Stijn Demeulenaere nominated for the Sound of the Year Awards
Stijn Demeulenaere’s installation, Zijlijn / Linea Lateralis, has been nominated for the Sound Of the Year awards, in the “Composed with Sound” category. Zijlijn is a research into the underwater soundscape of the North Sea. The murky water of the North Sea makes for very low visibility, so many animals depend on sound and smell to live and exist underwater. But the North Sea is also one of the busiest and the loudest seas in the world, making the relationship between man-made noise and natural sound a very difficult one. The installation was commissioned by Concertgebouw Brugge. You can see Zijlijn at the upcoming Hear Here Festival. Other dates TBA.
