At the crossroads of art, science, and industry, Casco Phil is working on a project together with the University of Antwerp, energy company Vleemo, and the Port of Antwerp.

On 14 June – not coincidentally also World Wind Day – we will be taking the air currents above the docks and using them to compose a new piece of music. Thanks to an algorithm developed by the University of Antwerp, we will translate the wind’s power and the windmills’ movement into a playable score that our musicians will play live, on sight. An intriguing project bringing together a great deal of expertise to share an important message.
