Oorsprong

Hans Van Koolwijk

2007


Visitors can literally step into a giant flute and experience the turbulent vibrations of the air that is blown in the sound installation from the other side of the instrument. After closing the door, it becomes obvious that “sound is substance”. The effect of the installation is at its strongest at the labium, because that is exactly the spot where the sound is created: the origin.

Hans Van Koolwijk (NL) is fascinated by sounds that can be heard and felt. He has studied graphic arts and has made a name with his ‘Bambuso Sonoro’, flutes that can be played simultaneously by just one solo performer.
