Proximity Music: Sensing After Thought, Gemma Luz Bosch and Jurriaan de Vos

Gemma Luz Bosch and Jurriaan de Vos presented Aircilla as part of Proximity Music: Sensing After Thought. More than 250 handmade ceramic chimes hang above visitors appearing like a giant chandelier. The chimes are raised and lowered through a system of ropes, clamps, pulleys and wheels. The raising and lowering of the chimes causes them to collide, creating a soundscape that evolves hand in hand with the shape of the physical structure. Aircilla is a collaboration between Gemma Luz Bosch and Jurriaan de Vos. Gemma is a composer and new instrument maker working with ceramics. In her work she uses her own hand made instruments exploring the boundaries of music. Jurriaan is an installation-artist with a background in physical theatre. He is fascinated by kinetic art, transforming spaces, and the relationship between nature and technology. Videography: Tanja Busking Videography, Francesco Enriquez
