What is B-Wave about?

B: stands for Belgian.
Wave: stands for waveform, we’re all about synthesizers and synthesizer music! But it also stands for: a wave washing over Belgium to promote synth music.

What is B-Wave?
B-Wave is an independent non-profit organisation. We aren’t influenced by record companies or any other beneficiary parties. It’s the music thats counts.

Why B-Wave?
We all share the same passion: synthesizer music ! Many of us actually also play the synthesizer, love to twist the knobs and experiment until we’ve created the pictured sound. We feel that “our” music is completly neglected by the “big” media. This is trange because the synthesizer is perhaps thé most used instrument in soundtracks!

B-Wave Festival:
We organize this annual event with several great stage acts and a fair with demonstrations and recordlabels, specialised distributors etc. We also co-orporate with Cosmic Nights (Rhea), the fantastic annual Planetarium concerts in Brussels. Furthermore we have several unique events coming up… keep yourself posted – maybe follow us on Facebook for our blog there.

What do we mean by “synthesizer music”? Well, if this may help you: we like Klaus Schulze, modular synth bleeps, Vangelis, rattling Berliner Schule sequencers, the more ambient styles like Steve Roach, Brian Eno… Or the “new generation” of electronic music musicians like Trentemøller, …

We’re synthesizer freaks! Yes, we simply can’t stop talking about it… or have enough synths… 😉  Come to the B-Wave Festival and you’ll see that many people are likewise synth-minded… talk about your passion, share your passion.
