Fly Target Fly/Sound Installation
Bruys explores the possibilities of sound as a medium in the visual arts. She believes sound has the power to free listeners completely of place and time taking them into an endless world without friction. The soundtrack of the “Fly Target Fly” installation contains sound recordings of frequencies gathered by Bruys during a parachute jump high in the air. These sounds, which cannot be heard by ear, are the basis of a composition which can be heard through headphones especially designed by Bruys for this purpose.
Nathalie Bruys― Artist

She is sound-art curator and performs as a DJ. Nathalie Bruys explores the possibilities of sound as a medium within the context of the visual arts. She believes that the intrinsic power of sound can completely transcend the listener from time and place into an eternal world. Bruys works with a broad sound pallet: from down to earth sampled sounds out of her daily surroundings to digitally generated bleeps and peeps, from a punch on an empty shoebox to cristal clear chimes and her own voice. She merges and manipulates all these aspects intuitively into new physical environments and sound experiences where friction and harmony go hand in hand.
