PASSPORT TO PARADISE

MANGOOSE x DAN FLAVIN​

The song "Passport to Paradise" was made for an educational composition project, called "Between Art & Kitsch". For this project we had to make a musical concept and composition responding to a static piecie of art. 

The track was inspired by the shown light construction, made by Dan Flavin in 1972.

Mangoose is a Dutch pop/rock duo, formed by Bradley Pigmans and me.

THE SAND ENGINE 

AN ALGORITHMIC COMPOSITION

INCLUDING SHEET MUSIC & EXPLANATORY PAGES IN DUTCH

This project was part of an algorithmic composition course where we had to translate raw data into music, through signification and audification. For this project I choose a peninsula called The Sand Engine, which is an experiment in the management of a dynamic coastline in front of the Dutch west coast. The data I used came from a chart which shown the quantities of sand the Sand Engine consisted of over a certain period of time.
