In this special performance, Edwin van der Heide presents several works in quad sound—Spatial Interferences, Impulse and Field of Overtones—all designed to deliver a uniquely physical experience for the audience.

Lampo also will screen Joost Rekveld’s award-winning film #11 (Marey <-> Moiré) (1999, 35mm) with soundtrack by van der Heide. In this abstract work, filaments of light converge and diverge to produce colorful stroboscopic patterns.
