MULTIPLE voice/vision @ Bach Academie 2014

Concertgebouw Brugge has a tradition of a yearly Bach-festival;  BACH ACADEMIE BRUGGE. My installation MULTIPLE voice/vision is part of this year’s edition, that runs from thursday January 30 till sunday February 2. I decided to limit the audiovisual materials to only the Ricercar a 6 from Johann Sebastian Bach’s  Musikalisches Opfer (BWV 1079), performed by Roel Dieltiens and Ensemble Explorations. MULTIPLE voice/vision is permanently on display during the mini festival, so don’t miss this opportunity to spatially experience Bach’s Ricercar a 6 between the series of live concerts. At a previous exhibition of MULTIPLE voice/vision I made a time-lapse recording…

The Noises of Art – Sept. 2013

In september I was in Aberystwyth, Wales for The Noises of Art conference. The theme of the conference was situated on the intersection of “visual art and aural modes of creative practice”.  As my installations MULTIPLE voice/vision and DIORAMATIZED #02 both work exactly on that intersection – or the friction – between the visual and the auditive, this promised to be a very interesting conference. I sent in the proposal  The framing function of the body – a phenomenological inquiry for the session themed embodied sound. Its content was an iteration and further elaboration of the presentation I gave in…

This took place in the context of SeminArt, a cross-association seminar aimed at doctoral researchers in the visual arts.” I focussed on how friction functions  as a trigger for embodied perception in my installation MULTIPLE voice vision. A description of my talk: In his exploration of…

Cahier MULTIPLE voice/vision – 2013

End of January, the cahier I edited and wrote documenting the research project MULTIPLE voice/vision appeared. A preview of the first part of the cahier is available as pdf download at Acco, the publisher. This is the ‘teaser’ I wrote for the back cover of the publication: This cahier documents how the experimental inquiry of the interaction between audiovisual form and musical polyphony gave the research project MULTIPLE voice/vision its specific form. The articles try to shed light on some of the subtopics of this inquiry: how the multilayered texture of polyphony is mapped to multiple audiovisual elements in a…
