Zeno van den Broek
Zeno van den Broek is a Dutch-born, Copenhagen-based composer and artist. His work is focused on space, time and architecture. Zeno works in a multi-sensory way to research and express notions of spatial awareness. He works with immaterial and temporal means such as sound, acoustics and visual arts to create site and concept specific works. With this interdisciplinary way of working he is able to comprehend and express the richness and complexity of spatiality. Zeno works with pure sound sources such as sine waves and white noise and minimal visual aesthetics such as grids and lines, creating site-specific patterns of interference and fully expressing the characteristics of the space.
In his compositions he explores the relation between musical forms, structures and auditive spatiality, drawing inspiration from architecture, mathematical and physical concepts.
Van den Broek’s live performances combine and synthesize the visible and the audible. Sound and projections merge with the existing architecture of the venue, creating a new spatial layer in which the position of the auditor alters his or her experience.
His installations are often location-specific, utilizing and intensifying the existing visual and acoustic qualities of the site.
Zeno van den Broek has been commissioned work by Non-Fiction, Gaudeamus Foundation and The Old Church of Amsterdam.
He has presented work at various venues and festivals such as Incubate Festival, Fiber Festival and Gaudeamus Muziekweek.
