“Conceived and directed by Francisco López audio-DH is a collaborative project of epic proportions that weaves the sounds of 250 of The Hague’s creative minds into an exploration of the city’s vibrant sonic tapestry.
With the help of fellow composer Barbara Ellison and the artist platform iii, 50 curators were invited to rally the city’s creative community, gathering contributions from composers, experimental musicians, sound artists, noise makers etc.. in the broadest and most inclusive definition of contemporary sonic creativity. The response was outstanding, resulting in a collection of 195 tracks by 250 artists.
This collection is made available both in the form of an online edition on audiodh.nl and also as a physical edition, as a high capacity USB memory card, published by iii editions.
Furthermore, the contributions collected are used as material for new meta-compositions created by HARING (Humanless Audio Recombinator for Infinite Novelty Generation), a software designed by Francisco López together with Andrea Vogrig and Darien Brito.
Launched on September 22nd 2016 at Korzo theatre during TodaysArt festival with a concert performed by HARING, audio-DH will be presented further at various listening stations to be announced.
All the audio material collected and the software that was created for the project are released under Creative Commons licence and freely downloadable.“

Sonic Anchor # 28, Site-specific
Re-recorded Spatial Dynamics
“A new series of Sonic Anchor, Second Coming Series, will be launched in the historic building Comix Home Base. In this series, we invite artists that we have featured in the previous Sonic Anchor to present works that response directly to this historical site.
To kickoff the Second Coming series, composer-sound artist Lam Lai will conduct an experiment in outdoor live looping, paying homage to Lucier’s tape-loop classic “I Am Sitting In A Room”. Since her last Sonic Anchor appearance, Lam Lai had spent time honing her craft in Netherlands – we can’t wait to see her transformation.”

Eating the Sound of the Vibraphone for Vibraphone and Environmental sounds
Karen YU Vibraphone
To develop a new piece with a vibraphone and environment sounds and use different dimension of recording/playback methods as musical elements in the piece. The main focus is to set the live vibraphone sound into ambient sound.
The sounds of the vibraphone are recorded through 4 microphones at the same time. Microphones are placed in different location of the building (refer to the picture above) and pointing to different direction. This placement allows recording the vibraphone sound in different acoustic environments. So in the recording, you could hear the difference of sound distance and the sound environment among 4 different microphones. Two channels speakers use to playback the sound.
