This Singing of Tongues (2013) on SoundCloud

A new addition on SoundCloud: This Singing of Tongues (2013) by Rozalie Hirs, a song from her album Curvices and the nineteenth poem from her poetry book Curvices and Musicles (Uitgeverij Vleugels, Bleiswijk, 2013).

The track is also features in her poetry and music installation Curvices, commissioned by Klankenbos/Sound Forest, Neerpelt, Belgium: Curvices (2013) is a digital application, a virtual poetry and sound installation for cell phones, that accompanies you on your walk through the museum park Klankenbos/ Sound Forest in Neerpelt, Belgium. By changing location you codetermine the development of the music and the poetry. Where are you? What do you hear? Is it indigenous birds that are singing in the forest or do you hear birds from Portugal through your cell phone? Is it a siren you hear or is it the wind? By exploring the terrain you probe sounds and words, you make a journey through the forest, around the world, in as many steps as you like.

The forest has been divided into ten zones, virtual spaces, each with their own composition and animation, that have been composed, designed, and programmed, respectively by Hirs, Cox & Grusenmeyer and Yvan Vander Sanden. The soundapp Curvices registers your location through the GPS on your cell phone or tablet. If you enter a new zone, the corresponding composition sounds and the animation becomes visible. If you are between zones, you hear a recognizable interlude full of birds and sparkling overtones.
