Het Geheim van Horst
Horst Rickels


A woodpecker’s tapping against a tree is surely one of the most amazing sounds in a wood. Listeners try to locate the bird by tracing the direction of the sound. Every fifteen minutes during the day, this installation creates a sound game of woodpecker noises in the trees, leaving the audience uncertain whether it is real or an artistic interference.

Het Geheim van Horst only works between 8.00 and 19.00.

Composer, performer, graphic artist and tutor Horst Rickels (DE) creates works around the instable component of sound processes. He designs new instruments and multimedia projects.
