Arnaud Van de Cauter has devoted himself for many years to the study of seventeenth century Dutch music. He is the professor of organ at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Liège, a teacher of practical harmony and corporal training at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Mons and titular organist at Notre-Dame au Sablon in Brussels. Regularly invited to perform in Belgium and abroad, he is also artistic director of the Festival Voce et Organo (Church of Our Lady of the Chapel – Brussels) and has made several recordings hailed by the international press.
After training in somatic therapy with Jean Grauwels, a Feldenkrais practitioner and osteopath in Waterloo, and an in-depth study of Moshe Feldenkrais’ findings, Arnaud Van de Cauter trained in Somatic Experiencing® in Zurich (Peter Levine – Polarity Bildungszentrum). Drawing from these experiences, he created the Intégration Corporelle à l’Instrument (I.C.I) (Body Integration to the Instrument), a sensitive approach to artistic practice based on the development of an organic body/instrument relationship. He is regularly invited to give courses, internships and trainings in this field, intended for musicians from all disciplines (www.echo-art.be).
