AudioCubes from Belgium become international success
From the 2nd to the 4th of April the 5th edition of the Qwartz awards take place in Paris, a prestigious festival in which the International Electronic Music Awards are handed out. Nothing special you would say, except that this year someone from Belgium is about to get one of the most important awards in the festival: Bert Schiettecatte (30).

In 2002 Bert Schiettecatte graduates at Stanford University in the US, and returns to Belgium with his Master's degree in arts, music and technology, from the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). In 2004 Bert founds the startup Percussa, and starts developing AudioCubes, supported by the Flemish IWT and Innovatiecentrum.

The AudioCubes are a modular live performance instrument and let you make music through a novel hands-on interface. The cubes are wireless. You can work with 2 cubes or with more, every cube can have different behaviour and colour, configurable by the user. The fact that the AudioCubes are very visual and attractive is a nice extra.

With the AudioCubes, Bert is targeting the market of (semi-)professional musician and live performer, and with success. By now, AudioCubes are distributed in more than 25 different countries. Well known artists such as Pragha Khan, Richard Devine, Test Shot Starfish, ... are using the cubes.
