The Logos Foundation is the brainchild of composer Godfried-Willem Raes. It’s a unique professional organisation run by artists themselves, for the promotion of new music and audio-related arts by means of new music production, concerts, performances, composition, technological research projects and other contemporary music-related activities. Every year about 80 concerts and performances are organised in the Logos concert hall "Tetraeder" (designed by Raes as well). Many international artists like Jerry Hunt, David Moss, Jaap Blonk, Joelle Leandre, Cornelius Cardew, Gavin Bryars have performed in this place. The Logos archive includes thousands of (often unique) recordings, scores, books and magazines of experimental music. There is a technically well-equipped studio that is especially used for electronic music. In the Logos laboratory a lot of research is done on instrument and robot building and human interfaces (wireless gesture control, real time sound analysis, microwave radar, acceleration sensors, pyrodetectors, light sensors, myoelectric devices, brainwaves, EEG and ECG.....). The Logos Foundation also has its own ensembles.
