Naklank (direct translation: Aftersound) is a project by 3 soundartists, all graduated from the Music & Technology at the University of the Arts Utrecht. With the Naklank project we installed a sound installation on Fort Lunet I, for the benefit of the Grounded community (shared with Onderbuik). We used this sound installation for a spatial composition, in which different compositions and sounds will be heard over the different speakers. This installation is installed in the outdoor area of the fort, and also serves as a future tool for other artists to compose and exhibit for, as well as a broadcast/sound system for the community to use at other events. The sound system is built sustainably and can be used for several years with minimal maintenance.
The location offers a rare and inspiring place to create spatial compositions. We want to present a composition that shows what it sounds like when climate changeds excessively in the future. How does the world sound during the post-climate change era? We do not give the visitor a text about the seriousness of climate change, but let them feel it through sound. Because this composition will be heard outside, we hope that the visitor will be more in touch with nature and their surroundings while listening to our compositions.
The addition to the existing offer in the city
There is a small number of open air sound installations currently being used for artistic purposes, of which we are currently only aware of Janslicht on Janskerkhof square or Atelier LEK. We hope to use this sound installation to draw artisThere are a small select number of open air sound installations currently being used for artistic purposes, of which we are currently only aware of Janslicht op Janskerkhof of Atelier LEK. We hope to use this sound installation to draw artists and visitors out and introduce them to the green oasis of Lunet I and its cultural and sustainable communities. In doing so, we hope to draw more attention to the climate crisis in an artistic way. Furthermore, we make this installation available to local (starting) artists to experiment with spatial open-air composition. We expect to encounter many interesting concepts due to the contrasting green and concrete location of Lunet I.
We presenteren onze compositie en geluidsinstallatie op de noorder helft van het oude monumentale fort Lunet I. Bovenop dit fort heeft de natuur vrij kunnen woekeren over de jaren heen, waardoor er nu veel gras, planten en bomen staan. Hierdoor is Lunet I een groene oase in de nabijheid van de stad.
