Radboud Mens is a sound-artist from Amsterdam whose work is rooted in
and continues to develop within the broadest definition of contemporary
music. While his interest in the physical effects of sound on the body
gave him a preference for noise in his early work, his later music has
contributed to the development of minimal-techno, glitch and
experimental dub. Mens uses electronic technology to render audible
microscopic sound processes. His sound-world is in a constant state of
spatial and temporal flux, and incorporates found sound and influences
from the media.
Radboud Mens and Bas Van Koolwijk have been exploring the interaction
between image and sound, since 2000. Their performances take shape as
they take place, and a rehearsal to them is primarily an investigation
into how digital imagery and sound language influence each other. Van
Koolwijk applies video in order to work with abstract images as if he is
waging a war on them. Mens mixes electronic signals and minimal techno
in intoxicating, dub oriented pieces.
