A visual as a virtual performance for the NORCAL NOISEFEST 2022.
This soundscape is based on “KLANKENBOS” (sound forest) – little red boxes are placed in the forest and make sound when they see movement creating “composition by moving”.
The sounds are recorded and used to compose “KLANKENBOS”. As counterpart a wood grinder for wooden garbage gives the piece some dark tones.
Hope you like this natural noise composition \0/

NORCAL NOISEFEST 2022 (Sacramento, CA, US)
A visual called “KLANKENBOS”
The video starts at the beginning of KLANKENBOS, fancy some noise in all kinds of styles in this unique genre check the whole video.
Years ago I visited “KLANKENBOS” and left with a smile on my face: what a fine place the be, hear & feel the nature combined with all kind of sound installations.
Some months later I did the KLANKENBOS field recordings focussing on the red boxes knowing I once could use this for a (sound)project.
2022 was the moment, SONICrider got invited to do a virtual performance at the NorCal NoiseFest 2022.
Since noise is a genre I never did and on the other hand as SONICrider I tried to make something that fits into the things I do: I’m happy with the visual and soundscape.
KLANKENBOS (the visual) became an ambient piece of music using the red boxes in different ways combined with a wood grinder: linking the forest, the mechanical boxes & the force of destroying wood. A metaphor how “we human beings” use our planet.
