‘Ground’ is an audiovisual performance in which de Vree and Uyttendaele use graphite drawings as a control interface for several electronic instruments, thus rendering the acoustic tactile.

‘Ground’ is an audiovisual performance in which de Vree and Uyttendaele use graphite drawings as a control interface for several electronic instruments, thus rendering the acoustic tactile.
Fascinated by ways of rematerialising an increasingly dematerialised and idealised world, their work can be seen as an attempt to approach electronic music in a more intuitive, engaging manner. Using graphite, a material that conducts electricity and is used in everyday variable resistors, they compose drawings that figure as the interface that controls the volume, pitch and amplitude of the piece. As the lines drawn stretch, intersect or encounter foreign conductive elements – such as the hand – the sound is either modulated or becomes warped.
The result is a performance that blends senses together or juxtaposes them, as it creates tension between the unpredictable, aleatoric qualities of the graphite and the order of lines that the performers impose upon it, which form the rudimentary ‘score’ of the piece.

This book presents a collection of 51 of these graphite drawings and is accompanied by a video recording of ‘Ground’ performed live by the artists at Studio Loos in The Hague.

Jeroen Uyttendaele (1981) is an artist interested in sound as a sculptural element and it’s relation to light, space, time and the viewer. This translates itself in the development of audiovisual instruments, installations and sound compositions. His works often exploite basic properties of technology such as electricity, metal, conductive materials as the main tools for expression. Jeroen studied Radio (Brussels), Artscience (The Hague) and followed a postgraduate course at the HISK (Higher institute of fine arts) in Ghent. He currently lives and works in Brussels.

Dewi de Vree (1983) is a multi-media artist based in The Hague, which deals with the sensual experience of physical experiments.
With a background in the visual arts and her fascination by the interaction between man and machine, she’s been making different translating-machines, sound interfaces, performances and installations. Examples of her work include works based on the physicality of electricity, electrochemistry, thermodynamics and electromagnetism.
At the moment she is working on new pieces for Magnetoceptia, a series of antenna-based costumes for performance and installation together with Patrizia Ruthensteiner.
Next to her art projects she is involved in experimental music venue ‘Villa K’ in The Hague, Instrument Inventors Initiative ‘iii’ and ‘Proefjeslab’, an interactive science show for children together with Arno Verweij.
