For Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee 'De toekomst ligt in zee' has been mixed in stereo and cut into three episodes, which will be presented at 28 February, 1 March and 2 March at 21.00 hours

In the fall of 2016 De toekomst ligt in zee premiered at Galerie van Gelder in Amsterdam as a three channel sound installation. Artist and writer Stijn Verhoeff was invited by curator Vincent van Velsen to make an exhibition. Stijn Verhoeff was working on a book and asked sound artists Sjoerd Leijten and Malu Peeters to join in to develop a spatial installation. Together they made an hour long sound work, consisting of pieces of text intertwined with sound. The result is a dreamy and poetic, raw and harsh trip through an imaginary landscape. Drones, strange choirs and clouds of noises create a destabilizing trance, wild glitchy beats trigger a primitive state of alert, while the voices speak, hum, sing and form rhythmic patterns. The stories become paintings in time. Like in a film the listener travels to and through places he or she has not yet been before.

Best experience with headphones or on a proper hifi installation.
