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

Concertzender


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.
On March 3, 2017,
Premiere of the film "Rietveld ruimtekunstenaar" by Bertus Mulder, March 3, 2017 . A film about the Rietveld-Schöderhuis, Utrecht and the Rietveld Pavilion at the Krüller-Möller for which he composed the music. Followed by h
is installation "On the edge of Colour and Tone" will be exhibited in Paris, Sydney, Melbourne, Buenos Aires and Kansas City. A sound art installation based on the De Stijl guide lines.

Dr. Craig Vear

Digital technology is transforming the music score: from animated and graphical scores, to mixed-media environments, to co-located telematics with distributed code; from artificial intelligence (AI), thinking machines, DIY builds and hacked-bodies, there is a broad wealth of innovation offered to musicians through Digital Score systems. Whilst these systems may share some similar properties to that of traditional paper-based scoring methods, they benefit from the usability and functionality of, say, dynamic software environments, hardware design, and networks, and by extending the relationships between creators and performers in novel and innovative ways.

The relation between art & sound, Roland Kuit & Karin Schomaker
As a sound artist Roland Kuit dealt with numberous situations how to create sound expositions.
This talk will take you with examples from the past till now.
Karin Schomaker will talk about her work interacting with Roland’s work.

R. Kuit
Aesthetics are not static. I have to become fluid - Roland Kuit

GRUIS/GRIT is an exploration of polarities in both sound and image of the solid material of stone. Resonances and deflections.
Sublimation vs Consolidation. Macro-space vs Micro-space. Roland Kuit explores the effect of impulse responses in connection with the
massive material of stone and space. How will the solidified atoms sound?
Karin Schomaker explores space, movement with layers using modular synthesis in image creation.

To Asteroid 101955 Bennu.

“Space exploration is an inherently creative activity,” said Dante Lauretta, principal investigator for OSIRIS-REx at the University of Arizona, Tucson.
“The sound-music explorations will be stored on the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, where it will stay in space for millennia.”
The OSIRIS-REx launch window opens on September 3, 2016. The launch period will last for 39 days, with a 30 minute window available each day.
OSIRIS-REx will leave Cape Canaveral, Florida on an Atlas V rocket in the 411 configuration.
Throughout the 39 days the characteristic energy (C3) is fixed at 29.3km2/s2, for a launch vehicle capability of 1955 kg.

In remembrance of Michael J. Drake

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the NASA for the extraordinary effort to be a vessel of culture and making this possible.
This is a very special honour - Roland Kuit

Universele roem voor Nederlandse componist/ Universal fame for Dutch composer

Als er buitenaards leven bestaat, is de kans groot dat de muziek van Roland Kuit het eerste is dat zij van onze aarde te horen krijgen. Het werk van de Nederlander mag van NASA de ruimte in. De componist en klankonderzoeker was al wereldberoemd in zijn vakgebied, mogelijk komt hier nu ook universele faam bij. In september vertrekt een sonde naar asteroïde Bennu, waar een chip met zijn muziek wordt achtergelaten. Kuit is van jongs af aan helemaal gek van de ruimte en vindt het helemaal top dat hij dit nu kan combineren met zijn liefde voor elektronische muziek.

The Game changers #1

Fear and bravery

"An act of bravery to break out of tonality's coffin earlier in this century. The rule-inventing and rule-breaking of that  era unblocked new musical thoughts.
Today, electronics require similar courage to approach and offer the same liberation. 
Atonalism also offered a distraction; suddenly, in order to be a composer one had to study mathematics. An equivalent distraction value comes today out of using electronics, 
particular live electronics. Fear and distraction are an important part of electronic music today. Perhaps in the future the computer will be easy to configure and use, and as 
reliable as a piano is now. If this happens, composers and performers will seek new sources of uncertainty."

Film festival bridging experimental architecture, experimental film and experimental music

Opus Caementicium, a short, abstract cinematic ode to concrète by Karin Schomaker with a Kyma generated score by Roland Kuit will be screened in New York on March 13, 2015 at EZUFFPP#6 NY— a festival bridging experimental architecture, experimental film, and experimental music at Spectrum Space in NYC.

Described as “an experience of form, light, surface, sound and movement,” Opus Caementicium is “an attempt to transcend the mere material.” For the soundtrack, Kuit uses the Slipstick synthesis module to create pulses that are frequency modulated and fed into a Resonator Bank. These reflections of sound are then Time/Frequency shaped to create a beautiful concrete sound/music environment.(eight nerve)

The ‘On and Off’ lecture explains the basics of binary synthesis in use with modular synthesis in an unconventional way, i.e. by explaining the limitless possibilities that even the ‘on’ and ‘off’ switch offers. From a 2-switch instrument to state of the art complex pattern shapers. Shaping audio by creating 4 and 8 bits pipelines and creating switch matrices of choice will offer numerous possibilities in sound design.

New Music – Crosslinks

(a)Live & (RE)turn To Zender

The starting point of the four-hour New Music / Crosslinks contribution (a)Live & (RE)turn to Zender links between different disciplines music, musicians, composers and experts who are involved in contemporary music.

