Roland Kuit - Nord Modular NMG2 & Kyma
Karin Schomaker - visuals
The fundamental idea of this work started at Elektonmusikstudion EMS in Stockholm. Roland Kuit was there to give lectures and as composer in the residence where he did research with the Buchla 200 and his Kyma system.(2014-2015). In the AB the starting point of these works will be made with the Clavia NMG2 modular synthesizer & the Kyma system.

Koenig and Werner Kaegi on the Institute for Sonology, Utrecht. Followed by a study of composition under Kaija Saariaho and Philippe Manoury at the IRCAM, Paris. Roland Kuit is an independent researcher, lecturer modular synthesis and composition. He contrived numerous cutting edge concepts in synthesis. As an author he writes about modular synthesis, research and sound design. His most comprehensive book is the "Laboratory of Patching; Illustrated Compendium of Modular Synthesis".

Screening ‘Dom’ by Walerian Borowczyk & Jan Lenica, 1958, 10’57”
Walerian Borowczyk is a renowned Polish film maker who later also became known for his (soft-) pornographic work. Jan Lenica was architect, cartoonist and graphic designer. Both artists worked together regularly in the ’50's and ’60's, and that resulted in a number of wonderful avant-garde films.
Dom (House) combines live action with various animation techniques. This short film was nominated in 1959 for a BAFTA movie award.
Francois Bayle - Trois Adantes (Diffusion)
Together with Schaeffer, Henry, Parmegianni, Reibel,… French composer François Bayle is considered one of the pioneers of European electronic music and musique concrète. This evening Floris Vanhoof will hold a diffusion of Trois Andantes (Couleurs froissées, Lune floue and Bouffées) - 3 pieces from Les Couleurs De La Nuit that Bayle composed in 1982, the première of which took place in the IRCAM in Paris on 15 March 1983
All Connected is a series in Huis23 which involves concerts, films, readings and instrument presentations with and about artists who play with the language of ‘voltage control’, who use the ‘modular’ as creative thought process and test musical limits with it, artists who work in the spirit of San Francisco Tape Music Centre: a collective that came into being when pioneers like Terry Riley, Morton Subotnick, Steve Reich, Ramon Sender, Pauline Oliveros, and many others connected their oscillators and tape-recorders together and from which the most progressive music of that period originated.
The series is curated by artist / composer Floris Vanhoof
