In the residency series Extratool, Extrapool will hand over its sound studio to a musician or (sound) artist for a few days. This person then invites a colleague to collaborate on two new compositions. At the centre of this series is Yuri Landman's range of instruments: string and percussion instruments on which coloured dots indicate harmonic divisions that deepen and colour the various sounds. From the 14th till the 17th of May 2020 SOON was the first one to accept this invitation.

'Yuri is an artist that builds and presents complex string divisions on pinewood fretboards. He explains his theoretical explorations in a playful way with coloured dots on the board. We decided not to follow these graphic scores, but to let the instruments inspire us and research their specific character. How could we specify their sound and combine them with our improvisations? It turned out to be difficult to tune the instruments: they reminded us more of measuring tools. In the end we used that association as a strength for ‘The inventor Dreams’. We got excited over the (micro)tonal space that arose within the various sounds of the strings. These we sampled and layered, until an interesting composition arose.

Garden of the Future’ starts from the idea of an ongoing pulse with a lot of space for our noise around it, noise that is abrasive and seductive at the same time. We were curious as to how the constructed sound would combine with the timbre of human voice and sampled a phone conversation with Ibelisse. Combining Yuri’s instruments with our own synthesizers and guitars is our attempt to tell a poetic story that passes by like a dream.

SOON is Liu Mottes and Jochem van Tol
SOON is in search of the audible life around tone, noise and rhythm. They make music that embraces the vibrations in each moment and adds layers to it; Music as an increased attention for the (im)possible.
