Angela de Weijer – 1’26”
1’26” is a special performance, work in progress and first milestone en route to composing a swan song for the decommissioning of the air raid siren system of the Netherlands in 2020.
Although the sirens still sound for testing every first Monday of the month, innovation is catching up with them. De Weijer will show a siren and various steps in the process towards the composition. The public will have the opportunity to experience the monthly test from up close.
Please note: if you are sensitive to sound pressure it is not advisable to attend this performance.
Hearing protection will be provided.
