Edwin van der Heide, A World Beyond the Loudspeaker during the BIAS Sound Art Exhibition, Taipei, 2005

Edwin van der Heide is an artist, composer and researcher in the fields of sound, space and interaction. He expands musical composition and musical language in spatial, interactive, and interdisciplinary directions. His often site-specific, highly immersive installations don’t just take up space: they are a very deliberate inquiry into space itself and into its affordances as an artistic medium and material. Edwin’s pieces create space, modifying its actual and perceived boundaries. They make space present, apparent, and even tangible. They are carefully designed explorations of a host of physical phenomena—from vibrations in water to electrical sparks—, which evoke a sense of wonder through highly situated experiences and bodily kinesthetics, frequently inviting the audience to become an active part of the piece.

In this podcast, we talk to Edwin van der Heide about art in public space, air pressure, sounds under water, loudspeakers, networks, odd spatial experiences, and sonic phenomenology.
