Speel doos speel!

Drie duo’s improviseren met door GIST-lid Dion Nijland gecomponeerde muziek voor speeldoosjes en met elkaar. De hypercreatieve geesten Jan Schellink en Lucas Kloosterboer ontmoeten elkaar deze avond voor het eerst, omringd door een keur aan instrumenten. Zangeres Rianne Wilbers en multi-instrumentalist Jornt Duyx springen van funky bass grooves met klassieke zanglijnen naar synthesizer soundscapes met experimentele gekte. De eerste duo-ontmoeting van de twee jongste GIST-leden Gemma Luz Bosch (piano) en Ruben Drenth (trompet) wordt gekarakteriseerd door nieuwsgierigheid naar klank, ruimte en improvisatie. Drie duo’s, die in een bloedstollende finale op de huid worden gezeten door diverse live gedraaide speeldoosjes.


Aircilla & Ensemble Kaer – Moving Air

In Moving Air the audience is immersed in sound waves emanating from a kinetic sound installation and an acoustic ensemble. With extended techniques the musicians extract different timbres, tone colours and textures from their instruments as well as from the vibrating sound installation Aircilla. An overwhelming and soothing experience.

The sound installation Aircilla is a collaboration between sound artist Gemma Luz Bosch and installation maker Jurriaan de Vos. Ceramic sound objects hang from ropes and are set in motion by a large steel mechanism. The handmade sound objects swing and collide with each other, creating their own soundscape. Aircilla can be seen in Museum Speelklok from 1 July to 31 October, but will only be performed live during Gaudeamus in collaboration with Ensemble Kaer.

PERFORMERS

Gemma Luz Bosch – (prepared) piano and composition

Aircilla is a swarm of ceramic sound objects that are hanging on ropes and are put into motion by a big mechanism. The handmade and therefore unique sound objects swing and collide with each other, creating sound and timbres in their own way. With Aircilla we want to immerse the audience in a moving landscape.

You can experience Aircilla from 1 July until 31 October at Museum Speelklok in Utrecht, the Netherlands!
