Composing audio pieces for new work
In my residency at Kedai Kebun Forum in Yogyakarta early 2020 I researched the possibilities for a new performance / intervention in public space. Back in Amsterdam I applied for Development Budget at the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK) to work with composer Sinta Wullur in writing sound compositions for the new work. The grant has been awarded mid October 2020. Updates about this project will follow soon.
