CD & Bandcamp: Live at the Museum of Fine Arts PDF Print E-mail

Album cover Live at the museum of fine artsPresenting the next finished artwork: Live at the Museum of Fine Arts: released on the DATABLOEM LABEL and also available on Bandcamp! The album is the result of an edited version of the recording of the Live Set in the Museum of Fine Arts in Gent on 28th of November 2013.

 

With the very important help by Niek Cornil, Marie-Julie Dellaert, MSK Ghent, Freesound.org, Ariovaldo A. Giaretta and Dennis from DATABLOEM!


I've been asked to set up soundscapes inspired on the theme of a forest. The live performance was in the half circled central aula of the Museum between beautiful sculptures and columns.

 

Niek Cornil was present to add live video during the performance. Niek reads perfectly the music and translates this into strong video. Have a look at the You Tube page of Music For Installations to see some snippets! Also present in the room was a person working with fragrants.

Self-Imaging PDF Print E-mail

Self ImagingRacism is a quick used term nowadyas. Due to the current changes through Europe, echo's from darker times emerge back at the surface. On the other side of the spectrum, there is also a tidal current which opposes any critisizm against the current decision processes within Europe, setting these critics aside as xenophobic racism, in stead of taking them seriously. Both are very unhealthy sounds within our current European entity. The pillars of democracy are shaking. Music For Installations shared a track to support Self-Imaging.

Fortaleza Aves Video PDF Print E-mail

Picture Aves Hannes DiehlHannes Diehl asked me to work on his video project about strange bird creatures and fishes. The imagery resulted in a display on the walls of a building in Fortaleza, Brazil. The animals get some motion in the video and to support this movement, Music For Installations jumped in with field recordings and created soundfiles. The display was done during Vila das Artes during January and March 2015. The resulted video is posted on Vimeo by Hannes and can by looked at in this full article or on the Video page.

Lecture ZKM Soundart Curating PDF Print E-mail

It's a huge discussion that finally takes places into the world of art. What is the position of a curator in the evolving world with all its new technologies? I've been wondering a long time what the criteria exactly are for a curator involved in sound art. And why is sound art so far away in museums sometimes?

 

With SoundArtCuration a platform for discussion is created. By lectures and seminars there will be a focus on the methodologies, histories, theories and practices of sound art curating.

 

During the seminar at the ZKM (Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie) Karlsruhe, Music For Installations will bring a lecture about the position of an artist in this story. (19/21-08)

Melancholia Video PDF Print E-mail

Self ImagingWith Melancholia Lars Von Trier made a very intense movie about fear and depression. Von Trier found a way to translate these very troubled emotional difficulities, from which he struggles himself, through this incredible motion picture. This track is a tribute to Melancholia in all its intensity. It's a reflection and translation of these emotions of which nobody dares to speak. Now, emotional translation of anxiety and depression, does that ring any bell? The video is compiled by Niek Cornil. Niek has a great way to translate the sound into image.

Soundscape Live - Museum Gent PDF Print E-mail

Image of the Museum of Fine Arts Gent

Thursday night 28/11 is the Night of the Museum at the Museum of Fine Arts in Gent. The theme is forest. I've been asked to set up a soundscape inspired by that time. That is certainly something to look forward to. The soundscape will be played along with a person who works with fragrants. This will be a nice combination of both senses that will be triggered. For this project, I'll create new scapes and drones hence following my motto on top of this site:
