30 March 2019, 14:00: Voices of Salt Water Skin

Genetic Choir is performing a special concert this Saturday in the Waalse Kerk, Amsterdam. Our voices will interweave with the architecture of the church and the art installation “Salt Water Skin Boats” by Canadian artist Erica Grimm.

De precaire balans tussen mens en natuur zoals verbeeld in de installatie ‘Salt Water Skin Boats’ van Erica Grimm kenmerkt ook de composities van het Genetic Choir. Deze creëren orde en betekenis vanuit chaos en klankwillekeur. De interactie tussen de zangers weerspiegelt zowel menselijke als natuurlijke processen en schept klankruimtes die even intiem als tijdloos zijn.

The performance is happening in collaboration with the Van der Leeuwstichting and is part of the Amsterdam-wide exhibition Art Stations of the Cross.

“Whatever it was, it was very good!”

surprised audience member after Elevator Music

“These sounds… some of them… I had to laugh, but it also did something to me. I really got this urge to fly!”

Midas Dekkers in reaction to the Insects Concert

“I have been listening full of of fascination to the Genetic Choir pieces. You appear to me as a vocal machine that is constantly searching, evaluating, probing, seducing, without any fear.”
