Procuced by Staalplaat Soundsystem in order to document their recent sonic activities and researches, this LP record is focused on 2 recent projects. "Composed Nature" by Staalplaat Soundsystem and LOLA landscape architects, is an installation developed for the Centrum voor Beeldende Kunst Dordrecht, consisting of a matrix of 64 trees. Controllable mechanical vibrators are mounted on individual trees and are operated through custom made software. The sound of each tree can vary from a barely audible noise to a heavy "Green noise", thereby offering different sound textures to be played. To play the trees, many spatial sonic patterns have been programmed, and a musical composition titled "Shiver Me Timbers" has been written. The piece is shown as an installation, allowing visitors to activate patterns via their mobile phones interactively. What is left unspoken is who is in control: nature, mankind or technology ? "Yokomono pro" by Staalplaat Soundsystem, was originally developed for the Indian Khoj (International Artists Association in New Delhi). This piece questions horn noise as a social sound and communication. The incredible volume and size of Indian traffic and the sounds it produces, was the inspiration for this project. Their communication language seems to be spoken with the horn; signalling with it everything needed, much the way we use indicator lights in Europe. We seek to intercept this phenomenon of car signalling and overlay it within a so-called meaningful structure. 30 auto rickshaws were hired and prepared technically in order to remotely take over control of their horns. This enabled to synchronously play rhythmic patterns as the autos drive along a pre-determined route. Using the taxis with their horns as a choir, it forms a combination of voice patterns and dynamic spatial movements which in turn create an undetermined sound choreography. This car horn experiment hopes to engage on a large scale with the relationship between discrete signals among generalised noise in public space. The piece was premiered at the India Art Summit in New Delhi, India, in August 2008 and further presented at CTM Berlin in 2010, Today's Art Festival in Den Haag in 2010 and at Timelab in Gent, 2011. In collaboration with LOLA Landscape Architects. Edition limited to 250 copies.
