New sound installation – try-out

On Saturday 2 November 2019 at 16:00 CET the architect Machiel Spaan and composer Rozalie Hirs present a new sound installation, which they are developing in close collaboration during their artist-in-residence at Van Doesburg House, Meudon, France. The two give a lecture, followed by a Q & A, and a reception. The public is then invited to wander through and explore the installation.

The new work is inspired by the concept of the open plattegrond (English: open floorplan) Theo Van Doesburg (1883-1931) developed for his architectural work, including his own residence at rue Infroît, Meudon, France. Spaan creates the spatial arrangement of loudspeakers and Hirs custom-synthesises new electronic sounds for the musical compositon. It is the third collaborative architecture/sound art project by Spaan and Hirs, after Curvices (2013-present), and the Listening House (2017-present). The residency is supported by the Mondriaanfonds, Theo Van Doesburg House, and STEIM.

The event is part of the ‘Open Saturday’ series at Van Doesburg House, hosted by Machiel Spaan and Rozalie Hirs, who live as artists-in-residence at Van Doesburg House from September through December 2019. The above picture shows an image of the gouache grondelement van de schilderkunst (1924-25) by Van Doesburg.
