    "Play it one more time for me La Ville Fumée ' A sound-art installation that works on hand made cigars and refers to the history of Eindhoven city, when it was one of the largest cigar-producing cities of Europe. At that time the city was also called ‘La Ville Fumée’. The installation is in many ways about nature versus culture. The technique used here has an almost machine like character, that is controlled and monitored by a natural and traditional item: the hand made cigar. Because each cigar has its own strength by the natural and traditional way of making, they all have their own fire rate. It is precisely this fact that the installation is not working in a predictable way but rather relates to a more or less natural rhythm. The installation has 4 tuners each control a recorder by means of pistons containing the hand-rolled cigars. There are 4 different recorders: a bass flute, alto, tenor, and a soprano. The pistons with the cigars and the recorders are both controlled by 2 abstract lungs. This sound-art burning cigar installation can be seen as a tribute to the former tobacco industry of Eindhoven city and its thousands of workers and craftsmen. The sound composition is a requiem for the former cigar production industry of Eindhoven. Dimensions: 500 x 500 x 120 cm Materials: silk, epoxy, wood, brass, hand made cigars, pvc pipes, recorders Year: 2013 Concept and production: Ronald van der Meijs http://www.ronaldvandermeijs.nl Location: Art Foundation De Fabriek, Eindhoven, Netherlands http://www.defabriekeindhoven.nl/

      Creating a sculpture of sounds; The installation consists out of two different sound bowls. They both produce a sound in an analogous manner by the friction of rubber on the edge of each bowl spinning around on a turntable. The two different tones are dueling with each other in the space around the installation. This results in various sound fields with so called ‘sound knots’. This sculpture of sounds can be experienced by walking through it. The bowls are filled with water to give a more clean tone and to visualize the sound of the bowl. The water pattern corresponds with the sound fields around the installation. Dimensions: 95 x 102 x 35 cm. Materials: 2 Technics DJ turntables, brass, bronze, two sound bowls, rubber. Year: 2011 Concept and production: Ronald van der Meijs Website: www.ronaldvandermeijs.nl

          'Parthenocarp' is a sound art installation which consists out of 3 one string instruments. The sound of the 3 instruments is creating a 'drone' which is changing in a very slowly way by the growth of the cucumbers. Each string is vibrating by the touch of a wooden wheel which is slowly turning around by a drill behind each instrument. Because each cucumber has it's own speed of growing, the tone of each instrument is changing in it's own way. Therefore the drone is constantly changing into harmony and dis-harmonie... The work refers to the changing urban plans of Alkmaar during the last 50 years. It changed from an agricultural area into an industrial area and is now being changed into a residential region. dimension: length of each instrument: 4,5 meter materials: cucumber plants, water, sodium lights, drill machines, ply -wood, metal, steel strings. year: 2010 exhibition: Kunsteyssen, Alkmaar, Netherlands concept, production and design: Ronald van der Meijs website: www.ronaldvandermeijs.nl

            clip documentary Dutch Light : On the dike between Marken & Monnikendam There’s an ancient myth that the light in Holland is different from anywhere else, but it has never been put to the test. It’s the legendary light we see in paintings. The German artist Joseph Beuys, however, says that it lost its unique radiance in the 1950s, bringing an end to a visual culture that had lasted for centuries. Dutch Light breaks new ground by examining this renowned but elusive phenomenon. What is Dutch light? Is the light in Holland really different from that in other parts of the world? What is true, what is myth, what is fiction? And was Joseph Beuys right? Dutch Light addresses these fascinating questions. And it is an ode to light and to observation. It turns looking into a new experience.

                  Peter v Wijngaarden and a friend started Wonderland lichtshow in '67. Yours truely bought in '85 the half of it from the friend. Peter still owns his half and does now & a then a performance (wonderlandlichtshow.nl). I quit mine 'Northernlightshow' when all the music people wanted to hear, was techno. Later I made some dvd's (universalcolors.nl) and the little revival came together with questions like, how do you do it. I hope this movie about making a liquid slide, says it all. There is no secret, it's only experiment and some perseverance. Enjoy and have a GREAT life! Amorobe 18-4-2012.
