City of Sounds
is a new participatory project spreading the love for sound, the act of listening, field recording and composing – via numerous children workshops. All field recordings from those workshops are collected as an ever growing sonic map of The Hague. In parallel to this I was commissioned to create a portrait of The Hague, in the form of a new sound sculpture. Both the sonic map and the sound sculpture are now exhibited at Atrium City Hall.

Tremendously honored that Kropka na Ogonie/Soroka Fruwa (2016, starring Marianna Soroka) has been pre-selected as the Belgian entry for the ISCM World New Music Days 2017 in Vancouver (Canada). News about the final selection will follow early April 2017.
Yesterday Thursday September 22nd was the launch event of audio DH at Todays Art Festival, Korzo Theater, The Hague (NL).
audio DH is a compilation album featuring a selection of 250 creators related in some way or another to the blossoming sound art scene of The Hague. Also check out www.audiodh.nl for the 16 hours of experimental music and sound art by those 250 artists (free streaming and download !). My sonic contribution to audio DH is Etc. tra la la a collaboration with Motoko Honda.
