Preview of our project-documentation DVD 'Sensing City - In Concert with Amsterdam'
Thank you for watching.
/// April 10th 2008 Amsterdam
A city has its own rhythm that affects the life of its people and is at the same time created by them. Bus schedules, trafﬁc lights and the turn signals of cars are familiar patterns to the citizen. This interplay between creation and inspiration is also at the heart of all music.
So what happens if we allow these urban rhythms to occasionally have a direct inﬂ uence on the musical performance of an eleven-piece-ensemble?
As the movement of cars outside the concert venue triggers the rhythms that are being played, the urban dwellers not knowingly become part of the composition, the city becomes audible through the musicians.
