Afternoon Dust

Sun, sea, sand, and sound

I spent Friday afternoon on the beach at Scheveningen with sound artists Frouke and Leon, watching them work. They are currently investigating ways of trying to generate sounds from wind currents using kites – the wind-driven movements of the kite produce vibrations in the kite’s string, which can then be picked up using a contact mic. The research at Scheveningen is facilitated by a BADGAST residency from Satellietgroep, a Den Haag-based initiative dedicated to the study of “the cultural significance of oceans and seas from the perspective of the arts and science”. We had great fun, the weather was great, and we all got a little sunburnt.
