During Connector X STEIM will once more connect with The Pentacle 15.3. ‘The Pentacle’ is a powerful high fidelity mobile speaker system developed by Fedde ten Berge consisting of 15 self-designed loudspeakers and 3 self-designed subwoofers.
This time students of Sonology (Royal Conservatory of The Hague) will make a composition especially for the Pentacle.
The Pentacle originated from the desire to make sound art and enhanced live music a spatial experience. The Pentacle wants to offer artists and audiences an equal space to explore and meet the sound together. This is in contrast to a stage to watch from a distance.
The sound experience (and with it the musical experience) is the same for the artist and the audience. An arrangement with artists on one side of the audience and remote audience on the other side of the room is thus transcended.
To exploit the full potential of the Pentacle system, artists, musicians and performers are challenged in advance to think about how their instruments are spatially amplified. Or even prefer to customize their music in a spatial representation. This gives a chance for interesting new encounters and developments for both artists and audiences.
