Edwin van der Heide
Edwin van der Heide (1970) is working as autonomous artist in
the field of sound, space and interaction. His original background
is in electronic music. He graduated from the Institute for Sonology
at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague in 1992. His current work
is hard to define in the traditional terms of music, sound art or
media art because he is permanently working on the edge and the
characteristics of the used medium. In this sense the medium does
not just mediate but is being explored, redefined, and finally composed
with a musical approach involving a new communicating language.
The fact that qualities of musical language are being used in development
of the work does not mean that the presentation form of the work
is related to the concert form known in music. The result can either
be an installation, a performance or an environment.
