For the last three months I have been working on urban audio environments, called “Ultrasonic City”. The first public shape this took on was in the form of an interactive installation.

They saw the installation in the exhibition of De Canvascollectie and they asked whether I wanted to display it during the Museumnight in the extraordinary location of the Middelheim museum.
