With fifty different geometric shapes Floris Vanhoof creates an orchestra of speakers, the newest instrument in his growing collection around the research of our perception. The installation “Polyhedra” sends a cloud of sounds through space. The different volumes and spatial placement of the objects provide an intense listening experience: every speaker translates the sound differently. The spatial circulation of sound through the speakers, combined with the natural musical movements, take the audience on a voyage of sounds along the sculptures.

Floris Vanhoof combines homemade musical circuits and abandoned projection technologies for installations, expanded cinema performances and music releases, translating the one medium to the other to find how our perception operates and which new perspectives appear. His music was reviewed in The Wire and he performed at ISSUE Project Room (New York), Café OTO (London), Aural (Mexico City), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Donaufestival (Krems), Liquid Architecture (Melbourne), International Filmfestival (Rotterdam), Hangar Bicocca (Milano), Les Urbaines (Lausanne), Xing (Bologna), Electrónica en Abril (Madrid), Meakusma (Eupen) & Bozar (Brussels).
