SAVE NOT SAVE
( Antwerp – Ward Weis )

MUHKA ( Museum for contemporary art of Antwerp ) hosts the ART’S BIRTHDAY PARTY this year.

Students SOUNDDESIGN of the Royal Academy for fine arts of Antwerp create a sonic environment with sounds they have catalogued as SAVE and NOT SAVE. They are randomised through a multi-speaker installation in which a monotone voice reads their description as a slow soft litany.

A multi-monitor version of The virtual listening project” by Floris Van Manen will be projected on the white walls of the museum.

Live sounds from in and around the musuem are processed by PURE DATA structures.

Additional acoustic snapshots of other performances ( State of the arts – by Jef Lambrecht ), live music ( noise-group Spasm ), DJ-ing, . in the museum are mixed as fragments in the live stream.

The Verdi & Ravel streams will be audible at different spots in the museum.
