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. Every week, Roland will supplement this project with sonic art based on current events regarding in Ukraine.
