Twenty years ago a program, entitled "martiensgohome!" as an homage to the novel of Fredric Brown, made its debut on air on Radio Campus. A few years later the show has evolved into a more complex project where the point is not to promote nor broadcast music but to create it on the spot and improvise, each week, one hour of sound art made of field-recordings, samples, archives and electronics. Martiensgohome! regularly leave their radio studio to perform live or make in-situ interventions. This anniversary will be the ideal pretext to realize a long dreamed project of an installation based on musical birthday cards, which will be exposed and then reinterpreted by martiensgohome and their guests.

Thursday 28/4 : 18:00 - 21:00 vernissage and presentation of installation
Friday 29/4 : 18:00 installation open / 20:30 concert by martiensgohome with guests Jean-François Brohée and Quentin Nicolai.



martiensgohome is a sound collective operating on the radio every thursday 9:30pm on radio campus 92.1 FM, in brussels each programme consist of one hour-long improvisation using field-recording and broken everyday electronics to compose some kind of anti-ambient soundscape. martiensgohome is also performing live whenever possible, preferably in special settings, composing site-specific interventions or playing unconventional venues


a few tracks are available on SOUNDCLOUD
a few others on BANDCAMP
an archive of the radio program is maintained at ARCHIVE.org
