Frits Maats & Nico van der Sman - Beweging -1982- (Tape), Netherlands
Quite some noise this post: Dutch artists Frits Maats & Nico van der Sman made this cassette called Movement (Beweging) which was actually an art project created in the Dutch village of Roden. The sounds you hear were recorded in a milk factory which was later dismantled. Then the sounds were played again in the empty factory and recorded which resulted in this tape. You can hear quite obviously that something conceptual is going on.
Frits Maats is an artist that explores the relation between fine arts and media, but also sculpture and music. He made a lot of video art during the eighties and also collaborated with Brian Eno. He is co-founder of the Amsterdam based interdisciplinary art and research centre Mediamatic. Mediamatic is a cultural institution dedicated to new developments in the arts since 1983. They organize lectures, workshops and art projects, focusing on nature, biotechnology and BioArt in a strong international network.
