire of Liège, combining music and video art.

Judith Adler de Oliveira, Boston-Liège ** for electronics and video (2016)
Jérémie De Witte, A black-and-white-and-color film ** for drums, electronics and video (2016)
