Light Bulb

Light Bulb

August 2015

Attic of the old Aloysius College

Hilversum

I built a light bulb installation for a piece of music: Sonata for solo cello, first part, "Dialogo", by György Ligeti. The light bulbs respond to the sound of my cello. Using a foot pedal I can control which lights turn on. This installation is inspired by earlier works by Jur de Vries, Boris Bezemer and Gerjan Piksen. The story goes that Ligeti wrote this piece for a cellist whom he had a huge crush on. The low melodies on the lowest string of the cello represent a shy man asking questions. The high melodies on the highest string represent the woman, less shy, and completely in the dark as to what the man is trying to ask. The cello player actually never performed Ligeti's piece. She probably didn't understand it was a declaration of love...

Compagnie Theater

Amsterdam

During the Amsterdam Dance Event 2014, there was an awesome sound installation in the Compagnie theater. This installation could produce 'sound objects' anywhere in the room. Invisible, shapes of sound in the room that could even move around. Together with a few dozen sound nerds from across the world, I got to play around with this installation for an entire weekend. On Sunday afternoon, an audience was invited to experience and listen to our experiments. I built a planetary system out of sound (the Solar Sound System) together with Serafino di Rosario and Andrès Andrade. Every planet had one tone. The planets revolved around each other and together formed a scale (C major). Harmonies were created when two planets passed each other. We could also connect little cello melodies to the various planets. In this film clip, all the sound experiments with the installation are discussed.

Grachtenfestival and
Festival over het IJ

Amsterdam

The Grachtenfestival and Festival over het IJ organised a theater route in the summer of 2014. Young theater producers and musicians created four small performances. I conceived and programmed an app that visitors could listen to when they walked from one show to the next. The app detects your exact location and adapts music and soundscapes to where you are. For example, when you walked past a children's playground, you'd hear the noise of children playing and shouting. And when you'd walk past an iron fence, you'd hear a wooden stick rattling against the bars. You'd also hear excerpts from interviews with residents of Amsterdam-Noord and stories about the neighbourhood, interspersed with pieces of music. The image above is a screenshot of the app. The red line is the path that the visitors walked, and the translucently colored areas represent the various sounds and stories they encountered along the way.
