During this mass we look into the future through the eyes of futurologist Maya Van Leemput. As senior researcher at the Applied Futures Research - Open Time knowledge centre of the Erasmus University College Brussels, Maya Van Leemput is responsible for research design, coordination and communication, reporting and management. Her work focuses on futures research in the fields of science, technology, culture and development. As the UNESCO Chair, Maya works on capacity building on futures and co-creation. Maya is a member of the World Futures Studies Federation, the interdisciplinary visual arts collective OST and the Association of Professional Futurists. Enough material for a particularly intriguing look at the future.

Baritone saxophonist Stien Carlier graduated from the Maastricht Academy of Music and was immediately allowed to go on tour with the wind section of the immensely popular Dutch band Slagerij van Kampen. She also plays with various bands such as Muze Jazz Orchestra and Bruna. In 2016 her mother Solange passed away, as a form of therapy Stien started composing and writing songs under the name Westhinder. In 2022, the wonderful eponymous debut album by Westhinder was released, on which Stien exchanged her baritone sax for her own voice and electronics. It is this Stien we will also see at work during this celebration of the Mass. Warm, fragile electronica on a Sunday morning.
