The festival SURROUND! is a mix of concerts and installations where the listener is surrounded by sound and becomes part of the musical interaction.
From Wednesday November 7 till Sunday November 11 @ Concertgebouw Brugge.
DIORAMATIZED #02, part of my PhD research, is one of the installations in this festival.
DIORAMATIZED #02 had its premiere last year @ M Museum Leuven. The picture above shows an installation view at the museum.
I’m curious how the installation is perceived by visitors of the festival, a much more pronounced group I’m sure.
Sunday November 11 the festival wraps up with a happening:
“Sound bursts out at you from every corner of the Concertgebouw. Musicians, composers and sound installations take over literally every inch, if not physically/materially, then certainly with music.”
This photo-selection documents the process of setting up the installion for the premiere of MULTIPLE voice/vision – BACH at AMUZ 1 october 2011.
It took 3 (very) long days, plus on the fourth day – saturday oct 1 – final finetuning and a general rehearsal with the musicians before the concerts in the evening.
Somebody was so nice and ‘brave’ to upload this 36-layer video to YouTube:
I made this single-screen video In 1995 as a by-product from a multiscreen concert/performance with the Hilliard Ensemble at the Basiliek of Koekelberg.
It was the first full digital production made at the VRT, at that time named BRTN, and it was broadcast in the programme about arts & culture ‘Vuurvogel’.
I'm a lecturer and researcher at the MAD-faculty, C-mine Genk, Belgium. This blog documents my PhD research, where I explore the possibilies of the multiple in audiovisual media. My practice based arts research shows an evolution towards installation-based works.
