'The Universe Beyond The Sun' — performance at museum dhondt dhaenens belgium
This performance is a collaboration with contemporary sound artist mo bescha, creating a sculptural sound spectrum, by using the audio files of the 'black waves' album and a selection of sanskrit mantras.
During the exhibition this installation functions as an altar. The installation consists out of several pieces of concrete, 2 record players and 2 impressive speaker towers that allow the visitor to play the 'black waves' album and bring a dimension of mysticism to the exhibition space. The title of the installation ‘hRdaya', meaning ‘heart’ in Sanskrit, reflects the gentle rhythms on the record, reminding almost of a heartbeat of the ocean.
'Terror's Witness' — performance at SECONDroom antwerp belgium
The trash metal band 'toxic shock' performed the following words I wrote:
NO ANCHOR TO ASSURE THAT CUNNING MANTRA OF ENDURE IT'S ALL RIGHT ON THE RUINS
OUT WITH DESTRUCTION GIMM YOUR NUMBER
GET IT ON YOUR BACK GIVE THE PIMP THE SACK PULL THE NOP OF DESTRUCTION
BRING MORN AND EVES BACK TO THE THRONE COME ON BRING IT BACK THE OTHER WAY WITNESS OUR BLUSH
BRING THE PRESENT BACK GIVEUP HOME
SHARE THE CRIME NOT TO CHOOSE
LET THE GHOST OF PEACE MOCK THIS SPOT MOTHER FUCK THE TEARS
CHECK THE INTERIOR SO THEY CAN'T HACK YOUR STYLE
RAP THE LAND OF RUINS AND DESTRUCTION MORN AND EVES FALLEN CROWN
SHARE THE CRIME OF NOT TO CHOOSE AND DANCE THE DOOM LET THE GHOST OF PEACE MOCK THIS SPOT
