Sound Installation // 350 cm x 260 cm x 200 cm // Stainless steal, springs, wood, sound system // Dunkirk // 2016
Duin Geluid is a sound installation in Dunkirk’s Halle aux Sucres (a cultural centre dedicated to cities), made of 16 polyhedrons hanging from the ceiling, each one emitting parts of field-recordings made in the neighbourhood. Dunkirk is sonically specific because residential sounds stand alongside heavy industry soundscapes. The installation offers the possibility to the public to make their own mix of sounds by walking between the polyhedrons. There is then a general soundscape that one can hear with a few meters of space and a more personal soundscape that everyone makes for him/herself by strolling within the bounds of the installation.
Timelapse of the set up:
The field-recordings were made during the month of January 2016 in the Dunkirk area.
