Homage to Dick Raaijmakers at ICMC

After thirty years, the internationally renowned conference on computer music ICMC (International Computer Music Conference) is returning to the Netherlands. The conference is organised by Gaudeamus Muziekweek and HKU Music and Technology, and will be held in Utrecht from 12 to 16 September. On Tuesday September 13 ICMC invites Thomas Ankersmit & Tarik Barri for a special performance of 'Homage to Dick Raaijmakers' and 'Versum' at TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht. For this electronic music performance, sound artist and composer Thomas Ankersmit delves into the ideas and instruments of a Dutch titan of electronic music, Dick Raaijmakers (1930–2013). Ankersmit’s homage was commissioned for this edition of Sonic Acts Academy 2016 and premiered during the opening night at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. As a work of contemporary music in its own right, Ankersmit’s homage re-evaluates Raaijmakers’ concepts of sound, composition and spatial experience in a technologically more advanced era. Ankersmit mainly uses similar means as Raaijmakers: tone and noise generators, modulators, filters, mixers, amplifiers and speakers. However, instead of Raaijmakers’ usual method of editing with magnetic tape, Ankersmit uses computer software. Tarik Barri is an audiovisual composer based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Reflecting his interests in programming, drawing and composing into a coherent multimedial discipline, he developed and uses software that merges audio and visuals into a new audiovisual reality. Together with Monolake, Tarik Barri was part of Sonic Acts XIII: The Poetics of Space and took place in 2010. Tonight Barri will presents his solo multimedia work Versum. More information and tickets Homage to Dick Raaijmakers is commissioned by Sonic Acts Academy 2016. It will go on tour in the Netherlands and Belgium.
