da-Y #3 - Crew cut

may 26, 2005.

beach cut
after effects

Upon arrival on the island, on monday morning, I wanted to get my hair cut. So straight from the boat we drove to Nes, the island's 'capital'. Unfortunately, the one hairdresser's (the kapsalon) in the village turned out to be closed on mondays ...

So, I asked Martin to cut my hair on the beach ... ("Coupe Beaufort")

No, one should not be afeard ... of the sound of the wind blowing on beaches, the many birds and sheep, the sea and church bells ringing ... The bells of the church just opposite the galery hardly stopped this wednesday ... When Peter finally went out to record them - for that might the one way to make them stop :-) - he ended up in the middle of a funeral.
A big funeral.
"Wat een grote begrafenis, h?", a man whispered in our mike. "Het is de wijkverpleegster, hier van het dorp ... Ze is oud geworden ... éénentachtig ..."

da-Y #2 - "The truth is out here"

may 25, 2005.

Wouldn't one believe in miracles? On the isle of Ameland again, at the same time and at that very same spot in Hollum - so remote, yet so surrounded - ... for the third year in succession ...

Yeah!

I decided to believe in miracles this week!

So did the other members of Park's Sand-Y team ... so did Martin Takken. Though somehow he felt that 'just believing is not enough'. Whence, during the first two days of the project, he took Park's HD camera out of our studio in galery Dit Eiland ... and set out to linger, by day and by night, on beaches, in fields and on dune tops. To register solid proof. That the truth indeed is out here ...

Well ... of course it is! It doesn't take much ... (The images to the left are three stills, from Martin's "Waargenomen 2005-05-23 17:32", and from "Onweer". They are part of the online selection of Park4DTV's 'Zandoog' work.)

0 ok, 0:1

Meanwhile the Raudio team, in its guise as 0 ok, 0:1, yesterday evening met up with vocal ensemble Vocalis, who were rehearsing in the church of Hollum's Nederlandse Hervormde Gemeente, just opposite galery Dit Eiland on the Burenlaan ...

My idea was to ask the ensemble to improvise using a text consisting basically in the band's name ("zero okay, zero:one") and its motto ("alles is goed, meer is beter"):

"nul .... oo! ... kee ... komma ... nul ... dubbele punt ... n

0 ok, 0:1
0 ok, 0:1
...
...
Alles is goed
alles
a-ah-ah-àààh- alles
alles
is goed

nul .... oo! ... kee ... komma ... nul ... dubbele punt ... n

beter
is
meer

a-ah-ah-àààh- alles
alles

is

goed"

koor

We crossed the road in heavy wind and rainfall, crossed the church's cemetery, carrying the choir-sized line-by-line text score meticulously prepared by Peter...

Eventually, we used but the score's first line. But who cares? For wasn't it a miracle at any count? ...

Under the direction of Gijsbert de Jong, Vocalis did a marvelous job.

It's all in today's - Raudio's second - Sand-Y podcast...

Oh yes! We do believe in miracles ...

Sand-Y da-Y #1

may 24, 2005.

on the boat

Yesterday early morning we sailed the Dutch wadden waves, crossing over on the 'Oerd' to the Isle of Ameland, for the third year in succession ... Once again this is a 'weak of the see', and Park4DTV is contributing to the 'ZandOog' ('Sand-Eye') project, which is part of archipel.nu, initiated by galery 'Dit Eiland' in Hollum.

On the boat we were met by a crew of the Frysian television, who are doing a short reportage on the project. Reason enough to improvise a short 'unplugged' session, on cracklebox, voices, and recorder, on the boat's deck. Much to the excitement of a class of Dutch kids on a school trip, who were crossing over with us. Well, obviously it was more the sight of cameras - and the idea of 'fame' :) they represent - which excited them. When asked what they thought we were doing, they replied that surely this must be "something for the sea gulls" ... have a look now at Martin Takken's short video report on this event ...

Park4DTV is testing and working with the new high definition, 16:9, video format. Meanwhile, Raudio this week will be editing a series of short Podcasts, to report on our daily sonic adventures. We will (hopefully) again work with musicians from the village fanfare, the 'Hollumer Gromkes', and - a premiere for this year - record with one of the island's choirs: Vocalis. On sunday we will host, just like last year, an 8 hour placard (from 16h00 until midnight local time). This will be one of the last 'prologues' to this year's 'international headphone festival', which officially will kick off on june 1st, in Montréal, at Mutek's ...
