Am I hearing this right? Voices take control of space, while creeping up along floors, walls and ceiling. In ‘Vox’, sound artists Rob van Rijswijk and Jeroen Strijbos unleash a true vocal pandemonium.
In VOX, trained singers use the acoustics of a church space. Electronic sounds and effects bring out essential nuances and result in a tension filled with sounds. At one point, the music is coming from all sides. From that moment on, you are the center of the spatially constructed composition. Vox is a composition of Rob van Rijswijk and Jeroen Strijibos. In cooperation with Muzieklab Brabant, Van Rijswijk and Strijbos executed the project Air Sensible (accordion and live electronics).
Internationally renowned, the duo enjoys diverse sound installations including SoundsSpots. Vox is especially composed to be performed in churches. With the integration of local soundscapes, every performance is a unique, sometimes religious experience.

Signal in Kaunas
Kaunas in Lithaunia is Cultural Capital in 2022. In August we perform our landscape opera Signal the last weekend of 3 weeks ConTempo festival in the city heart, inviting people to go out in the rural countryside and experience this work.
The first weekend of July Neumünster Abbey houses the Rocking Chairs for a young audience at the Big Bang Festival, a festive ode to adventurous music and sound art.
Signal in Groede
At the core of this work is the connection between audience, sound and music, and the market square located in the old center of Groede, located in West Zeeland Flanders.
A Landscape That Is Us
We are very honored to be featured again at this wonderful festival with our new project 'A Landscape that is Us'. A new immersive experience in which we combine several techniques we developed for our deep practice in creative placemaking investigating and experimenting with sound, space and public engagement.
Signal at Dusk
For the Norfolk and Norwich Festival we have composed a new live performance version of our landscape opera Signal. Beginning at dusk our 4 sopranos lead the audience along the shoreline bidding farewell to the sun on the horizon and signalling the arrival of the night.
Great Yarmouth beach will be transformed with sound. S&VR’s bespoke digital technology and twenty long throw speakers create a unique audio experience enabling visitors to the installation to experience the vast seascape afresh and in their own way.
