Landscapes of a Voice - Roland Kuit


Triptych of the De Stijl Part II - De Stijl and the Poetry of Sound


In times of great changes this work of sound art as a tribute to the experimental poetry. In 1920, Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondrian and Antony Kok formulated their ideas in the style in a manifesto about the literature: the naturalistic clichés which provided by the produced dramatic word movies and books, per meter and per pound, contain nothing of the new rules of their lives. Those new rules they would create themselves.

The De Stijl connection: Dick Raaijmakers - Piet Mondrian - Roland Kuit

The connection

Concertzender Electronic Frequencies:
Three broadcasts in which abstraction, DADA and sound art will transform the speaker boxes at home to autonomous sound sculptures.

The Dutch composer Jacob van Domselaer (1890-1963) together, with Piet Mondrian, researched the creation of a new form of music.
Verticality, standing sound structures in which melody free and quiet. This research culminated as “Proeven van Stijlkunst” for piano. (1913-1916).
The tone was set.
Between 1950 and 1955, the Belgian composer and founder of the musical serialism Karel Goeyvaerts, managed to broaden this principle of the standing sound structures. Goeyvaerts stacked electronic created sinus tones on each other as sound objects.
CAHIER-M published by the Dutch composer Dick Raaijmaker (2000) is about the morphology of electric sound. This inherently single-layered type of sound is discussed in the light of 'neo-plastic' music as suggested by the painter Piet Mondriaan in the 1920's. He advocated a kind of music that consisted of single-layered, 'single-colour' electric sounds.

Between 2010 and 2013 constructed the Dutch composer Roland Emile Kuit virtual electronic systems where spectral chaos was converted to serial sound constellations. Sounds that are captured at the atomic level to their brought back to square trajectories. Hereafter broken down and reduced to the elementary

Triptych of the De Stijl movement

Roland Kuit is a creative expert in the De Stijl movement and electronic music. First his research in the Mondrian house: Monads and Beyond.
Roland Kuit researched in this context the relationship between sound and space. Karin Schomaker was the first artist researching Mondrian and movement. This area of tension between sounds and images got its world premiere as "Monads and Beyond" at the Mondriaanhuis in Amersfoort. (House of birth of Piet Mondrian). November 1, 2013. Premiere of the film "Rietveld ruimtekunstenaar" by Bertus Mulder, March 3, 2017 .
