Human Body

A programme of 20th- and 21st-century music for harp, clarinet, electronic textures and the human body itself, exploring the relation between body and sound, frequencies and sensory stimuli.

Gwyneth Wentink curated, in commission of The Concertgebouw Amsterdam, ‘Human Body’,

exploring responses to our experience of embodiment through music, live performance and multi disciplinary performances. Wentink forms a team with multimedia artist Mark Bain, clarinetist Lars Wouters van den Oudenweijer, musician Julien Mier, composers Wouter Snoei and Michiel Mensingh and mulit media artist Beer van Geer.

Human Body consists of 21rst compositions, performances and period music. Mark Bain’s The Archisonic, performed by the Bain himself, is an intensely physical sonic experience, designed to turn the venue itself into a body, placing seismis sensore at several location in and around the location. With the amplification of these sounds, frequencies can be felt and heard by the audience. Other program modules are a.o compositions  by Michiel Mensingh, Wouter Snoei and Matthew Shlomowitz exploring our bodily relation with sound and frequencies and performances of Cymatical.  

Human Body premiered at the Concertgebouw in 2014 and consists of program with compositions by Arvo Part, Wouter Snoei, Michiel Mensingh, Matthew Shlomowitz and performances by Cymatical and Mark Bain’s The Archisonic. With 2 new compositions by Wouter Snoei and Michiel Mensingh, Human Body will tour in 2016-2017.
