Raumklang at Gaudeamus Festival

Zeno van den Broek and Robin Koek present Raumklang at the Gaudeamus Festival 2018.

An object in a space which cannot be seen and cannot be touched. The installation Raumklang by Zeno van den Broek and Robin Koek can only be experienced by listening: frozen sound becomes augmented architecture.

Raumklang is a project focused on creating site-specific sound in physical space. Based on acoustic features Van den Broek and Koek develop interactive binaural sound sculptures with architectonic dimensions. 

Raumklang will be presented at the Gaudeamus Festival 2018.

Friday 7th and Saturday 8th of September 2018
The Koepelzaal of Het Huis Utrecht from 12:00 till 18:00 on Friday and Saturday. 
Address: Boorstraat 107, 3513 SE Utrecht, The Netherlands.

A few years ago eno van den Broek and Robin Koek discovered their mutual fascination for spatial sound. They are developing a system which makes it possible to place an auditive sculpture in a space. In this process they are making use of the acoustic characteristics of the space and the resonance of materials within. These qualities become the essence of a site-specific composition which intertwines the virtual and physical architecture. Navigating through headphones visitors experience the spatial position and dimension of this virtual sound sculpture, which develops in time through movement. The installation presented during the 'Senses Working Overtime' during the Gaudeamus festival is a prototype, through which the artists aspire to research the experience of the first users.

During the past year Van den Broek and Koek developed the installation with kind support of the Creative Fund NL, V2_ and Steim. The Gaudeamus festival has given us the opportunity to present a prototype of the work during their ‘Senses Working Overtime’ exhibition this September.
