We’re very happy to count S M O G as one of our new members!
S M O G is the name of a series of contemporary and non-classical music concerts held in Brussels. Taking place in chilled and lively contexts, S M O G is an opportunity to get to know people’s latest works on music composition and sound research.
S M O G is a new itinerant space where you can approach music without prejudices, on a regular basis.
