Raumklang at Muziekgebouw

Raumklang will premiere at the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam on 28th October 2021, as part of Fiber2021.

The site-specific Augmented Reality sound installation Raumklang by artists Zeno van den Broek and Robin Koek will premiere in the context of the three-day arts and music programme FIBER 2021. The première takes in collaboration with Fiber's partner The Rest Is Noise (Muziekgebouw) and with special mention of Raumklang’s co-producer and long-time supporter V2_, Lab for the Unstable Media.

Raumklang (2021) is an art installation focused on the creation of a location-specific sound architecture. The immaterial sculpture allows visitors to experience a 4-dimensional sound object in a location which they can only perceive through hearing. Through precise and innovative tracking technology, custom-built by the artists for this project, visitors are able to explore this sonic environment, providing a real-time augmented sonic intensification of the site. High-definition spatialized sound qualities activate visitors’ sense of curiosity and lead them to explore the spatial features and dynamics of a place.

Each Raumklang installation is unique and site-specific: the process analyses the architectural characteristics of the exhibition space in a technological and perceptual manner, resulting in a custom binaural interactive sound architecture which distills the acoustic features of the location.

The object could be seen as an acoustic distillation of the Atrium, Muziekgebouw’s immensely high hall, and its direct environment with trains, ships and a buzzing city. The work fully engages with the potential of sound, acoustics and interaction in order to move beyond the visual monopoly on architectural experience.

Van den Broek and Koek have been developing Raumklang for the past four years, with multiple residencies and tryouts at V2_ (Rotterdam) and a trial at The Grey Space (The Hague). This exhibition at the Muziekgebouw is the official premiere of this innovative way of experiencing art in time and space.

Raumklang is co-produced by V2_, Lab for the Unstable Media. Raumklang is supported by V2_, Lab for the Unstable Media, Creative Fund NL, Gerrard Street and STEIM.

Première: Thursday October 28
16:00 – 17:30h
Muziekgebouw (Atrium) Amsterdam
