Sjoerd Leijten & Olle Kruijt

Sound artist Sjoerd Leijten and psychiatrist / engineer Olle Kruijt make sound bicycle performances and art expeditions as part of the Volle Band collective. Next to exploring the urban environment with bicycles, they are now exploring the sky, the cosmos and the earth through radiomagnetic waves in their brand new project BEACON. BEACON is kindly supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL.

The aether is full of radiomagnetic waves. Wifi, mobile telecommunication, radio stations, yet also the radiomagnetic waves of distant comets float through the air around us. BEACON is an installation performance in which the aether is scanned for all kinds of signals, that are channeled into an ongoing cosmic composition.
