Guy De Bièvre (º Brussels, 1961)

Composer, arranger, musician, sound engineer, sound designer and sound art curator.

My music has been commissioned and/or performed by musicians such as Guy Klucevsek, Seth Josel, Anne La Berge, The Bozza Mansion Project, Gene Carl, Annette Sachs, Zivatar Trio, Zwerm and various local and international organizations.
'Polka Dots and Laser Beams' was recorded by Guy Klucevsek and the Ain't Nothin' But a Polka Band and issued on CD on the Japanese Eva label (and soon to be re-issued on the Starkland label) and the Italian Pierrot Lunaire label; Bending the Tonic (a double CD) and The Very Slow Disco Suite were issued by Canal Street Records; other works have been recorded and broadcasted by the Flemish Public Radio. In 2002 a collaboration with Phill Niblock was published on the Ringtones CD (Touch).

Currently I am again active as a performer (guitar and lap steel), which recently resulted in collaborations with composers Phill Niblock, Tom Hamilton and Peter Zummo.

As a composer/performer I focus on open form composition, which was also the topic of the PhD I obtained at the School of Arts, Brunel University, London.

Next to all this I am teaching (LUCA, school of Arts, Brussels), freelancing as a writer, sound engineer, sound designer and consultant. I just finished (2018) the sound design for the film Night Has Come by Peter Van Goethem. I was the curator of the audio art series Earwitness at CCNOA (Center for Contemporary Non Objective Art) and INTERVAL in Gent and of the Culture Mile in Enschede, Holland (first installment in November 2008 (Bill Fontana)).
