A threesome of coloured vinyl by WORM Records. These records are extraordinary not just because of their appearance (bright yellow, blue and pink vinyl), but because of their arising history as well. The a-sides of the records were recorded for Soundpiece, a soundinstallation under the floor of the Schouwburgsquare in Rotterdam.
WORM invited the composers Machinefabriek, Pierre Bastien and Dyane Donck/Daisy Bell to compose a piece for this. The results are three soundartworks/tape compositions that are made for public space, but are impressive as isolated piece of art as well. Something that stands out as well, is the different approaches of the three composers.The pieces were played at fixed times at the Soundpiece installation, for a month at the end of 2011.
On the 8th of october 2012, these records were presented in WORM with a performance of all three performers.
Dyane Donck/Daisy Bell
Daisy Bell is the new group of Donck. The live show involves a collection of electronic and acoustic instruments, harmony vocals, lots of live sampling and sound processing plus a video projection, illustrating each song with minimal, yet evocative imagery. All songs are based on poetry by William Blake. His texts provide the vocal spine of the compositions. These range from experimental musique concrete to pop "with a twist" with a strong intensity, dark atmosphere and raw beats.
Bastien is very French, but lives in Rotterdam for quite some time now. His work finds its place on the secant of installations / robotica / visual arts on one side and soundart / jazz / improvisation on the other. Pierre is signed to the Rephlex label (the Aphex Twin playground) but also does projects for lots of other labels and works for dance and theatre as well.
Machinefabriek is the project of Rutger Zuydervelt. Machinefabriek’s music combines elements of ambient, modern classical, minimalism, drone and field recordings. He has a big discography, containing his own releases as well as releases on renowned lables.
Soundpiece is a soundinstallation in the public space of the Schouwburgsquare in Rotterdam and covers an area of 30 by 30 meter through 32 speakers. It can be heard across the entire Schouwburgsquare at limited volume.
