Omschrijving werk

Spanning four decades, I have developped hundreds of sound art projects in over seventy countries all over the world. My work is based on a profound listening approach and a ‘sculptural-like’ perspecive on the work with enviornmental sound matter (from original environmental recordings). Field work, site-specific work and the development of extensive projects in wilderness and urban environments are an essential part of my artistic practice. All of this manifests and materialzes in a wide variety of formats and presentations, ranging from immersive sound installations and live performances to audio pieces published in all kinds of audio and audio-visual formats, as well as sound art creations for film and contemporary dance, for example. Moving away from simplistic representational approaches in the work with sound environmental material, my creative perspective aims at digging much deeper into the mythical, the profound, the experiential and the phenomenological of the sonic substance of a place.
