Sculptural Electronic Sound Discs (SESD)
With Tom Verbruggen, Gert Jan Prins, Gijs Gieskes and Dennis de Bel.
Innovative, complax, eclectronic, tactile
SESD is a research and production project with live event on merging the sound source (electronic circuits) and the sound carrier (vinyl) into a dynamic sound object. Innovation and Do It Yourself play a leading role in this evening program.
On the spot they will experiment with electronic circuits, eg converted consumer electronics or self-designed electronic units that are used as a tool. The medium in this case, is a self-cut master plate which prints can be made by means of liquid plastics. These two elements are combined into an active sound composition. The artists are expected to increase their ability to innovative and conceptual thinking, their affinity with the material or tactile, the Do-It-Yourself attitude, and the handling of sound as an artistic sculptural data insertion. The project can be seen as a metaphor of the in - and output we want to generate as a stage. Exchange of knowledge with the artists, DE PLAYER and the audience is central to this innovative project. DE PLAYER now has a lot of knowledge and capabilities in the (re)production of sound recordings in small runs in the tradition of vinyl / LP (cutting, molds, casting). The contribution of the invited artists is their electronic specialization, their ability to everyday electronic objects a new meaning to the often elusive output that reflects the results of their practices. The combination of this knowledge will result into physical and dynamic sound objects. During the program there will be demonstrations and ‘concerts’ and endresults will be exhibited. This all accompanied by a variation of audiovisual matters in which innovation and Do It Yourself play a leading role.
