Sewer Festival in Hilversum (NL),
idea and organized by Willem Davids

PRESS RELEASE & [UPD]

The media city of Hilversum will soon stage a world first: The Sewer festival!
It’s a unique sound project that can be heard at street level from the city sewer system.

From 18 to 21 May 2005 sound will be heard coming from the drains in town center.
During the four-day period the city of Hilversum will expand in size and activity with the addition of an acoustic subway network, including subway stations, subway musicians, and many ear-opening sounds.
This will be the very first performance of its kind.
It has been given the name ‘rioolFest©H’sum2005’. (Riool=Sewer in Dutch)


(Click the Pic to go to the Web Site of ‘rioolFest’)

The rioolFest©H’sum2005 sound project is the brainchild of sound artist Willem Davids, who is also responsible for making it happen.
“The sound source, the heart of the festival, is a purpose-built speaker assembly that is placed in the sewers main pipe.
Sounds in this pipe must travel their way out of sewer system by rising to all connected sump grates at street level. The grates act as sound speakers through the open surface water system. It’s that simple, but very out of the ordinary at the same time.“

Media city with a special sewer system
Willem Davids (52) is a Hilversum radio maker with 30 years of experience who also makes documentaries for ‘RVU-Educational Broadcast Organization’. His love of sound, his craving to experiment and the character of Hilversum (city with a special storm water sewer system), are the main sources of inspiration for this project.
Davids: ”It’s no coincidence that the festival is held in the centre of Hilversum, or rather, rising from the city centre. I live here and it’s the media city.”

According to Davids the sound project can be experienced in different ways.
“Firstly, the shopping public will be taken by surprise when they hear sounds emerging from the pavement. Or you could pause to listen around one of the many sump grates, to enjoy an imaginary grand subway station and everything that goes with it.”
Davids sees possibilities for sewer festivals all over Europe.

The rioolfestival ‘rioolFest©H’sum2005’ is being supported by the Hilversum Council. The Council is also providing help with the publicity and technical support.


You’re invited in May. Let me know!!!

what a crazy and marvellous idea!!!!!! I like it. I hope I could be there and get this experience.
For me (also) the key words are: suprise, bewilderment, joy, not to be too serious, have fun….. and to do it with sounds and emotions…What kind of sounds are you planning to present? Soundscapes, stories, just sound effects….? I would be interested to hear more..

Take care.

Dear Willem: 

I found out about Rioolfest from the EBU posting. I’m an affiliate producer in the U.S. 

I’m attaching the score of “Bad Marriage Mantra.” Maybe you’d like to organize a Dutch translation/performance at some point? 

I’m very happy to send you the CD to use in any way you see fit. The CD is better quality than the MP3 on ubuweb. Please let me know your address and I’ll send you a copy. In fact, I’ll send you a couple of my other CD’s too, just for laughs! 

If you’d like to trade recordings, I’d very much like to hear your work too. Especially if you do any soundtext, soundpoetry type of work. I’d like to consider any text-based work for my CD label softpalate. 

Thanks!

Dear Erik,
Many thanks for your submission idea
I’ve listen to it via ubunet, it’s a great ” sound spectacle”.I like the idea to’ stream’ “Bad Marriage Mantra.” by rioolfest. A fight in the sewer.

But -it’s my feeling- The hole piece it’s to much English for here in this Dutch village with 99% Dutch public only. I hope you’re understand that feeling.
But I can imagine using one-minute parts mixed in a subway-train-station-setting (subwaysounds is my basic idea for this rioolfest) . What do you think?

Any way, many thanks for your support.

Stay tuned

And I like your vision: ‘Internet is just the latest incarnation of the sewer!’ YES!

Dear Willem Davids: 

I would like to submit an installation piece for Rioolfest. The piece is called “Bad Marriage Mantra.” It is available on CD and has been done as an installation several times. 

You can hear it in MP3 form on ubuweb at: http://www.ubu.com/sound/belgum.html 

If you’d like me to send a CD, please let me know.  This marital fight really does sound nice as an installation. 

Rioolfest sounds like a tremendously interesting project. I believe that sewers (and irrigation systems) represent the first incarnations of the Internet! (Or else the Internet is just the latest incarnation of the sewer!) 

Thank you.

Elections’ rules.doc

2- Updates on Workshops at the IFC

Updates on Workshops at the IFC:

– “Drama Meets Documentary”, by Peter Klein (ORF/Austria)

Everybody wants it but nobody does it. The interesting space between drama and documentary is wide open and empty. Do we actually just broadcast according to our organization structure? Is it only because the documentary and the drama departments are different units? Or are there other reasons as well? This workshop tries to give some answers. Since we are in Romania, we will present a docudrama which reflects the events of the Christmas holidays in 1989, when Nicolae Ceausescu and his Communist dictatorship were toppled.

– “Recording Techniques”, by Kare Johan Lund (NRK/Norway)

An insight into the techniques used when making radio documentaries in Norway.
A practical introduction to the MS microphone technique, field recording and monologues – what, how and why.
Some ideas and tricks in studio editing. Ways to put monologues on top of scenes. Ways to get effectively from one scene to the next – cut and fading.

We will look at some microphones, listen to examples, discuss means and experiences in the group.

– “Key Moments”, by Bosse Lindquist (SVT/Sweden)

“My documentary projects tend to have a central dilemma as the starting point. It almost never begins by me finding an interesting person. Rather, I decide on a particular aspect of life – politics, history, science – that interests me, and which I then start to investigate. I do a lot of research, and as part of this research I go out looking for people who have faced these particular predicaments and who therefore might fit the documentary brief…”

– “The Romanian Experience”, by Mihaela Helmis and Colleagues (ROR/Romania)

Outline to be announced soon…

I wish all a Happy Easter !
Kind regards,
Laurent Marceau
