Recording Heleen Van Haegenborgh and Gudrún Oskardottir in Concertgebouw Brugge (above)

2 scenographies for exhibitions: Anouk De Clercq At CC Strombeek and Hotel Beethoven at Bozar Brussels.for both exhibitions I started out with improvements on the acoustics. Tailor-made solutions: spatialisation on 'One' from Anouk De Clercq, Bone-conducting and unique recording/reproduction system for historical piano's in collaboration with pianomaker Chris Maene.

Beste allen,

 

Het experiment met de opnames en de klankreproductie vanuit de historische piano’s is vandaag bijzonder geslaagd.

Deze techniek om de diversiteit van de instrumenten aan een breed publiek te laten horen zal zeker een meerwaarde voor de tentoonstelling zijn.

Bijzondere dank voor het vertrouwen,

 

Chris Maene

April 2019  the renewed bird department of 'De Wereld van Kina' in Ghent Belgium. 20 channel sound, partly interactive and modular. Room length 51m. First I ordered better acoustics. Speakers are from B&W, Aevox, and custom bipolar models.

Many hours of field recording. Early wake-ups on cold days, waiting in the woods for the break of day. Many hours of studio recordings with some of Flanders finest actors...

 

Helga Humming by Anouk De Clercq

The polyphonic music made by Vessel, with the voice from Helga Davis is spatialised over 10 channels taking into account the reverb and asymmetries of the exhibition space: BOZAR in Brussels.

Humming is something intimate, close., warm.

Helga Humming became soundwise an immersive experience which reflect that feeling.
