Artists / EDWIN VAN DER HEIDE (NL)
For Rund-Funk-Empfangs-Saal the idea of the radio hall is being inverted. Edwin van der Heide and Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag take the signals in the electromagnetic space that intersect the concert hall as source material for their performance. Natural radio signals and transmitted long wave signals up to about 150 kHz that traverse the performance space are being received and translated into a tangible space of acoustically audible signals. While the unexpected is an important part of their performance, van der Heide and Sonntag navigate, steer and combine the different signals and shape the unpredictable.
The reason for the German title is the origin of radio transmission that is captured in the poetic term: "Rund-Funk”.
