Erik Nerinckx captures the immense, turbulent natural force of the sea in an all-encompassing recording made at the coast. Sixteen speakers replay its murmur, rustle and roar as a massive wall of sound.
Artist duo VOID visualise the sounds of the sea. With SARA – inspired by a 19th century technique that recorded sound as visual squiggles – they make its water visible.
Stijn Demeulenaere goes out to sea and brings us a poetic exploration that voices the unseen, polluted and disrupted (sound) landscape beneath the waves.
What is sound? What is this phenomenon we can’t see but that touches us?
These where the starting questions that made sound artist Els Viaene have a deeper look at the visual manifestations of sound.
The artist’s research and experimentation investigates sound at its source, the moment it is shaped. In this project she approaches sound as a physical phenomenon: a vibration, a wave, a variation in air pressure.
Her quest to understand sound brings her to other worlds and other times. The result is a performance and installation in which science, sound and sculpture meet.
Former Overtoon research resident artist Vica Pacheco creates a sonic environment during 3 sound performances at Beursschouwburg.
Animacy or A breath manifest is a series of sound performances consisting in playing and amplifying the sound sculptures, looping and sampling them directly, using granular synthesis and digital sound effects to create an improvised composition, a sonic environment in formation. The importance of emphasising the idea of breathing came naturally when she experimented with it in her home studio. The instruments breathe; they breathe in while swinging to one side and they sing while exhaling while swinging to the other side.
This is the fifth edition of Beyond Music, a laboratory for sound performances. More artists perform this evening: Jessica Ekomane and Mario de Vega who is currently an Overtoon resident within our Oscillations program.
