OPUS MUD

1994

Musical performance in a floating soundfactory. 

In co-operation with Hans Belleman.

Performances during the Over het IJ-Festival in Amsterdam-Noord.

For Festival Karavaan, at several locations in the province of North-Holland: Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Medemblik, Den Oever, Den Helder and Alkmaar.  

The old dredging machine is anchored in the open water. Visitors arrive on a small sloop and are brought on board, then guided through the bowels of the steel monster.

It’s an acoustic labyrinth, with rattling mud containers, the rasp of scraping steel, and unfamiliar sounds emitting from the depths of the steel colossus, serenaded by musicians on brass instruments.
