Joost Fonteyne (BE) initially organized contemporary music concerts. Gradually, his interest shifted towards sound art and sound installations. In 2002 he curated “Audio Frames” dealing with the relation between sound and image. Afterwards, he started organizing exhibitions in public space dedicated to sound, at first entitled “Happy New Ears” and later transformed into “Klinkende Stad” as part of the Flanders Festival Kortrijk. He regularly invites artists to use the sound of the city of Kortrijk as the basis for their work. In addition, he is also a lecturer at Transmedia, an advanced master program in arts, media and design.
