‘Deus Digitalis´ is an audio visual installation by visual artist Hans Verhaegen and composer Jean Delouvroy. On occasion of the official opening of this year´s exhibition, this creation will be integrated in the characteristic context of the Orpheus Institute´s concert hall. The basic elements consist of computer-steered animation of the recognizable distinctive human pattern by Hans Verhaegen and the inventive composed sound layers by Jean Delouvroy. It´s the first time both artists combine forces.

Jean Delouvroy (°1967, Belgium) studied at the Royal Music Conservatory in Ghent (harmony, counterpoint, analysis, project contemporary music, jazz arranging & composition, electric guitar). In 1988 he won the national jazz composing and arranging contest (Belgian Artistic Promotion Sabam). Afterwards he worked as arranger for the Belgian Radio Television Big Band, where his interest in contemporary music was also stimulated. Furthermore he makes use of electronics. He creates soundscapes by recycling his own acoustic material, mainly in cooperation with other art disciplines. He lives and works in Brussels.
Deus Digitalis is of potential historical significance. That is according to the wellknown Rhizome Artbase. We are very conscious of the incredible lightness of such a statement. But still, it is there and we are very proud. :)
