DORDTYART ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

From May until the end of July I have worked in DordtYart as one of their Artists in Residence. During this working period I have experimented and developed some new instruments, composition display methods, I have organised an instrument building workshop and during the finissage I have performed a new (adaptation of) a sound-piece with visuals by Alex van Giersbergen (wtf0.nl).

COMPONENT @ THIRD SPACE

❑ ❑ ❑ - WORKSHOP @ THIRD SPACE

During this 2 hour workshop we built a very simple sound device that reacts to light. The schematic is based on a design by the Japanese physician Leo Esaki and consists of a transistor, light-sensor (LDR), capacitor, speaker and power source. We will construct this simple oscillator by attaching electronic components with screw-terminals.

5. an evening to bring your own instruments so we can have a jam session together

During the past two years Marloes van Son has worked on the Devices-project, which consists of experimental instrument design, composition through the development of visual scores, workshops and audiovisual performances.

COMPONENT presents the current state of the Devices-project at Third Space. Next to the exhibition element it includes an audiovisual performance by ALOES (sound: Marloes van Son, visuals: Alex van Giersbergen), a workshop and a ‘bring your own instrument’ - evening.

ALOES @ ÄÄNIAALTO III 8.3.2018

ALOES is a newly formed audiovisual project by Alex van Giersbergen and Marloes van Son. Alex is a new media artist, who uses programming to create computer- and electronic-based works. Marloes is an experimental instrument builder, sound artist and composer. With ALOES they combine efforts to present atmospheric soundscapes with melodic elements which interact with particle based visuals.
