As for a little post-holiday Overtoon news, we would like to share with you some images of Dominik 't Jolle's recent residency at STUK Leuven. In a parallel world, Dominik would have been part of STUK's Emerging Sound showcase alongside Andrés Navarro García, aRzu Saglam and Beyt Al Tapes. Not so this time around.

Instead, Dominik was offered residency time and continued to develop her work Tinnere. Behind The Tune together with Maria Komarova. You too can have a peek at this immersive work by clicking here.

Tinnere. Behind The Tune by Dominik 't Jolle

Dominik has been suffering from ringing in the ears and even sound hallucinations for much of her life. Already as a child she observed vibrations and flashes of light with realistic resonances in the room where she was. She woke up one morning with a deafening, high sine tone that never stopped.

As a sound artist, she wants to translate those impressions into an audiovisual project that can be understood by a wide audience, but also by her doctors and researchers in tinnitus research. Tinere. Behind the Tune is to become a work of art that maps the tinnitus spectrum using sound and projection.


Beyond Music: Sound Art Parcours, group show

Buzzing tubes, vibrating steel plates, blistering encounters of sound, light and movement. Beyond Music is an intimate trail along four surprising sound installations. In a small group you walk from work to work, taking your time to absorb each of the works’ diverse sound worlds. This edition of Beyond Music brings together the best elements of an exhibition (experiencing art spatially) and a concert (listening to a sounding story together) in a full corona proof format.

Group exhibition featuring Murmurs by Christoph De Boeck, and Incidence of Light by Mariska De Groot, alongside work by Mika Oki and Jeroen Vandesande, one of the artists to be part of Overtoon's residency programme.

D-E-A-L studio
Overtoon is part of a diverse group of artists and art organizations that are looking for space in Brussels to organize affordable and qualitative artist studios. Together with more than 100 artists and 10 art organisations we are currently based in the former Actiris offices in the heart of Brussels.

But: we need to move out before the start of next summer. Therefore, we and many others are currently on the lookout for several 1000m² of vacant property, be it floors or entire buildings, to manage art studios and art offices in Brussels. Over the past eight years, we have built up extensive experience to ensure proper maintenance and management of the spaces, safekeeping and contract handling. You can find all info here. If you would happen to have any ideas, leads or scandalous proposals, do reach out to charline@overtoon.org.
