In collaboration with music technology company Kodaly I started investigating possible web apps for their Kibo MIDI controller.
This year I’ve joined Singulart, who’ve kindly invited me to join their online gallery and art platform. A selection of my paintings is presented for sale on my artist page on Singulart.
Music Pattern Generator
Music Pattern Generator v2.1 is a web app for making complex polyrhythms. Animated graphics make the patterns easy to create and understand.
In my work I often find it interesting to use a process that includes a form of randomness. In this case the memory of a sample player is filled with random sounds. These sounds can then be used to create music with. This is a piece of music made with a set of random sounds on the Volca:
Selah magazine kindly invited me to submit some paintings for their third, fall 2018 issue. The printed magazine arrived in the mail today, a great looking small-form magazine filled with poems and artworks.
Selah is a new art and literary magazine from Covington, Louisiana, USA.
This year I’ve joined artist network untitledxxi. They kindly invited me after we came in contact on Instagram.
Untitledxxi is an international artists network that offers a digital platform by running a website and being active on various social media. It also deploys real world activities by organising exhibitions and by finding spaces for artists to show their work.
During the summer the idea grew to try and combine images and sound. To see how they influence each other, and in the expectation that it might lead to new ideas for paintings. And possibly to new ideas for music as well.
The idea took the form of a music video. This summer I made a recording with a small compact camera in a fixed position on one of the Weesperplein metro station entrances. It’s close to my home in Amsterdam. I used the audio track as the base to build the music on. And edited the video by moving small clips of the video around in time, so time starts to repeat itself. Small bits of daily life keep on returning, like repeating patterns in music.
