This exhibition offers to discover Overtoon a platform for research, production and distribution of sound art and media art based in brussels through the works of Flemish artists Aernoudt Jacobs and Jeroen Uyttendaele.
Visceral and compelling for Vonkveld 3 ( Sparks fields), aerial and subtle for Induction Series # 4 based on electromagnetism, this two sound and sculptural installations combine technology and ingenuity and have in common to use electricity as an artistic medium.

Fieldrecordings and applications
University of Agder
Kristiansand, Norway
21 oct > 24 oct 2015

In the frame of the exhibition 'Once also this was a mutation'. The workshop deals with methods for recording in the field and creating ways to diffuse those recordings throug the installation 'Phantom Melodies'. The workshop is focussed on hands-on experiences.

Heliofoon / Heliophone
solo exhibition
Listen to the sound of... the sun.

On the occasion of the first public presentation of Heliophone , a collection of objects and design principles of Jacobs based on the photo-acoustic principle is presented in the STUK Verbeeckzaal. Operational prototypes functioning with laser or LED lights, stand next to a DIY chopper and a selection of parabolic mirrors. Jacobs sheds light on the different design components; from lenses and choppers to photo-acoustic cells and horns in different materials and sizes. Plans and drawings further clarify the thought processes and design decisions made.

different locations

Aernoudt Jacobs is researching electroactive polymers and other metamaterials in collaboration with EMPA (Zurich) and Liquid Things (University of Applied Arts in Vienna) . Initially Jacobs wants to conduct an investigation into a speaker that can take different shapes and can act simultaneously as an artificial sound filter. Electroactive polymers are materials that change shape as it gets supplied with electricity, and are also referred to as artificial muscles. The following months Aernoudt is doing different research sessions at EMPA and Liquid Things.

Currently in development:
