Simonis & Dirk Van Lieshout
'Rumoer' is an art installation made by Dirk Van Lieshout
that lives @ The Kattenburg hood, in Amsterdam. It
consists of six metal sewer lids that lay on/in the
ground. If you stand on one lid, it gives you some sounds.
All lids have different soundscapes. The soundscapes
differ from short & hilarious radioplays, to collages
with historical material, a string quartet and protest
songs. The overall theme is 'Rumor', aimed at the long
history of riots this particular neighbourhood of
Amsterdam has. Lukas & Dirk made the concept of the
sounds together and Lukas recorded and mixed it, and wrote
some songs if necessary.
With help from (ao.); Mark Ritsema, Sander Blom, Esther
Eij, Noortje Köhne, Jaap Altelaar and many others.
