Conceived and directed by Francisco López audio-DH is a collaborative project of epic proportions that weaves the sounds of 250 of The Hague’s creative minds into an exploration of the city’s vibrant sonic tapestry.
With the help of fellow composer Barbara Ellison and the artist platform iii, 50 curators were invited to rally the city’s creative community, gathering contributions from composers, experimental musicians, sound artists, noise makers etc.. in the broadest and most inclusive definition of contemporary sonic creativity. The response was outstanding, resulting in a collection of 195 tracks by 250 artists.
This collection is made available both in the form of an online edition on audiodh.nl and also as a physical edition, as a high capacity USB memory card, published by iii editions.
Furthermore, the contributions collected are used as material for new meta-compositions created by HARING (Humanless Audio Recombinator for Infinite Novelty Generation), a software designed by Francisco López together with Andrea Vogrig and Darien Brito.
Launched on September 22nd 2016 at Korzo theatre during TodaysArt festival with a concert performed by HARING, audio-DH will be presented further at various listening stations to be announced.
All the audio material collected and the software that was created for the project are released under Creative Commons licence and freely downloadable.
