Proof of Concept: Collective Signal

Tuesday 05 June 2018 / 20:30 / Intro, Maastricht

Currently, every first Monday of each month the 4300 air raid sirens of The Netherlands are tested loudly. They have been scheduled for decommissioning by 2020; too expensive, old fashioned. Angela de Weijer is working on a swansong for this system, which is to be performed nationwide on a predetermined moment in the near future.

In June she will present the first version of the composition. This will not yet be played through sirens, but is going to give a fair impression of the possibilities. Come and listen to the last song for the biggest available instrument!

Prof. Dr. Karin Bijsterveld (Maastricht University)  will give a brief explanation about her planned research into the history of sirens.

Angela de Weijer is a sound artist. She composes for imagination and creates multidisciplinary experiences which stretch the boundaries of perception, embracing the extremes of the audible spectrum.
