Earlier this year I participated in "Bru(i)t" in the Bogardenkapel in Bruges. This was a group exhibition about "noise", curated by Jacky Van Landschoot. I presented three new works. "I am lying under a glass bell, guided by voice activation", "Late & See" and "Salt Shake City Limits". Together, these works formed a triptych on inside and outside listening and noise.
'Traces of song' is an installation by Inge van den Kroonenberg. ATS helped in the conceptual & technical realisation of the project.
Diameter 12,4 is a collaborative effort of Ief Spincemaille (installation, concept), Kurt d'Haeseleer (video) and Jürgen De Blonde (sound). The installation consists of a slowly rotating screen onto which both sound and image are projected. Due to the rotation of the concave/convex screen, the listener/spectator can experience strange shifts in the spatial experience of the sound due to the interaction of phases in sound and a focal point that is constantly changing. An entire rotation lasts 12 minutes and 40 seconds.
The installation can be visited as part of a larger exhibition un|settled until 11/11/18. Please have a listen over here,
"Voelstoel" was commissioned by Concertgebouw Brugge. Their question was plain and simple: "Can you make a kind of chair that makes sound "feelable". My answer was, of course: "Yes!"
I got in touch with Ward Delbeke, whom I already knew as a former neighbour, someone I bumped into on a regular basis and, above all, a furniture maker of a special kind! He was to be my partner in crime. Ward loves working with triangles, as you can see.
I knew I wanted to work with transducers and exciters, that I wanted them to be split up in different frequency zones and that I wanted those zones to spread out over the installation. During that first meeting we quickly came to this rough idea of an abstract shaped kind of chair.
Pretty soon Ward came up with a bunch of sketches, I made up my technical plan and mixed that all into a nice presentation for the people at Concertgebouw Brugge. We had a deal!
Well, some months, a prototype and hours of testing later, here it is! We are very proud to present our "Voelstoel", or our "Vibrating Soundscape".
