The Machine

Residency and project to be developed at PEER Paper Platform, throughout the months of December 2016 and January 2017.

Open atelier: 02 december - 23 december Exhibition: 06 january - 30 january Opening: 06 january 17:00 - 20:00 Jam session: 08 january 14:00 - 18:00

We are Jörn Nettingsmeier and Alina Lupu, with combined backgrounds in music studies, fine arts, computer science, psychology, theater, as well as audio engineering and design. It’s an odd set of skills which brought us together, along with a wish to make projects which reach out and offer a different spatial awareness as well as awareness of overall context to our public.

During a month-long residency at PEER Paper Platform we aim to be researching, testing and building a collaborative distributed musical instrument – a sound machine for interaction.

Our collective instrument has the potential to trigger small, temporary (“for a day”) communities which are figuring out game rules in an open space, communities born out of the understanding that it’s only through interaction that complex ways of expression through sound can be born.

Made possible with the kind support of Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst.
