Spectacular (urban)  sounds from the bell of a seven meter horn.
Created and composed by Luc Ex, designed by Peter Zegveld.
Roaring trains, sharp exchanges in a street market, throbbing lorry engines, boots strolling by swiftly and steaming construction sites are just a few of the sounds emanating from this immense horn. Together with its majestic shape, the horn shall reflect its surrounding area.
Times are changing, so are the noises. Objet Sonore focuses specifically on the sounds of the metropolitan area.

Objet Sonore is not only an artwork that looks for the boundary between noise and music and is now presented as a duo/improvisation with Luc Ex on electronics (urban-samples will be played live) and Ab Baars or Ada Rave on saxophone.  You will hear the beautiful sounds of a saxophones accompanied by the sound of falling trees, construction works, early morning birdsor a high speed train passing by.
Objet Sonore sees Luc Ex continuing a tradition of ‘Music Art’ and ‘Music Machines’ that has much in common with the work of artists such as Jean Tinguely, Moniek Toebosch and Dick Raaijmakers.
The horn can also be used as a “loudspeaker” of sorts.

en français: Le vrombissement des trains, les échanges animés sur le marché, les camions rugissants, les chantiers fumants, le claquement de bottines sur le sol. C’est, entre autres, ces sons qui font partie du répertoire de cette immense corne. En accord avec sa forme primordiale magistrale, l’ensemble fait agréablement écho à son environnement direct.
Objet Sonore se focalise spécifiquement sur les sons de la métropole et se presente maintenant comme duo/improvisation avec Luc Ex qui produit des bruit/ urban sounds et le son magnifique du saxophones de Adra Rave ou Ab Baars.

Objet Sonore n’est pas seulement une œuvre d’art qui questionne la frontière entre la musique et le son, mais elle fonctionne également comme un rappel des sons inévitables de notre économie frénétique.
