18:00 discussion + concert RCC – Research Concert Cycle
January 11, 2020 –
We warmly invite you to the 1st RCC of the decade. The 42nd edition of RCC - Research Concert Cycle will start off the evening with a very special (and tasty) presentation. Food. We all know it but maybe we never paid attention to the sounds surrounding it? In Wilson Leywantono's presentation we will have an opportunity to explore food.
Following, Wilf Amis will present Infinitely Compact Scale. With his synths, zither, voice and video, he will take us through a journey, the past and future of the universe and the human society within it.
Golden tip: stay around for the cheap drinks and share your thoughts.
Doors open at 17.45 – presentation starts at 18.00!
SOUND ON FOOD
Food is an integral part of our daily life. A key part to survival, both to the physique and of the mind. One of the things that is used to represent cultural tradition now, the past, and sometimes the future. Many things are involved into food. From the raw ingredients, the delivery, the processes, the eating, and all the experiential behaviour that revolves around it. With that in mind, one key factor that is often overlooked on the daily relation to food is the sound that surrounds these very act. And today we will explore just a little part of it.
Born in Indonesia, Wilson Leywantono is a composer and chef currently based in the Hague, the Netherlands. His current interest ranges from concert music, modular electronic right through food that sounds make and almost everything in between. While occasionally terrified, Wilson is constantly pushing himself and keen to explore potential untapped territories between sound and everything that revolves around it.
INFINITELY COMPACT SCALE PT. 5-8
Performed with synths, zither, voice and video, this is part of a large work-in-progress cycle demonstrating the different iterations of an infinitely expandable just tuning system, and will attempt to chronologically document the past and future of the universe and the human society within it, with this excerpt telling the story from the formation of the subatomic particles up until the human cognitive revolution.
Wilf Amis (UK) is a composer, performer, technologist and postgraduate Sonology student in The Hague. His work is mostly concerned with musical representations of utopian futures, and, by extension, possibilities for new tuning systems, new electronic instruments, and new attitudes to intellectual property.
