Cloud Sounds Live Sessions and Workshops

2, 3, 4 and 5 March

2, 3, 4 and 5 March
During the 5 Days Off festival a number of live sessions and workshops are taking place at the NIMk.

On 2 March, at 6:00 p.m., there will be a free guided tour of the exhibition, followed by the departure of Benjamin Newland's Nomadic Sound System for Leidseplein, to the other festival locations.

On 3 March, beginning at 5:30 p.m., you can hear more about the development of two new on-line and mobile works produced for the festival: by Roel Wouters and Jonathan Puckey, and What would you whisper in a stranger’s ear? by We Are Forests (Emilie Grenier and Duncan Speakman). Duncan Speakman & Emilie Grenier are currently artists in residence @NIMk throughout March 2011. They are developing We Are Forests, a new mobile soundwork that explores intimacy in public spaces.

On 4 March, starting at 5:30 p.m., the promotors of |Cine|Sonic| tell more about the concept and the performances that take place during 5 Days Off. On the festival nights of 5 Days Off |Cine|Sonic| present legendary or almost forgotten avant-garde classics from the archive of the Eye Film Institute, with new versions of the original soundtracks performed live by trail-blazing Dutch musicians.
