Simeon ten Holt – Canto Ostinato
(1923-2012) by Canto Ostinato Audio Visual
Canto Ostinato Audio Visual is an audio-visual performance with harp, electronica and visuals, based on the groundbreaking composition ‘Canto Ostinato’. Gwyneth Wentink (harp), Wouter Snoei (electronica) and Arnout Hulskamp (visuals) respond to each other on stage using their instruments and selfdeveloped software, determining who takes the lead according to the codes of ‘Canto Ostinato’.
Canto Ostinato Audio Visual takes place on the fascinating intersection between music, visual art and technology, and provides a unique experience for all the senses. Interaction and improvisation are the foundation of the composition; every performance is different.
This revolutionary arrangement of Canto is an ode to the famous Dutch composer of minimal music, Simeon ten Holt

Gwyneth Wentink – Style Wars
Wouter Snoei graduated as Master in Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague. He took his first steps in the music scene as a dance producer, earning him De Grote Prijs van Nederland (Dance) in 1997. As a composer of contemporary electro-acoustic music he worked with ensembles like Calefax Reed Quintet, VocalLAB, Slagwerk Den Haag, and received the Matthijs Vermeulen Incentive Prize for young composers. Snoei is a renowned performer and sound-director of electronic works by composers such as Luigi Nono and Pièrre Boulez.
He developed the software of the internationally acclaimed Wave Field Synthesis system of the Game of Life Foundation, a revolutionary system that allows sounds to ‘travel’ through a space in an entirely new way.

Arnout Hulskamp (1978) studied at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and made a name for himself with his Open Wound software, which enabled him to compose expressionist glitch video. His original work resulted in a residency at TrouwAmsterdam and performances worldwide. With his platform for (interactive) light and video installations, aaiqu (all art is quite useless), he worked for clients like TEDxAmsterdam, the Zuiderzeemuseum and Rabobank. Since 2013 Hulskamp has been collaborating with Christopher Gabriel using the moniker Children of the Light, creating abstract and highly spherical scenographies using decor, light, haze, reflections and animations. Insiders characterized their work as game changing. Hulskamp was twice awarded the Gouden Reiger award.
