Offical promo for Klimat

Yves De Mey/Eavesdropper and Christoph De Boeck/Audiostore present their second collaboration, a further elaboration of Time Code Matter, a spatialized music performance that premiered at the “Concertgebouw” in Bruges in 2005. In Klimat, as well as in their own individual work, they explore the organic qualities of minuscule audio structures. The sonic texture connects with electronic forms of nature. The sound of Time Code Matter was established by and through the reflection of sound in the vast empty hall of the “Concertgebouw”, with the audience seated on stage.

This time, Audiostore and Eavesdropper wish to surround the audience in a more direct and confrontational fashion. People will stay within a circle of 8 loudspeakers where each individual can choose his point of view and of listening. Klimat builds a space where the musicians shape conditions and define atmosphere.

Next year , Eavesdropper and Audiostore will create an audio-performance with metal surfaces, vibrating and resonating along with the composition. The circular set-up for Klimat is a study for this bigger production.

To be continued.

New STEM-label performance

Audiostore and Eavesdropper are currently working on the next instalment of their surround audio performance-cycle.
After Time Code Matter (concerts + DVD), it's now time for KLIMAT, a concert for an eight speaker set-up.
We're currently working on the sounds and the software patch, almost reaching its final phase.
The first performance of Klimat is hosted by Happy New Ears, a festival for new music in Kortrijk - Belgium on Saturday September 23. More info soon here.

Eavesdropper at Sound? Check!

Eavesdropper will do a live score to film for Sound? Check! at MuHKA, museum for contemporary art in Antwerp - Belgium.
Totally improvised (i get to see the footage only a few hours before the show) and from scratch.
Afterwards, there's an eclectic DJ-set at Petrol (also in Antwerp).

Knobsounds - Stem blog available

Finally jumping on this train too. Hopefully we'll be able to update the blog very frequently. We'll mainly use it as a means of sharing concert info, release info, maybe some thoughts about issues we strongly relate to, and from time to time some recommendations for a better musical life. Please get in touch if there's something you want to share.

Thank you for your time.
