Peter van Hoesen & Heleen Blanken "ADAPTIVE ENQUIRY No. 1"

The starting point for the work is the focus on the cause and effect of resonance. It aims at triggering a process of mutual assimilation, consuming and absorbance of the other subject as a whole. It deals with the friction between two elements, searching for the observable space in between. The visual part of this work is created in close collaboration with the Institute for Geosciences at the Utrecht University.

Peter van Hoesen is a Belgian electronic music producer, composer, DJ, live performer, and a key player in the Brussels electronic music scene. He has produced various styles of music but is best known for his bass-heavy, abstract take on techno with a psychedelic approach. He has developed a deep interest in surround-sound composition and spatial sound design.
