Soundpiece is a soundinstallation in the public space of the Schouwburgsquare in Rotterdam and covers an area of 30 by 30 meter through 32 speakers. It can be heard across the entire Schouwburgsquare at limited volume.

WORM invited the composers Machinefabriek, Pierre Bastien and Dyane Donck/Daisy Bell to compose a piece for this. The results are three soundartworks/tape compositions that are made for public space, but are impressive as isolated piece of art as well. Something that stands out as well, is the different approaches of the three composers.The pieces were played at fixed times at the Soundpiece installation, for a month at the end of 2011.

This resulted in 3 coloured vinyl records on WORM Records. These records are extraordinary not just because of their appearance (bright yellow, blue and pink vinyl), but because of their arising history as well.

Record 3 of the 3 is by Pierre Bastien

Pierre Bastien is very French, but for quite some time now lives in Rotterdam. His work finds its place on the secant of installations / robotica / visual arts on one side and soundart / jazz / improvisation on the other. Pierre is signed to the Rephlex label (the Aphex Twin playground) but also turns out projects for dozens of other labels whilst working in the realms of dance and theatre too.

Is a part of the Worm Studio's activities.

At a certain point, Simonis decided to continue the label and make it his own playground, allthough it is still related to Simonis' activities for the WORM SoundStudio. ... more
