  • In this performance we focused on the radio, the noise signal ratio. With an old transistor radio, that is unable to find any signal, not while changing channels searching for the strongest signal, reducing noise, not never. The obstructed signals will lay the basis of our sound practice. Searching for different interpretations and variations of the corrupted signal, altering it to clean signal sometimes disrupted again by grainy parts. For this piece we experiment with  the influence the cello has on the produced variations of noise coming from the synths. It paddles from the clean signal from the analogue instrument to adapting the grains and noise of the synths while also getting digitally influenced by different effects. Hopefully you enjoy the musical interpretation of the noise signal ratio as much as we take joy in understanding it through making this music.

Salon Brut

Quinten Dierick: synths, tape, vocals, percussion.

Gemma Meulendijks: cello, vocal, launchpad pro and ableton live.

Since autumn 2020 we play together in a duo, combining all-day-life sounds and noises with melodies, loops and beats, using analogue instruments complemented with digital sound effects. 

The foundation of our music is improvised adapted to the surroundings where we play or perform. We create a concept of ideas that suit the situation, wherefore we think out the ground frame to improvise on. Sometimes it is necessary to record certain sounds at forehand, for example nature -, printing technique -, or for in this case radio sounds. They are mixed into the sessions, (we improvise around this certain theme).  

In playing we search for the variety in sounds the instruments can make, for they can create the most interesting resonances, within themselves, with the other instruments and the room itself. We try to unfold the space and circumstances in general, varying from repetitive rhythms, bold elementary sounds, to lyrical melodies, theatrical statements and back to silence.
