Baumusik – een auditief avontuur

Guides: Sjoerd Leijten, Sebastiaan van Kints, Pia van den Beuken, Renée Rooijmans, Salomé Mooij, Laurens van der Wal

An auditory adventure led by the Baumusik collective along the construction fences of the Rotterdams stage.

Roaring, rattling, clanging and throbbing, the city of Rotterdam is growing. Sound awaits around every corner. Etudes of concrete mixers and earth moving, duets of steel grinding iron braiders and crosscut saws. In this expedition, the Baumusik collective investigates the musicality of the building city. While walking, the city transforms into a concert hall with the contractor as orchestra and the architect as composer. How is the construction worker a percussionist and a steel fixer the soloist?

This inquisitive expedition takes place under the leadership of Sjoerd Leijten, sonic explorer and composer, Salomé Mooij, theater maker and gifted tinkerer, Renée Rooijmans, experienced MOMO guide and city translator, Pia van den Beuken, multi-sensory visualizer, along with design adventurers Sebastiaan van Kints and Laurens van der Wal of Walden Studio.
