A Sonically Open City (Job Oberman / Oceanic)

Programme

Oceanic (Job Oberman) has spent 2021 taking members of Ensemble Klang around the city of The Hague and filming and recording interactions with its sound world: from the forest to the beach, the highway to the concrete factory. All these elements are brought together in A Sonically Open City, a brand new, 50 minute long work from a musical voice that spans multiple genres, embracing multiple forms of music-making and a multitude of influences. Taken as a whole, the work forms a profile of The Hague, celebrating the diversity of its landscapes and natures, and charting the breadth of activity that continues to take place within it.
