Kaffe Matthews for iii


Award-winning sound artist and composer Kaffe Matthews and the Bicrophonic Research Institute (BRI) will be in residence within the program organized by iii in cooperation with Satellietgroep and Studio Loos at the end of June to make a new interactive musical composition called Pedalling SeaSides.

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.

To experience Pedalling SeaSides you can pick up a Sonic Bike on Deltaplein 525 in Kijkduin between the 4th of July and the 2nd of August. See for more information: http://iiinitiative.org/news/sonic-bikes

Since 1990 Kaffe Matthews has made and performed new electro-acoustic music worldwide with a variety of things and places such as violin, theremin, wild salmon, Scottish weather, NASA scientists, Grand Union Canal, bicycles, hammerhead sharks, school children, desert stretched wires and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

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.
