Landscape choir by Strijbos & Van Rijswijk and Marc van Vliet

Solar panels designed by Marc van Vliet transform into a harmonious ensemble in this interactive installation powered by self-generated energy. Strijbos & Van Rijswijk's composition sounds where choral voices and strings merge. Walk among the panels, take a seat and admire the individual singing voices.

The weather is an important co-player in this installation. Where the sun brings the installation to life, dark clouds reduce the sound to a whispered silence.

Soprano Panorama (2021) is one of Strijbos & Van Rijswijk's earlier art projects on Oranjewoud Festival
