Studio Edwin van der Heide
T - Rijsterbos

T - Rijsterbos is a listening experience in which a continuum is being created between the sounding reality and synthetic sounds. The audience gets transported from the here & now to parallel sound worlds that are intersecting the existing world. Sometimes, what you hear is pure fiction and sometimes you will not be able to distinguish it from reality.

The source material of the composition consists of both recordings made in the Rijsterbos and synthesized electronic sounds. The recordings are slowly transformed, pulled apart, while sounds are added. The audience is lifted from the ground, carried along, put back and again taken in another direction. It is an abstract play that connects the subtle and the fantastic.

T - Rijsterbos is part of the LÛD sound art exhibition in the Rijsterbos, Friesland. It is part of the Leeuwarden Cultural Capital of Europe 2018 program.
