After the announcements about ADE Next and the ADE Playground art route, it is now time to focus on ADE Sound Lab, the conference covering everything about art, sound and technology and the dedicated place for those of you interested in innovative ways to produce sound.

If you plan on visiting ADE’s Festival or Playground make sure to grab the annual ADE Card, which gives you tons of advantages instantly.

In partnership with Creative Industries Fund NL, this year’s theme is ‘Frequencies’, translating light into sound while also exploring the basis of what constitutes sound itself, where a selection of audio-visual projects by talented artists will be presented during the event. The Compagnietheater will once again be at the heart and centre of Sound Lab, with many tech company’s showcasing their products -of which include Ableton, Roland, Native Instruments- will provide demonstrations throughout the festival.

The full program for ADE Sound Lab has been completed, comprising of art installations, performances and talks. See below for more or take a look at the full program.
