Recently, Film Rescue International has been working with The Discovery Channel on a segment for the show "the Daily Planet" about the company and unique work that they do. Along with the huge amount of work they get from families cleaning out estates after a death in the family, they also work with artist who are interested in shooting expired film for a specific look.

Leigh Anne Parry and Anders Swanson

















Leigh Anne Parry is a performance artist, theatre director, sound artist, technician and researcher. Recent experiments have focused on stimulating audience imagination - breaking regular cognitive patterns and theatrical conventions to allow for pure thought. By considering and adjusting the motion, space and time of an audience’s experience, she has been developing a new relationship between the audience and the spectacle, helping to explore themes of transportation, wilderness and the anthropocene.

Anders Swanson is a painter, multi-media artist, transportation policy analyst, designer and community organizer who focuses on social consciousness turnover and the international reintroduction of humane forms of transportation. His recent work has involved winter, children’s mobility, gamification, crowdsourcing and storytelling. He aims at an understanding of the hydrology and psychology at play in the development of rivers of people.

Inspired by work, circumstances and situations developing constantly inside the cultural hubs and outside on the streets of Den Haag, their research plan includes sound and video recording, movement, data collection, comparative analysis, and composition.

They see the International City of Peace and Justice as an ideal place to shift perspective - in a sense traveling though both time and space - and an opportunity to immerse themselves in research on culture, transportation, art, science and social dynamics.

Pedalling SeaSides will be specially composed for the dune parks around Kijkduin. Inspired by these surroundings sound artist Kaffe Matthews will place specific sounds in the landscape to be discovered riding a Sonic Bike. Sonic Bikes are specially designed bicycles fitted with loudspeakers and a GPS based audio engine that make music and sounds that change dependent on the place and speed of the cyclist.

The Bicrophonic Research Institute (BRI) is an association that makes music and audio landscapes to be triggered and played by you the cyclist. Not an app and free of the internet, it creates an outdoor listening experience for all, the antithesis of headphones. Launched as an association by Matthews  in 2014, the BRI works collectively from a London lab creating open source hard and software applications whilst facilitating the growth of independent sonic cycling hubs worldwide. Currently these BRI hubs are active in Finland, Houston and Brussels, with Berlin underway for 2017.

In March 2015 Quiet Ensemble will be the first guests of the artist residency program organized by the artist-run platform iii in cooperation with Satellietgroup and Studio Loos, which will host 9 guest residents working in the field of experimental music, sound art and media art throughout 2015.

For those interested in meeting our guests, Quiet Ensemble will also offer a dinner and artist talk at Studio Loos on March 19th at 18:00.

About Quiet Ensemble:
The research of Quiet ensemble goes through the observation of the balance between chaos and control, nature and technology, creating subjects that perfectly merges the those elements, elements that take form from the relation of organic and artificial subjects, moving the attention to insignificant and wonderful elements, like the movement of a fly or the sound of trees. The interest is connected to those technologies that explores the aesthetic and conceptual possibilities deriving from interactivity techniques, apProaching the newest technological discoveries as if they would be the tools for creation, like the brush for the painter. Working on the relation between time and space, sound and image the work of Quiet ensemble changes and develops in time, relating to the space, changing it. Emphasizing the unespected events, refuting the apparent immobility of shapes and melting the appearing opposition of forces in nature. Concrete and abstract shapes are sectioned and remodeled in hybrid forms and balances, parallel giving great importance to the pure aesthetics of forms. Quiet ensemble is born in 2009 from the meeting between Fabio Di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli.

Dancer Sooraj Subramaniam




Review in Volkskrant 16-02-2015

Sooraj Subramaniam is dancer and performed in Tightrope Walker by Kalpana Raghuraman during Cadance Festival at Korzo 

Kalpana Raghuraman, who grew up in the Netherlands but is also deeply rooted in the Indian culture, presents a double-bill of contemporary Indian dance. Tightrope Walker was created specially for Sooraj Subramaniam, one of the best performers of Indian dance in Europe. In this modern solo, a man escapes from his suffocating environment, in which the eye of the other is ever-present; always judgemental. Even if that ‘look’ only really exists within you.

Composer/performer/sound artist Yamila Rios













Yamila Ríos is currently resident at DCR Guestudios to prepare and perform:
During Cadance at Korzo The Hague: 'it is like a large aminal deep in sleep"
More information and program at http://www.cadance.nl/nl/producties/it-large-animal-deep-sleep
Concept Marina Mascarell, Yamila Rios | choreography Marina Mascarell | music, stage design Yamila Rios | dance James O’Hara, Yu-Fen Huang, David Essing | light design Loes Schakenbos | dramaturgy Luz Lassizuk | choreographic assistant Sandra Navarro.

Yamila Ríos is a Spanish composer, performer and sound artist based in The Netherlands. Her artistic practice deals with the creation of aural spaces. These ephemeral spaces are neither fixed nor constant, allowing them to unfold and change in time. Since time is a necessary parameter to explore space, her compositions focus on each aspect, time and space. Her pieces consist of multiple textures and masses of sounds, each of them with their own internal and complex activity.

She has worked on various projects and pieces, exploring the use of live electronics mixed with the sonic exploration of traditional instruments. As a performer, she has developed an extension of her cello by attaching different sensors to the body of the instrument.

Her works have been presented at festivals such as Sonic Acts Festival (Amsterdam), Arts Electronica (Linz), In-Sonora Festival (Madrid), Seoul International Computer Music Festival, STRP Festival (Eindhoven), Electrogals Festival (Portland), Today’s Art festival (The Hague) Kontraste Festival (Krems), Contemporary Music Festival (Sevilla) among many others.
Yamila holds a Bachelors and a Masters in Sonology form the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.
