The Wild Classical Music Ensemble: A name totally unknown at its introduction. Where did they fetch it from ? Instantly the floor falls silent when the four mentally retarded musicians, Johan, Linh, Kim and Rudy together with their artistic mentor and drummer boy Damien, all ill at ease, clear their way among drums, trumpets, violins, melodica, samplers and an electric guitar.
Concentration, suspense, beads of sweat, a sigh, a cough, and then...'the scream'. For over forty minutes they are pouring a sauce of punk, rock, noise and free music all over the audience. Finally here we have a group of persons with a mental retardation to pack in all stigmata: not obedient or staying in line, no beat of showbiz or schmalzy popular songs here, let alone a flavor of Carl Orff! This music is neither contemporary, nor popular. It can't be labelled as subversive outsider nor as avant-garde. This music is the fantasy and emotion of five musicians, directly translated into sound and color. It looks like an ultimate 'relief'. Their research of musical instruments and the way they deal with sounds and samples evidences a much sound approach to what music can be. The infrastructure -Kim's rock-riffs on his Fender Stratocaster-offers a structure and a rhythm to the group as for the composition of their songs. Their voices are piercing the thickest-skinned elephant, they delight the ears and chatter at once. It is just a simple must to encounter this group.

+ Sun Araw (dj set)!
Over multiple cassette releases, three EPs, six full-length albums and some arresting visual work, Cameron Stallones aka Sun Araw has evolved as a singular purveyor of low-end psychedelia, melted afrobeat and warped dub.

+ Antoine Boute is never far away from Les Ateliers Claus. On this happening he will perform pieces out of his new book 'Les Morts Rigolos'. This work is a experimental family thriller, which he wrote together in public with his children. In their stories they kill plenty, but never do it on purpose.

WORDS OF WISE MEN & FOOLS
The wise man points to a star and the fool looks at the boogers on the wise man's finger.


SOLDES Almanach "pop et intello", est une revue ''d'art et d'essai" franco-belge, ou la BD côtoie la recherche et l'investigation. "Pour qui dessinez, écrivez, éditez-vous?" est une mauvaise question parce-que le public de SOLDES n'est pas préexistant, SOLDES crée son public. SOLDES est hors normes, sans cible, sans niche et sans gibier. Une assemblée contributive internationale où de multiples "JE" occupent tour à tour une scène de 180 pages au format géant qui attire un public hétérogène et curieux entre averti et non averti. SOLDES est la revue des ouvriers philosophes et des intellectuels bricoleurs.

SOLDES est né à Bruxelles dans les années 80 en formule trimestrielle l'espace de 10 numéros, dans ce même format et après une très longue interruption reparaît depuis 2010 par la volonté de Marc Borgers, artiste belge, graphiste de formation, auteur d'affiches, typographe et journaliste, vivant à Paris, ancien contributeur de Jean-François Bizot, (pape de la contre-culture et de radio Nova à Paris)

Une Expo rétrospective de Soldes aura lieu à partir du 19 juin à la galerie Artitude, espace Rivoli à Bruxelles. Elle fait suite à celle de Paris au Point Ephémère 15 mai - 2 juin
