Fashion department of Gerrit Rietveld Academie has asked me to produce the sound score again for the graduation year. I’m honoured and because last year was so amazing! This year’s setting is on a spectacular location and the assigment is also ncluded to use the space / echo within the sound track for the fashonshow. So basically am designing in two ways, 1) for the 11 graduates, 2) for the building, i’m so excited for this conceptual project that is really what I love to do. More info on tickets etc on the event page.
The Gerrit Rietveld Academie fashion department presents Carlynn Armour, Anne-Rixt Guest, Katja Hannula, Jurjen van Houte, Fien Ploeger, Marcel Kröpfl, Marije Seijn, Tijme Veldt, Simon Lextrait, Klára Valkova and Mikolaj Kocon. The Rietveld Academie challenges its fashion students to approach their subject in an open and experimental way, to study fashion in relation to the human body, to explore boundaries and not be afraid to cross them. The Fashion Show is the result of a creative, personal and authentic learning process in which the students each develop their own visual language and vision.

I’d like to send out special thank you to: Kim Vos (BDifferent) Art & Catwalk Direction. Py Tswang-Jin, Head of Production, and Niels Klavers (Head Fashion Department Gerrit Rietveld Academie) for requesting an abstract sound score for this show. All the graduates, it was a great pleasure, good luck to you all! Nienke Doekes for making photos, can’t wait to see them. Eric Lake for filming, I’m very curious! Also special thanks to Oubys (Wannes Kolf) for sending me exclusive material for an echo space, this worked so good. And Boul Bouwmeester for the beautiful piece of ambient “Funny Setting”, it was not too loud, just perfect.

Hholyblogspot: ” The music throughout the whole show was like one extremely extense song. It was mixed in such way so that each designer showing could translate the vibes they wanted the crowd to feel, but still seem like the show was one big fashion performance under the same music, so: same but subliminally different.“
