Connecting Concepts Exhibit Music

Just finished the soundtrack for a traveling exhibition about concepts behind a series of differing Dutch Designs.
The exhibition is curated by Ed van Hinte. The shown designs share a range of processes which connects the different disciplines.
From Fashion to Airplane Design and from Type Design to a Sand Engine.
The exhibition will be traveling for two years from India, China, Germany and finally at the end of 2012 in The Netherlands.

The soundtrack

Eighteen different instrumental songs in 60 minutes total.
Ambient soundscapes build on Dutch environmental sounds. Rain, wind, changing tides, birds, windmills, a merry go round, ice skating, cycling.
Thanks to Rob Strengers for adding fizzy tenor sax melodies. Below you can listen to a collage of the songs.
