Radioscape III - a project by Edwin van der Heide

There are fifteen transmitters installed around and on the Leidseplein 
in Amsterdam, each broadcasting it's own musical layer. Van der Heide 
designed a receiver that allows you to receive and mix the signals of 
two, three or more transmitters simultaneously.
At a certain moment you receive one transmitter the strongest, the 
second a bit softer and the rest might be inaudible. By walking through 
the environment the balance between the transmitters is changing, new 
ones are fading in while others are fading out. Van der Heide: "The city 
centre forms a musical labyrinth with different layers of sound that, 
together, form a meta composition. By moving you mix the different 
layers which lead to new combinations and interferences."


Radioscape is open from Thursday the 28th of October till (including) 
Sunday the 7th of november.


Radioscape is freely accessible for the audience. In order to borrow the 
receiver you have to deposit either 50 euro's or an id card. You have up 
to one hour to 'radioscape'
