• Stereophonic in(ter)ventions

Some geeky impressions from my artistic residency at Muziekhuis in Utrecht. Preparing the technical part of a new radio phonic live performance commissioned by Gaudeamus, to be premiered by ensemble But What About upcoming September 2018. Now, together with Ruud van Kluten re-discovering several historical speaker and headphone stereophony possibilities. Most of it is a loud and clear re confirmation of the tremendously deep ‘power of sound’.

• Studio Jonas Staal – NL

Exactly a week ago a new collaboration between Maya Felixbrodt, Samuel Vriezen myself & Studio Jonas Staal was born at Propositions #2: Assemblism (at BAK, Basis voor Actuele Kunst, in Utrecht). We were experimenting with an unusual combination of political activism and compositional thinking – resulting in an extremely uplifting and also mind bending live performance experience: the then heard voices & sounds, discussions, statements and question marks,  will certainly continue resonating within us. Now hoping, actually planning,… to bring this to live again, in updated formats, new gatherings and assemblisms, somewhere in the (near) future.
