Jeroen Uyttendaele - tabling
Sound artist Jeroen Uyttendaele prepares his new installation performance tabling. Recordings of wind are used to let the a collection of tables sound through self-made loudspeakers and resonators made of metal, crystal, glass and ceramics. The sounds of the resonators are picked up by microphones and sent back through those same objects. This creates a constantly evolving soundscape of feedback and resonance.
“Microphones and speakers are transducers that translate sound into other things and turn other things into sounds. In this residency I’m using a series of selfmade “speaker tables” and a collection of resonating objects such as metal, crystal, glass and ceramics to filter and alter sounds traversing through the objects. The sounds, mostly wind sounds made from field recordings, are picked up by microphones and fed back again to the objects creating a constantly evolving soundscape of feedback and resonance. Besides the design of the tables I’m researching specific gestures and movements in order to replace the usual knobs and sliders of an electronic music performance by the direct, physical manipulation of the “speakers."
Jeroen Uyttendaele is an artist working mostly with sound and its relation to light, space and materiality . This translates itself in the development of audio-visual instruments, installations and sound compositions. His works often exploit basic properties of technology such as electricity, metal, conductive materials as the main tools for expression. He is co-founder of iiinitiative, an artist run platform specialised in inventing new instruments and presentation formats that engage with the four dimensions of image, sound, space and the body. Jeroen lives and works in Brussels.
