Following the first event event of the BodyControlled series, BodyControlled #2 focuses on the idea of incompatible matter. While BC #1 was organized around the concept of “other spaces”, using the specific architecture at LEAP and provoking it in order to synthesize new environments, BC #2 combines space and sound.

Through exploring the physical reality of sound-instruments and objects, complex acoustic spaces emerge. Sound of any kind - vocals, instruments, vibrations - become a material themselves, a hybrid. Creating Matter-Incompatible, the exhibition focuses on searching for the hidden materiality of acoustics, where distinguishing between live-produced sound and mechanically generated playback becomes a challenging self-observation.

All performances will be available from 20h CET via livestream on
