'Theo van Doesburg'
Music by Kees Wieringa
Especially for this exhibition about Theo van Doesburg, Kees Wieringa has made two compositions for the Centraal Museum and the Kršller Mšller Museum. These compositions have been tuned to the spaces in which they are reproduced. The material on which the compositions are based is entirely in the Van Doesburg vein and consists of fragments of voices of Kurt Schwitters and, among others, musical fragments from the beginning of the twentieth century.
All texts used are
from Theo Van Doesburg and have been especially recorded for this composition.
The composition has been designed three-dimensionally. It is controlled
from a central computer and uses chance techniques. The utterly complex
software has been developed by MichŹl Koenders. During the exhibition,
a compact disc titled 'Theo van Doesburg' appears on the label of DO records
(DR 005) with a selection from the sound layer of the exhibition. This
compact disc is on sale exclusively in the musea!
