Dadoc was modeled after pre-digital era archiving systems, which used cabinets to store data. All information you need, can be
Dadoc presents a world of adventurous triggers, in which various musical sources constitute a new whole. What rests in these cabinets are playfull and soothing sounds.
Melodiously spoken snatches of sentences and lines of thought, accentuated by electronically produced rhythm patterns, are the basic components of an electro-acoustic composition. By opening the doors of different cabinets the audience can isolate and filter distinct sound layers from the sonic complex that lies enclosed in the installation. Each visitor can discover new significance and associations that the Dadoc cabinets reveal in correlation. These cabinets provide storage for playfull sound and music.
The installation, conceived by the Swiss designer Christian Grässli and the Dutch composers and sound artists Jeroen Strijbos and Rob van Rijswijk, consists of ten woorden cabinets that are placed in a darkened room. Each individual Dadoc contains a loudspeaker. When a visitor opens a door, sounds emerge and the carefully designed loudspeaker becomes visible in the light shining inside the cabinet.Read all about this project
