In the past 25 years Hans Roels (°1971) has created experimental music performances, often with live electronics or computer algorithms. Since 2015 he opened up this practice to sounds and situations outside the usual concert hall and art institutions. His in-situ performances focus on listening and sounding as a multisensorial experience, related to real-world places and situations.
Hans Roels studied piano and composition in the conservatory of Ghent (Belgium) and his compositions were played in many European countries and the USA in concert halls such as Issue Room Project (New York), Cafe Oto (London), Hochschule fur Musik (Keulen), Felix Meritis (Amsterdam), Circolo de Bellas Artes (Madrid) and de Singel (Antwerp).
Between 2001 and 2008 he was responsible for the concert programming in the Logos Foundation, a centre for experimental audio arts. In 2014 he finished his Ph.D. at the School of Arts Ghent, where he has taught live electronic music for 10 years. He has also worked as a researcher in the Orpheus Institute (2010-15) and the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp (2016-19).
