Klanksluis (SoundLock)

Klanksluis (SoundLock)

Playing tracks by

(No artist), Michel Redolfi, Austere, Max Corbacho, Steve Reich and more.


In 2001, I was invited to contribute two sound installations to the location project called Polderlicht in Amsterdam. This is the first one: "Klanksluis" (SoundLock, as in 'Airlock').
The other one is "Eindpunt (End of the Line)" (which will be published here also).

It was played continuously in the Beyersweg: one side filled with green bushes covering an old school building (now vanished), the other side stone brick walls.Multiple speakers were located over the full length of the street, hiding in the bushes. Everyone entering the Area had to pass the 'soundlock' (hence the name 'Klanksluis').

Mixing and merging this music with more acoustical passages, like Gorecki composition, the trumpet of Nils Petter Molvaer, or the accordeon of Calexico, these mixes offer new emotional intensity, different compared to the original recordings.
