A threesome of coloured vinyl by WORM Records. These records are extraordinary not just because of their appearance (bright yellow, blue and pink vinyl), but also because of their unique origins. The a-sides of the records were recorded for Soundpiece, a soundinstallation under the floor of the Schouwburgplein in Rotterdam. WORM invited the composers Machinefabriek, Pierre Bastien and Dyane Donck/Daisy Bell to compose a piece for this. The results are three soundartworks/tape compositions that are made for public space, but are impressive as an isolated piece of art as well. Towards the end of 2011 the pieces rang out at fixed times during the Soundpiece installation and something that stands out well, are the different approaches taken by the three composers.
Bastien is very French, but for quite some time now lives in Rotterdam. His work finds its place on the secant of installations / robotica / visual arts on one side and soundart / jazz / improvisation on the other. Pierre is signed to the Rephlex label (the Aphex Twin playground) but also turns out projects for dozens of other labels whilst working in the realms of dance and theatre too.
Soundpiece is a soundinstallation in the public space of the Schouwburgsplein in Rotterdam and utilising 32 speakers covers an area of 30 by 30 meters. This enables the compositions to be spread at low volume throughout the entire square.
