TodaysArt x Azimuth

September 2018
TodaysArt x Azimuth

A new live set with visuals by Mark Ridder. In contrast to our previous set – which dealt with fast, rhythmical fragments – this time it’s a slow but continously developping soundscape. Starting with very subtle micro textures, the set gradually transforms into a theatrical, delerium-like soundscape and heavy percussion. Part of the Azimuth program at TodaysArt 2018. Azimuth is an organization dedicated to the production and performance of spatial (multichannel) electroacoustic music.

Sneakpreview of Sakura: An Archetypal Journey, at Arts Chiyoda, Japan

April 2018

Based in Japan during Spring, Sakura presents a mind-bending narrative as a way to communicate the beginnings of life. This experimental film collects footage recorded in Japan and presents it in collage-like form. The film ties the various segments together with music and an outsider voice-over narration, which ponders topics such as history, philosophy, technology and society.

Director, scenario, editor, camera: Anne Fehres
Motion graphic design: Luke Conroy
Music, sound design, mix: Jim Zweerts
Music: Remco Jacobs
Graphic design and color grading: Tanja Busking

AV performance at INDEx, The Hague

April 2018

“With this set, Jim Zweerts aka FLUQS and Mark Ridder explore different relations between rhythmical patterns in both sound and visuals. Intuitively they play with contrast, synchronicity and interference between the different media. The result is a raw mix of fragmented club sounds, glitches and percussion, accompanied by flickering and organic projections”

PIP expo presents: Aura Rendon Benger & Leslie Nagel

November 2017

A collaboration with Aura Rendon Benger and Leslie Nagel. Their installations and sculptures create a surreal environment comprehending movement and interaction. The sculptures create dialogs through rhythmic motion and sound. For this exposition I created a soundscape by transforming sounds of water and the machinery of the installations.

Mischa Daams’ Origin: Sustained

August 2017

With his project ‘Origin’, Mischa Daams sets out audiovisual expeditions into the abstract, organic universe that results from a video feedback loop. In this continuous process of recurrence and ‘translating’ some of the information is lost; this results in the mutation and transformation of the image. For Origin: Sustained, he applies tools to make the system analyze its output and respond to this, a self analytical feedback loop. The analysis-data is both controlling the camera and sound modules designed by me.

Exposed at Atonal Berlin, Ars Electronica, FIBER Festival and TodaysArt

Bryan Arias and Nederlands Dans Theater 2

September 2016

Choreographer Bryan Arias invited me to compose for his upcoming work …in frayed edges for Nederlands Dans Theater 2, as part of the series Up & Coming Choreographers.

Dance has the inherent capability of effectively staging a sense of temporal awareness. Arias centralizes this metaphysical idea of time: an always passing and ever present precondition of our understanding of life and the universe that surrounds us.

For this work I composed a piece with material merely extracted from a surgery recording. Sound transformations were applied on different time scales, varying from bigger rhythmical blocks to the inner microstructures of the sounds. These variations are exposed in a playful, non-chronological order creating a Lynchian network of transformed memories.

Performed 30 september till 5 october at Korzo Den Haag
