Metres-long piano strings, stretched through the Atrium and amplified by gigantic, polystyrene sound boxes. When struck, the strings get a vibration that travels along them like a wave, swelling in sound as it goes. Peter Jacquemyn and Jan Pillaert thus create an acoustic soundscape, Sigrid Tanghe and Klaas Verpoest the visual landscape. Long String(s) is transparent; physical movement qualities determine the music, ‘what you see is what you get’.
