The oeuvre of artist Allard van Hoorn maneuvers between architecture, sound and visual arts.

He stages the performance ‘A Vesper Songline,’ an ode to Alvin Lucier. The performance takes a sound photograph of the space with the help of the audience who navigate by ear, i.e., without seeing, through the room with SONDOLs (Sonar Dolphin Echolocation devices). The artist translates the sound profile recorded this way into live music with an Urban Songline as result.
