NEW CHAIR-PERSON

Emil De Waal will replace Hanne Boel as chair of the board from 2023-2025.

Hanne Boels has been invaluable, as she has contributed with extensive inputs during the institution’s start-up phase. Emil De Waal has in addition to his career as a drummer and composer, been appointed to several cultural committees and boards. He will thus be able to contribute both professional and strategic advice to Resonating Rooms.

SLAUGTERHOUSE – VIDEO

Watch the documentation from a mini-festival, curated by Resonerende Rum and held in the former slaughterhouses in Holstebro.

The festival took place over three days in June 2024. Composer and woodwind player Lars Greve had transformed the old blood tubs into  sounding wells that amplified the music from the four performances. Fragments from all of these were embedded as a sounding memory in the tubs, and an uncontrollable interplay between the performers arose. The concerts were:

Friday evening: Lars Greve solo
Saturday noon: The choir from Holstebro’s Industry and Craftsmen’s Association
Saturday evening: MGK MidtVest
Sunday dinner: Ensemble MidtVest

During the concerts, the audience moved around, to feel, hear and see the music unfold. 

A heartfelt thanks to all performers and the Slagteriet for their committed participation.
And thanks to Holstebro Municipality and the Statens Kunstfond for kind support.

THE LITTLE IMPROVISORS

Resonating Rooms is running several people-pertinent projects in the municipality of Holstebro Kommune. An attempt to create workshops which gives selected citizens the power of action. Citizens which usually do not see themselves as a part of cultural activities. It’s a way to reach out, cultivate and create connections across social borders.

One of these projects is “The little improvisors”. It takes place a the local library, and is run by Lis Raabjerg Kruse. At the first meeting 6 persons showed up – the next time it was 60. Lis is both a musician and author about oral improvisation.  She uses her multifaceted expertise in improvisation to play the parents and kids. She makes music that stimulates the little ones, while their parents gains musical self confidence from playing and getting advice on how valuable and useful the art of improvising is.

Point of You

“Point of You” is  a new series of public sound installations, about how life sounds from a specific perspective.

The first perspective in this series are the students from “Sprogenheden”. Throughout the last year, Resonating Rooms has tought children in improvisation at “Sprogenheden” in Holstebro – a public school for children who had to flee. Together with the oldest class, we have made a piece of music which shares their sonic point of views. Layers of field recordings and improvisations have been mixed together, creating a 10 minute long piece.

The Sound installation will be installed in a shopping stores window in the middle of Holstebro – inviting all kinds of people to experience another point of view.

You can hear it every full hour between 08:00-20:00 from 17.06.2022-01.07.2022 at Nørregade 13 – in the middle of a shopping street in Holstebro.

Høst – review

Quote from review of HØST:

The fact that the whole stage becomes a kind of speaker for the music’s drumming, on the other hand, works very effectively in AUTUMN, just as the dancers also literally sit down and drum on stage. Music, body and movements merge completely, as the dancers’ bodies have to move on and with the bouncing speaker stage. Classical dichotomies dissolves” – Mette Garfield

The sound consists of recordings from projects and experiences they shared. It starts over every  hour.
