Chartres, one hour of sound in a Gothic cathedral
Since some years I am working on descriptions of sounds in the cathedral of Chartres.
I divided a one-hour soundtrack – recorded years ago on a day that there were no ritual activities in the building – in 60 one-minute tracks and described each minute as objective and precise as possible without mentioning the sound sources.
I further tried to avoid onomatopoeias, music- and sound-technical words and expressions, poetic/impressionistic/expressive language, comparisons, metaphors, finite forms, names, Latin based words (unless there was no Dutch or English equivalent), explanations, assumptions, conclusions, considerations.....
Chartres is written in a language that rests after leaving out all tools and ingredients that are often used in describing sounds or other immaterial subjects. By these restrictions I forced myself into a deeper concentration on (and understanding of) sounds and words.
Thanks to financial support by Mondriaan Fonds, I will present the book in collaboration with Onomatopee Editions in Eindhoven in autumn this year.
The book will be printed by Lecturis in a Dutch and English edition of 250 copies each.

(May, birds, one hour before sunrise, one hour after sunset in
De Slibreeks, a series of small books by Centrum Beeldende Kunst Zeeland, has a long tradition. Each year three writers, poets or visual artists are invited to produce a book.
I was invited by Marinus van Dijke, one of the editors of the series, to create number 143.
My book is a two hour time table which I fill in with notations about the sounds of birds, as observed and described on the 7th of may, during one hour before sunrise and after sunset. The location for my observations is the coast of the island Schouwen in Zeeland, where the beach meets the bush.
The book will appear in september/october 2013 in Dutch language.
