Litania of the Home Sound - addendum is a soundscape constructed from home sounds that Jacob Vanneste and Charlotte Peys received from all sorts of corners and rooms. These are lo-fi recordings, according to the artists characteristic of the digital era. They listened carefully to the submitted recordings and classified them according to length. All home sounds are played on the basis of assigned factors. The shorter the sound, the more likely it is to occur. The result is an infinite and random lament in which a meta-home feeling emerges, a soundtrack in which many living rooms slide over each other, a Litania of home sounds. 

This composition is an addendum to the project Litania of the Home Sound, in which Vanneste and Peys invited nine authors to formulate a literary resonance based on the home sounds submitted. You can listen to this project on www.litanievanhetthuisgeluid.be.

Brussels-based Jacob Vanneste (BE - 1990) obtained his Master's degree in Music in Percussion Performance Cum Laude at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in 2013. He studied under Bart Quartier, Gert François, Bart Bouckaert and Benjamin Van Esser. He also followed a course in Audiovisual Composition with Pedro Guajardo in Granada, Spain. His artistic work includes contemporary repertoire (solo and ensemble) with a particular focus on electronics and performance. In his pieces Jacob Vanneste seeks to connect to aspects of society, history, politics and philosophy. The most important core of his artistic work is creation and wonder, with great attention to the sound experience. This is often combined with adventurous audience arrangements during live performances. He usually collaborates with composers and artists from other art disciplines.

In March 2020, he started a collaboration with artist Charlotte Peys (BE - 1987). She studied Cultural Sciences in Maastricht and Illustration in Ghent. She considers drawing and writing as relational matters. It is a drawing of lines, making underlying connections visible, unfolding spaces. In her work, she searches again and again for the most appropriate form to make a conversation possible. She draws lines between human and nonhuman, between what was and what is, between fact and fiction, between human and environment and is hungry for projects in which connection and encounter with everything around is central.
