From May 17th until July 25th the British sound artist Simon Whetham has a working period at Witte Rook. He starts his residency online and will spend the final three weeks in Breda. Simon uses found sounds and objects as raw material for composition, installation and performance.
Over the last two years he has been activating motor devices through playing amplified audio signals through them, and exploring ways to cause and retain a physical or material trace of a sound through analogue and mechanical methods rather than digital.
His projects are continually combining aspects of installation and performance, and he will also use this working period to discuss the process of creation of the work, in order to better understand how an audience responds and what they gain from it. Simon will close his residency with a presentation. Keep an eye on our socials for more information.
