Installation ‘Soundscapes Amsterdam‘ (March 28 – December 28, Amsterdam Museum)Amsterdam Breitner

The interactive sound installation is the result of a joint effort of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences of Maastricht University, the Amsterdam Museum and the American acoustic consultancy firm HMMH. FASoS Professor Karin Bijsterveld played an important role in the initiation and development of this unique installation. The installation is in fact an outcome of the NWO funded research project Soundscapes of the Urban Past: Staged Sound as Mediated Cultural Heritage. PhD candidate Annelies Jacobs who is involved in this project, has done historic research on sounds in Amsterdam which served as input for the installation. Dr. Alexandra Supper has been a key person in coordinating the contacts between HMMH, the Amsterdam Museum, sound recordist Arnoud Traa, and the many museums, actors, students and others involved in this project.