The coming together of music in the form of composition, sound eruptions, noise, improvisation and soundscape (environmental music), and connecting various contemporary genres, is presented in a four-hour vortex of instant composing.

The total production is framed by sound designer Roland Kuit. Gerard Meulenberg takes care of the conversations with the guests.During the "instant composing sessions' you can listen to contributions by David Dramm, Anne Wellmer, Daniel Cross, Jasper Stadhouders, Leo Svirsky, Robert van Heumen, Ton Verhiel, members of Grey Lotus, Mark Alban Lotz and Bram Stadhouders . And there shall be composed pieces performed by Grey Lotus, Ton Verhiel and Rosanne Philippens.

16.00-20.00 hours European time.

Roland Kuit Mondrian

monads and beyond concert

The painter Piet Mondriaan (1872-1944) who, based from his ideas about so called neo-plasticism, started to build a connection with music on the one hand.
"Et quant au moyen de production du son, il sera préférable d'employer l'électricité, le magnétisme, la mécanique, car ils excluent mieux l'immixtion de l'individuel." This is what Piet Mondriaan said in his essay Le Néo-Plasticism (De Nieuwe Beelding) which was published as a brochure in late 1920 by the L'Effort Moderne in Paris. This essay was dedicated to the 'hommes futurs' — future mankind. In this essay, Mondriaan, based on an analogy with a new plastic art (painting), tries to define a new kind of music the sounds of which should ideally be produced by electric, magnetic, and mechanic (i.e. automatic) devices to avoid undesirable alterations based on individual, subjective and interpretational preference.
Mondriaan advocates a kind of music deprived of any kind of personal feelings, depth, warmth, and empathy and whose sound no longer presents the 'roundness', 'swells', 'reverberation', or other typically instrumental characteristics of a romantic idiom. The sounds should rely on a few basic tones and not be structured harmonically but rather as unbreakable units. They should be experienced as coups' — pulses. No melody, but quick sequences of primary- tones and so-called non-tones. Mondriaan imagines tone fields that are enclosed by three tones: a 'red' one, a 'yellow' one, and a 'blue' one. Based on a concept of confrontation, these fields are counterbalanced by non-tonal fields whose corners are based on a-chromatic, atonal, noises, 'black', 'grey', and 'white'. These six tones have an immediate attack and no release. Together, they constitute compositions of contrasting 'coups' (hits) whose rhythm is open and free. Mondriaan believes chat these tones or sounds need to be generated by electric devices or newly developed musical instruments; it is of prime importance, however, that they be 'fixed' unequivocally in a yet unknown way. In his text about Neo-Plasticism, he therefore talks about soulless things, such as 'l'électricité and "magnetisme' of which he later(in late 1921) said that they were ideally suited for generating tones whose 'wavelength and oscillation' remain constant for their entire duration. He also demands that those new musical instruments, whether or not they are fitted with 'électricité' and 'magnétisme', be capable of instantly switching off a tone, without 'reverberating noises' or the like. These are precisely the criteria that can be met a lot better by electric sounds than instrumental sounds. Electric tones indeed have no body, they do not linger on, and they go off in the same way as when you switch off a light bulb. They never lire and are by definition tight and stationary.(Dick Raaijmakers)

The Edge of Sound

Roland Kuit lets us experience the fringes of sound. When does sound/noise/vibration/tremor  become a composition? Starting with Pierre Henri’s composition ‘Variations pour une porte et un soupir’ of 1963, Kuit kicks the door wide open in order to let us experience some very interesting experiments and  takes us back to the essence of what  vibration is as well. Which applied electronic techniques were ‘ground-breaking’ in the past years? And which sound designers were able to translate their personal conceptions into aesthetically justified compositions?

Jose Murcia "This was a timeless and quintessential tribute to futurism and the avant-garde. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Roland's amazing contribution is one of the elements that make Electro-Music such a unique experience. Especially when you consider the fact that he and Karin travelled such a great distance to bring us this masterpiece."

Programming strategies for virtual modular synthesizers
Sonus Factory, Rome

Roland Kuit Rome

"Here in Rome, we have had the rare and precious chance to host a lecture by Roland Kuit. His long experience and knowledge of synthesizer’s programming and programming languages made this event imperdible. Theme of the lecture was, briefly, a wealth of possible sound techniques starting from the simple on/off switch and its behavior momentary or toggle; from simple alternation of state as core for digital event and audio generation, until complex sonic structures of great charm and refinement. Roland Kuit used the standard Clavia Nord Modular G2 DSP based hardware synthesizer, with a standard Behringer BRC programmable controller, nothing esoteric or denied to the masses; during the whole lecture, those present have had access to Kuit’s superior knowledge of the subject. Trained at Instituut voor Sonologie in Utrecht (Netherlands), Mr. Kuit has deeply grasped the powerful theories behind the historical 100-event generator and its implication for producing controls, audio signals and events, to their implementation in any programming environment sufficiently advanced and powerful. That lesson was a really great learning experience and cultural growth for all participants, 20 electronic musicians from Rome and hinterland, who were able to follow, step by step, in plain English, the construction of tonal and control structures of high level, powerful and exquisitely logic. The difficult made easy. Really, a great option for all of us."
