We invite you into the sonorous playground of our SoundSculpting Sessions. Saxophone sounds - played by Arno Roesems - are caught by Patrick Housen, digitally distorted and reinstated in an immersive, evolving sound sculpture. Performers compose, improvise, react and communicate with each other. Expect atmospheric layers, enticing grooves and warm melodies.

We invite you into the sonorous playground of our SoundSculpting Sessions. Cello sounds - played by Jasmijn Lootens - are caught by Patrick Housen, digitally distorted and reinstated in an immersive, evolving sound sculpture. Performers compose, improvise, react and communicate with each other. Expect atmospheric layers, enticing grooves and warm melodies.

Feature in the Jeoren #7, Dutch Theatermagazine on Trigger Tribe
& my collaborations with visual artist Marie Van Vollenhoven.

Patrick Housen (componist & geluidsartiest) en Jasmijn Lootens (celliste) gaan aan de slag met de nieuwe klanken van cello’s uit vlas- carbon- en glasvezel!
Samen creëren zij live immersieve muzikale werelden waarin ze creëren door te experimenteren.
Patrick en Jasmijn sturen elkaar aan tijdens de performance: improvisatie & compositie gaan zo, net als de performers, een dialoog aan.

Deze mix van [cello-]klanken zorgt voor opzwepende grooves, atmosferische lagen en warme melodieën. [Teaser LOOP-e_D]

Graag nodig ik u bij deze uit op de première van deze performance op museumnacht in het Design Museum Gent, 6 december!

Hopelijk zien we u daar, kom gerust kennismaken tussen, voor of na de voorstelling.

De toegang is gratis, er zijn twee performances: om 20u en om 21u15.
Gevolgd door een [solo] live-soundsculpting DJ-set door Patrick Housen om 22u30.

Here she lies, sir

HERE SHE LIES, SIR Three female characters from three different Shakespeare plays come together under one roof; Ophelia, Lady Macbeth and Thaisa. Even though at first glance these ladies don't have so much in common, they rarely speak and they all die.

Here She Lies, Sir - A sneak peak ….

Throwback to last months premiere of Here She Lies, Sir by Mario Leko.

Writing music & designing sounds for a theater performance can be a lot of fun in and of its own, When those things are combined with performing and manipulating the music & sounds live however, you get the opportunity to add so much more to the whole show!

Here She Lies, Sir.
