In residence: Stijn Demeulenaere

Stijn Demeulenaere and the duo The Third Guy present a project in which field recordings and musical instruments interact with the natural sonic environment of a place. Through real-time interaction, the performers create layers of sounds that all interact with each other, creating a multi-layered trialogue, bound between time-linearity and space. With Everybody Lives Here, we want to create a performance that explores the sound of spaces. We work with the sound of a place, add our own sounds to it and use them to highlight the aural identity of the spaces we play in. Through an interaction between the three performers and the audience, we aim to create a sound environment that explores the sonic essence of places, their acoustics, their soundscape and the listening of the audience and ourselves. The performance is ideally suited for in situ performances, but also works on a stage, in concert halls or other buildings.
