UNHEARD VOICES (2018 - ) is an instrument consisting of seasponges, water and electronic circuits, used in Gaia-Resonance, a collaboration with Dewi de Vree. Unheard Voices refers to the amplification of hidden (electrical) signals (making them audible) triggered by seasponges, the voice of nature, we are neglecting as well. I love to play with paradoxes like water and electricity and nature versus technology. This instrument can be played alone as well as in the collaboration.

THE SHOUTING SAW AND THE THREE SPONGES (2018-) is an in-between instrument, the prototype of Unheard Voices, although it can be played separately. In this set-up I am hitting a big white tree-saw with different tools to let it vibrate and in the meantime I am squeezing with my feet little sponges drowned in water, to control variable input resistances of a self-built synth-like circuit. In this way I am  combining extremes of the spectrum, physical / electrical, big/small, water/electricity sponge / saw (litterally) and in concept: nature/technology, sponge/saw, female/male, violence/sensitivity.

DROPS ON HOT METAL PLATES (2015 2016) : a prototype for a new Soundsculpture, based on the sound of waterdrops falling on hot metal surfaces. The first set-up has been presented during November Music 2015 in Den Bosch. This project is funded by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.



SOUND-CASE (2014-2015): This instrument consist of an empty vinyl-case filled with electronics. Here for the first time I am experimenting with making artistic choices based on pure and authentic sounds. In this process I am not doing any sound technical concessions for the purpose of their visual appearance.



SPLASHBOX (2012-2014): This underwater set-up covers a large part of the aural spectrum. Using bare frequencies the water is literally put in motion and made audible by using an underwater microphone. By adding objects during this wet dance and changing the basic frequencies I create a live composition.

RAUSCHMASCHINE (2010-2012): Performance with an archive Cupboard, using it as an instrument and playing with the vibration of several metal objects in the different drawers and the sound of the unit itself.

NOISE-LAB (2007-2009): Theatrical performance wit sound-experiments working with resonance of a spring and a heather. Using the loudspeaker as intrument.

PNEUMA-TIX (2005-2006): Living pneumatic noise-sculpture with own optics

KRANKENHAUS (2004): Pneumatic Installation with light-sensors

NOISEPIJP (2003): Noise-Tube with moving image

LAWAAJ-MASJIEN (2002): Pick-up-needle on a loudspeaker, instrument based on feedback

BOSVOGEL (2001): Electronic instrument based on little electric circuits, sounds like an electric bird
