Als Muren Oren Krijgen 2007

Commisioned by Ratatouille.

Ratatouille was a trio musicians (Heleen Gerretsen Yvonne Hogt Pauline Kolsteeg) which set up a series of concerts celebrating special architecture. The underlying understanding is that to them architecture and compositions are very related works of art. In the project they played existing music and commisioned composers (Merlijn Twaalfhoven, Daan Manneke en Marco Kalkman) to write pieces for specific buildings they had selected in the Netherlands (radio Kootwijk, castle Huis Bergh, The Broeker Auction, Sanatorium Zonnestraal, the Zuiderbad in Amsterdam, Haarlem railwaystation waiting room, and Cruquius Steam pumping station). As part of the performance the selected architecture was introduced by showing short movies made by Jeroen van Westen. Rob van den Broek made paper-installations as an interactive decor for each location.
