JULY: In the Field 2, CRiSAP, London

I am delighted that my contribution about the method of feeding back environmental sound to its site of extraction has been accepted for this conference!

SEPTEMBER: book launch of Shores of comfort

To finish the project I did as one of the contributors to the Feest van de geest manifestation in 2024, I will translate the exhibited results into a publication. This booklet is intended as a token of gratitude to all who helped me to create these works.

NOVEMBER: Transtonations II,, Bern

In this multidisciplinary project a group of international artists brought together by curator Tanja Isbarn reflect on Astor Piazzolla's Etude No 5. After a first edition in Deventer, the Netherlands, we will gather in Bern for a collective working period in November.

DECEMBER: book/cd launch of Walking to Toonoja

A while ago I started an essay in which I try to explore the phenomenon of walking as a form of listening. Due to personal circumstances and other concerns during a corona pandemic I put that endeavour temporarily on hold. I picked up the threads again and hope to present the essay and its accompanying sound piece in 2024.

As a scientist I used to approach nature with exact measuring instruments. With the obtained data I contributed to the construction of theoretical models that describe natural phenomena. Since then I have been intrigued by the mimetic nature of those theories and other narratives with which we try to grasp the world we live in. Although mimesis comes in many different forms —from myths to models— it appears to be a fundamental aspect of human life.

As an artist I still explore my environment, now by listening and using sound and sound related tools. I listen to local sounds and (hi)stories, I work with field recordings and I appropriate mimetic phenomena from both language and music, such as onomatopoeia, scores or composition techniques like canon or fugue. With recorded material I compose sonic reflections of my surroundings that allow me to find a place within them — more than any abstract model could achieve. In that way I probe the spacetime continuum of my own existence as well as that of (our) being in general, hoping to find an answer to the underlying questions: what is place, what is presence?

And that over and over again.
