Relay Sounds 0.2

This weekend I present a new work in development, a draft. This will be in my studio as part of the ‘Cultuur Route Kralingen Crooswijk.
Relay Sounds 0.2 is an experiment in which I use the sounds that relay switches make. These switches are used in electronics to switch a high-power device with low power. I use the sound the relay makes while switching, and amplify it with simple resonance boxes like drinking cups. By using many of these relay switches and the composition that stir these switches, a spacial sound experience is created.
I use this moment not only for my own experiment, but I’m also curious for your comments.

I welcome you!

Saturday and Sunday, October 9th and 10th, 12-17 hrs, Pootstraat 43, Rotterdam.

Relay Sounds 0.1

Relay Sounds is the title of my new work. Version 0.1 means that i’m experimenting right now. Five relays are used not to switch things, but to make sound. The switching of these mechanical relays make certain sounds that I can imagine combine well as an auditive work.

So Relays Sounds 0.1 is the first version. Next Saturday and Sunday (October 9th-10th, 12-17 hrs) i will present version 0.2 in our studio (Pootstraat 43, Rotterdam), as part of the atelier-route Kralingen krooswijk.

Mixing Cities streaming set Amsterdam

In Amsterdam the microphones of “stream5” are glued at the building of STEIM, the studio for electro-instrumental music. STEIM is in the center of Amsterdam, with a canal in front and surrounded by appartements and a primary school close by.
