• Stereophonic in(ter)ventions

Some geeky impressions from my artistic residency at Gaudeamus and Muziekhuis in Utrecht. Preparing the technical part of a new radio phonic live performance commissioned by Gaudeamus Muziekweek, 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’.

• interview Radio Klara, VRT/China

Globalization and telecommunication at its best ! Today Vincent Meessen and me had a talk about the exhibition Patterns for (Re)cognition at Radio Klara (VRT). Vincent live from the radio studio in Brussels. And me – via the phone – live from Lijiang Studio Yunnan, rural China, lower Himalayas (Yes, flew almost directly from East-Africa to East Asia. Here right now in an absolutely fabulous residency run by Jay Brown & curated by Crystal Pascucci). Vincent and me were talking about Tshela Tendu’s pioneering Congolese modern art in the 1930’s, Tshela Tendu’s one time accidental meeting with Jan Vansina in the 1950’s. In case u missed it, here a link to the radio interview (in Dutch).
