is a sonic bike ride made for visitors that runs through the dune paths from the small seaside town of Kijkduin to Duindorp in the north east and along the cliff tops to the sand engine in the south west.
Made by Kaffe Matthews with The Bicrophonic Research Institute (BRI) whilst in residence for two weeks, it is her response to the hilly paths through the sand, taking riders to sparkling seaside vistas, encouraging up inclines with rhythm & work song, rewarding with blistering drones or delicate tiny tones at the massive landscapes along the tops.
Inspired by the unique atmosphere of Kijkduin, she also sampled and processed 70’s science fiction music and her collection of fairground organs which – accompanied by alpha waves create an encapsulating bubble from which the rider bursts to begin their journey. One of the most liner and surreal pieces to date, Pedalling SeaSides even manages momentary bike to helicopter transformations.
Commissioned by iii The Hague, Matthews was in residence from June 21st-July 6th 2015, hosted at DCR and locatieZ and supported by Thee aan Zee.
Pedalling SeaSides is open daily at 525 Delta Plein, Kijkduin.
It is Matthews ninth sonic bike work.
