Performances: start at 19:00
For SAND SONGS a group af artists is invited to imagine this landscape as if it is a musical instrument, played by the natural elements and by human intervention. The artists developed performances and musical compositions especially for the landscape of the Zandmotor. In a series of short and longer interventions, they make use of sound, light, the wind, water flow and the sand in new and inventive ways. Flying a kite becomes a new way to make electronic music; home made pulse jet motors generate a composition on the scale of a landscape; there are kinetic wind and light sculptures; a soundwalk guides you along as you walk blindfolded, and you can take part in a musical treasure hunt, searching for sounding objects buried in the sand.

THE ELEMENTS LAB:
ROYAL ACADEMY OF ART
Starting September 2015 until May 2016 Satellietgroep engages with lectors, students and experts to enhance the scope of artistic fieldwork on the Zandmotor as part of the Interfaculty ArtScience program.
ArtScience offers an interdisciplinary bachelor’s and master’s programme that fosters curiosity driven research as an approach for the making of art. The Elements is an outside coastal lab situated along the North Sea at the Zandmotor south of The Hague. What does it mean to work in a dynamic intertidal environment, where the tides are dictating time and seasons are close to our skin? The lab has a phenomenologist approach, stimulates students to play, wander, explore and focus on elements in their own way, where also their own sensorial body in relation to this dynamic landscape can be considered as an element.
