Paviljoen aan het Water, Brielselaan 157, Rotterdam
November – December 2017 | FB link residency

Mmths and Oyo have been alone together in Rotterdam and Vienna collaborating over the last few years. Their collaboration vary between multimedia performances, installations, browser extensions and short films. For the Aloardi artist-in-residence period at Paviljoen aan het Water, they will develop their project ‘Cranked Tapes’.


Matthias Hurtl and Yoana Buzova are working on an instrument. A bicycle module to record and play cassette tapes through the movement of the bike crank. This self-made tool will be used to record sounds in the district of Charlois, where the residency is located. Through a series of bike rides and workshops with locals from Charlois, Hurtl and Buzova will collect and map special sounds sites. Responding to the inhabitants favorite spots, a sound map will be created and result in a cassette tape publication, to be released in the end of the residency. The release will be an imaginary soundscape of Charlois, an audio translation of the map, the speed and dynamics of the biking, as it will be directly connected to the movement of the tape.

Йоана Бузова / Yoana Buzova is an interdisciplinary artist and educator, passionate about public space and short-lived, neglected moments and objects. She employs low-tech, DIY methods, found and re-purposed material to make useless urban in.ter.ventions that interrupt passers-by and engage them in temporary fictions. Yoana completed the Master’s Program at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
