HKU Spectrum #1: soundscape for art exhibition

HKU Spectrum is a project concept, concerning electroacoustic compositions from Utrecht School of the Arts, in collaboration with various art forms. This concept is founded by Konstantinos Vasilakos & Augusto Meijer.

HKU Spectrum in collaboration with Fine Arts: URBAN SPECTATOR 

Augusto has created a soundscape for a temporarily art exhibition in Hilversum: “Made in Hilversum”. The concept is to create a mixture of fine art pieces being enriched by electroacoustic sounds, played back in the space. The resulting exhibition is called Urban Spectator.

The soundscape consists of various electroacoustic works which are chained after each other.
Composers:  Olivier Schreuder, Arjen Jongeneel, Jannick Oeben, Augusto Meijer.

GLOW – International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture
Eindhoven 2010 I 5th Edition I ‘(Re-)Discovering Eindhoven’

Due to the dedication of CityDynamiek Eindhoven, from November, 6th to 13th, 2010, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light.

about ‘Fenestra’:

During GLOW Galerie Van de Water and Stichting PEK, Platform Artists from Eindhoven, work together to show light art by young artists from Brabant. Jaap van den Elzen presents his light installation Fenestra for the Don Bosco Square, supported by a soundscape of Augusto Meyer. Van den Elzen uses the windows on the square and transforms them into a layered, spatial composition of light and color. The soundscape enhances the experience by reflecting appropriate materials, emotion and shapes into a world of electronic sound.
Suzanne van Rest shows her installations Space Between Thoughts and Soft Warmth of Southern air. Opening hours from 19.00 – 22.00 hrs.

Bioluminescence @ Experimentarium

Bioluminescence is an electroacoustic composition project by Augusto Meijer

The Bioluminescence piece is mainly composed for a sound&light installation exhibited at the Senses exhibition in the Experimentarium, Copenhagen. This is a great opportunity to present electroacoustic music for a young new audience! Augusto Meijer composed an electronic piece for the sound installation.

SENSES – new temporary exhibition

Are you a super smeller? A taste specialist with ‘power vision’? And why can dogs hear frequencies that you can’t? Experimentarium’s major new temporary exhibition SENSES, which is all about the amazing senses of humans and animals.

We can touch, smell, taste, see and hear the world around us. At the Senses exhibition, you get the chance to test it all and compare your senses with others – both humans and animals.

MORE INFO

The sound of Bioluminescence is captured in a wooden structure, designed by Jaap van den Elzen, who also designed an experience of Light for the Exhibition. The Bioluminescence piece is played back via 6 loudspeakers situated around the structure. People who enter this wooden structure are being surrounded by the mystical soundworld of Bioluminescence.
