Notes

Including a 125 x 200 mm book, 124 pages, 52 images.

Paul Panhuysen (Het Apollohuis Eindhoven) curated a program of mechanical orchestras at De IJsbreker in Amsterdam on invitation of Jan Wolff in the summer of 1997. This book plus CD documents the mechanical orchestras created by the six artists Trimpin, Frédéric Le Junter, Ulrich Eller, Ad van Buuren, Pierre Bastien and Harald Kubiczak. Essays by Kitty Zijlmans (Leiden University) and Leon van Noorden (Gent University) use the programmatic title of the project as a point of departure for examining the absence of musicians in the process of making music. Sound installations and sound sculptures open up new ways of reflecting on the customary perceptions and concepts in music. In addition, it includes texts of the six artists about music and sound in their work.
