iii residency – concert


15 June 2017

From 10.6.2017 – 24.6.2017 I had the pleasure to be a resident at the instrument inventors initiative (iii) in the Hague. Other posts on the iii residency.


Among plenty of other things, I had the opportunity to play my feedback-based instrument Half-closed loop at their concert series no patent pending which is already at its impressive 28th installment.

There were also performances by two fellow iii artists in residence, Davide Tidoni and Yuri Landman. Davide describes himself as a researcher in the field of sound and listening, interested in the relational dimension of listening and the uses of sound in everyday life. His performance tested loudspeakers for the explosive capabilities. Yuri is a musician and inventor of musical instruments currently working on mechanically revolving instruments based on electric guitars.

In my performance, I further explored the capabilities of feedback by, for the first time, adding analog synthesis circuitry into the Half-closed loop feedback path.
