Daniel Maalman will also give an experimental audiovisual presentation at this event. Pictured are some of his ceramic objects. He is experimenting on those objects at the moment at Steim. Read the introduction Daniel wrote below!

"My name is Daniel Maalman and I am an artist who generally works with sound in the broadest possible spectrum. I come from a visual art background but my passion lies in working with the sense of hearing. Also I have been making electronic music for many years. Sometimes the output of my work is music, sometimes a composition that would be defined by the word ‘sound’ rather than ‘music’. Some of my composiitons exist only as temporary site-specific installations.

With my Lost & Found Orchestra installations I turn locations, buildings and objects into musical compositions. Every edition is a new location. I start by finding sounds that are hidden under the surface of materials by tapping on the objects, while amplifying them with microphones.
The tapping is done by little machines (like electro-magnetic solenoids or small motors) that I control from my computer, which functions as the conductor. So the composition is being generated ‘live’, in real-time, like with an actual orchestra. These sound experiences only exist temporarily and sound different every edition. For a certain period of time, the audience can experience the composition, walking around in it, while the room around them is being played. Because the little machines all have a small light, the audience can find easily where which sound is generated. The sound and lights together create an audiovisual experience."

In collaboration with: Broedplaats ACTA of Urban Resort and RADION. After the program RADION café will be open for drinks and dinner.

This evening is in English.
