Museum EICAS: UKRAINE SONIC SPACE - Roland Emile Kuit



Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February 2022. The invasion was internationally condemned as an act of aggression by the United Nations. 

War in Ukraine. The unthinkable is happening in Europe: the Lives of millions of people are affected directly or indirectly by this war on a global scale. As an artist, Roland feels the need to respond with sonic art against these acts of barbarism in Ukraine. The expression of sound is closest to Roland's artistry, and he therefore decided to create a neo-Dadaistic concept by making experimental sound collages from edited recordings from Ukraine. This processing is done with the Kyma system – a supercomputer for sound synthesis and sample manipulation. The result are landscapes, formed by sound spectra from, among other things, existing war reportage, as a commentary. Roland tilts these spectra and crosses this data from the three-dimensional fields that have now arisen. This can be in a chaotic way or based on algorithmic structures. In addition, these sound spectra are a metaphor for escape routes in a war world that we can perceive as sound trajectories moulded into binaural audio sculptures. Roland will supplement this project with sonic art based on current events in Ukraine.

Sculptures as SONIC SPACES | Dedicated to Rudi van de Wint

Roland Emile Kuit recorded sound impulses of the sculptures of Rudi van de Wint with contact microphones. The impulses were used to create sonic textural forms. These textural forms are reflecting the dialogues with the open air surroundings at the Nollen. Till the 22th of October you can find the retroperspective exhibition of Rudi van der Wint at the Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar:

Presentation Acoustic Interiors at The Institute for Sonology

Creating sonic portraits of the two buildings between which the Royal Conservatoire is currently transitioning: the old one at Juliana van Stolberglaan 1, a building full of stories, and the brand new Amare, an almost empty building at Spuiplein 150.

Which sounds in the old busy building would you like to preserve? Which sounds from Amare would you like to capture before it gets busy there? And after the old building has been abandoned, which spaces would you like to revisit?
