Omschrijving werk

ntrigued by the phenomena and history of optical sound, Mariska de Groot [1982, NL] makes and performs comprehensive analog light-to-sound instruments and installations which explore this principle in new ways. Her work often has a reference to media inventions from the past, with which she aims to excite a multi-sensorial and phenomenological experiences in light, sound, movement and space. Mariska studied graphic design BA at ArtEZ Arnhem [2000-2005] and received her masters diploma at the ArtScience interfaculty in 2012. She lives and works in The Hague [NL] and is boardmember of iii (intrument inventors initiative). In 2009/2010 Mariska received a Startstipendium from Fonds BKVB. In 2012 she won the BNG Workspace12 Projectprice and in 2014 she won the O68 Price for German/Dutch artists. For 2016/2017 she was granted with the Talent development grant from Creative Industries. The different works related to the optical sound project featured at several national and international events like STEIM [NL], Ars Electronica [A], Lab30 [DE], NK [DE], Atonal [DE], Oddstream Festival [NL], Fiber Festival [NL], TodaysArt [NL], Shiny Toys [DE], NCCA Moscow [RUS], NCCA Arsenal [RUS], Centras [LI], Glow [NL], HAFF [NL], Go Short [NL], CTM [DE], STRP [NL], for IFFR in Worm [NL], Atelier Nord [NO], Eye Filminstituut Amsterdam [NL], Mirage Festival [F], ADE [NL], Spektrum Berlin [DE], Fort Process [GB], NIME Londen [GB].

Optical Sound Orchestra
Titel Optical Sound Orchestra
Jaartal 2017
Omschrijving Don’t tell the projectionist the projector can make music! The 16mm projector is an electronic instrument not particularly known for its musical history. Within the history of expanded cinema many artists worked with the projector as instrument, but this project uses a whole orchestra of these machines! The filmprojector is a noisy apparatus that projects the image of film and uses a second light to project optical sound. For the Optical Sound Orchestra, Mariska de Groot created a piece where the rattling apparatus functions as a musical instrument and the projectionists serve as musicians. Slowed down and amplified, you experience the procedure of the projector being put into operation. An orchestra of six performers and twelve instruments brings an ode to the rhythm and richness of sounds behind cinema. For this composition De Groot investigated the characteristics of sound the different types of projectors carry, their original rattling, the noises gathered through the years and the hidden sounds like electromagnetic fields. The different sounds and rhythms are printed on film and orchestrated in combination with invented live techniques to play the 16mm projector as an instrument. http://www.mariskadegroot.com/projects/optical-sound-orchestra/

Omschrijving A project by Lars Kynde and Mariska de Groot for the Elsinore Girls Marching Band, performed in the Danish Museum of Science and Technology. A carefully designed spinning tonewheel projects on the floor and forms the instrument that 30 girls of the marching band play together. Each holding a light-to-sound transducer in the one hand and a speaker in the other creating different sound sculptures depending on the movement they make and the patterns they position.

Titel LFS1
Jaartal 2015
Omschrijving Installation, 2015, in collaboration with Dieter Vandoren – LFS1 is an environment in which visitors physically interfere with analogue generative processes, creating audible and visible patterns. The space is filled with fog. A large number of light to sound modules are arranged in coherent configurations in space. A smaller number of directional light sources are arranged in-between, and rotate around their axis. Light beams form structures, sound waves interfere. The space scans the scanning visitor. Visitors navigating in this misty landscape, interrupt with their shadows the natural state of the field and cause interruptions in the audio signals so that new changing rhythmic patterns emerge. Several visitors participating in this multi-sensory space creates a collective interaction, while the individual physical immersion stimulates a synaesthetic experience. http://www.mariskadegroot.com/projects/lfs1-a-lightfield-synthesis/

Nibiru
Titel Nibiru
Jaartal 2015
Omschrijving If a simple, unstable human handmade apparatus made of scratch materials explains cosmos, then maybe the organisation of space is a result of drunken gods dropping stars and planets as it were confetti? No one ever discovered Nibiru – ‘Planet of crossing’- the ninth planet that passes our solar system ones in a 3000 years. During the performance I intend to track its trace and shape. Nibiru is an analogue and mechanical performative installation wherein simple rythmical body movements activates a squeaky pendulum drawing machine, that on its turn creates complex mathematical images. Noises of resistance are amplified and sound patterns are created by swinging speakers that scan the changing projected geometric line image. The patterns of light and sound refer often to the positions of the planets and provoke a desire for cosmic understanding of the organisation of space. https://vimeo.com/164528364

CineChine
Titel CineChine
Jaartal 2012
Omschrijving 2012-2016 Tucked deep in the cinematic apparatus light projections of rapidly rushing graphic patterns are transformed into sound vibrations. In ‘CineChine’ you experience in physical proportions the phenomenon optical sound – an invention of the 1920’s applied in celluloid and synthesizers – where light and sound are a similar. Objects that remind of a disassembled movie machine are positioned in the room. Beams of light shoot through rotating disks, projecting a composition of dynamic black and white, hard edged forms that find a direct antecedent in the experiments with sound on film carried out by the Russian avant-garde in the late 1920s. The changing light frequenties are picked up by light sensitive speakers and transformed into sound. Soon it is clear that the tones you hear are one and the same with the light that you see. All light is potential sound. The transdisciplinary composition of ‘CineChine’ treats elements of cinematography from the viewpoint of the projector. The perspective of time&rhythm and light&sound are based on projection, shutter speed and rhythm of the machine. For every exhibition a new side-specific composition is made. https://vimeo.com/149665162

Titel murmur~singing
Jaartal 2014
Omschrijving In murmur ~ singing Yolanda Uriz and Mariska de Groot perform with feedback between light and sound, using self-made analogue equipment to create liquid projections and low frequency vibrations that engulf the audience. Murmuring sounds become storms, reflected through hypnotic, morphing images of light on vibrating water.

Titel Shadow Puppet?
Jaartal 2013
Omschrijving http://mariskadegroot.com/projects/shadow-puppet/ Shadow Puppet? presents an interplay of embodied performance and analog machinery that gives rise to an engulfing play of light, shadow and raw optical sound. Two performers – one behind the machines and one in the spotlights – play this light-to-sound instrument in a dynamic tension of attraction and repulsion. It never gets quite clear who is conducting who…

Titel Lumisonic Rotera
Jaartal 2012
Omschrijving http://vimeo.com/43737405 Rediscovering optical sound - an invention of the 1920s originating in film and employed in early synthesizers, Mariska de Groot provides the technology with a life of it’s own creating instruments that openly reveal their functioning. 'Quadtone - lumisonic rotera' is a mesmerizing light-is-sound projection performance in space. Graphical patterned wheels are coding a beam of light, which portable light-sensitive speakers convert into audible frequencies. All leftover light is visual sound.
