This interview of Edwin Van der heide was published in our Live A/V special issue (available on MCD shop online) dedicated to audio-video performances.
Can you tell us about your background, your influences and artistic references?
I have studied Sonology at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. After the study I have developed a strong interest in expanding the term composition into composing space, composing environ- ments and composing interaction.
I’m especially interested in researching and using the spatial properties of diffe- rent (physical) media.
How would you describe the video/audio dimension of your work? How do you go about composing and diffusing your work? Do you consider audio/video performances to be a (new) artistic discipline in their own right?
In LSP I’m taking direct relationships between sound & light (not 2d projec- tion) as starting point. I would call it a performance that establishes a dynamic architecture by means of light and sound. The audience is right in the middle of a transforming space. This new space has both references to physical space and more abstract shapes that refer less to space as we know it. Currently it might seem that A/V performances form a separate discipline. I believe however that there are so many different possible forms that you can not speak about one disci- pline. What is happening now will develop in many different directions.
