This is a single level hall with a seating capacity of 144
places, mainly intended for contemporary experimentation but also
for other media. Consequently the Music Studio is fitted with all
the necessary equipment: an acoustically adjustable wall, technical
equipment with adjustable suspension points on the ceiling,
removable floor panels covering cable ducts, etc.
The arrangement of the audience can also be experimented with,
since the hall doesn't have a fixed orientation: thanks to its
three separate entrance routes, the audience and artists can enter
the room in different ways. Because the hall can be arranged at
will, the tiers, stage and seating are all flexible. This also
encourages a study of performance practice. The Music Studio's
laboratory function generates alternative possibilities for
concerts and presentations. As a small concert hall, the Music
Studio is highly suitable for presenting work-in-progress and
research projects. Furthermore the space can be used for more
intimate sub-programmes of the more traditional range of music
(jazz, contemporary music). As a second stage, the Studio allows
parallel programmes to be run during intensive programme
The Music Studio's intimacy is the ideal environment for lecture
recitals, master-classes and workshops as well as for colloquia and
other similar activities.
The Music Studio has two large windows providing plenty of
daylight. This not only increases the room's potential but also
makes rehearsals considerably more agreeable.
Next to the Music Studio is the Blue Foyer, which leads to the
corridor next to the Blue Hall.
