The newly commissioned work Line-AV by Macular is an evolution of Daan Johan’s original work Line. In the initial piece 32 speakers are addressed by using a single mono signal. By the use of custom build circuitry the wave signal is split up and divided so that different segments of the wave get played by different speakers in the system.
X is a performative installation by Lyndsey Housden (UK/NL), Wolf Bittner (AT/DE), and Ryan Teague (UK/IE) especially created for Klankvorm during short residency at V2_ in October 2018. X is an audio-visual spatial environment based on the compositional principles of geometry, cycles and events. Working simultaneously with sound, space and projections, the elements are brought together via a flexible grid floating just above the audience. X was made possible thanks to a commission from Klankvorm at V2_ who provided the possibility to spend a concentrated 5 day period together to experiment with and create a new work.
