Strijbos & Van Rijswijk created Latitude’s very own green cathedral of tranquillity. Step out of the busy buzzing crowds to the calming contemplative place that is Signal. Using long throw speakers, unique resonating panels and live voice, Strijbos and Van Rijswijk transformed the forest.

“Signal at Latitude” immersed visitors in sound that they could control with their own interactions with this installation. Their movements controlled what they heard; the soundscape changed what they felt; the sounds stimulated their senses to see their surroundings differently.

Visitors experienced Strijbos & Van Rijswijk’s installation “Signal at Latitude” continuously during the festival. Twice each day, four sopranos performed live, interacting with the invisible choir of our green cathedral. These performances were made in situ in collaboration with artist Rita Hoofwijk.
