Program Notes

Listening to the (Future) Landscape is a quadraphonic, live-coded sound performance, incorporating found natural objects, local environmental recordings and voice in an immersive listening space evocative of our ecological future. The artist has collected objects and recordings from the local landscape — the city of Utrecht — which become the primary instruments in the piece. With these artifacts, the artist builds a multi-layered, virtual space that exists in parallel with — and in tension with — the physical environment.
