Songs of Love (and Decay)

Songs of Love (and Decay) is a song-cycle by Robert van Heumen for voice and electronics performed by Evelien van den Broek with financial support from the Performing Arts Fund NL. A series of personal texts about love in a decaying (sound) world. Inspired by Christian Fennesz' Endless Summer and J.M. Coetzee's Summertime.

The first song can be listened here. First in many meanings.

Point-to-Line at De Pont

A week ago I presented the installation/composition Point-to-Line at Museum De Pont, a fabulous modern art museum in the southern part of the Netherlands. I was nice hearing responses on the thing I built. Making some adjustments, below are two video's of the current state. The first one is a live rendition, a composed version, where I was at the controls making decisions on color patterns, which are leading the sound. The second one is where I let the installation run automatically, so any human hand in image and sound progression is purely a result from configuration done in the software prior to running it.

Note: due to the screen-capture process the video quality is lower than in real live.
