About

Field recordist | Belgium

Stijn Demeulenaere is a sound-artist and field recordist. He holds degrees in sociology, cultural studies and studied radio at the RITCS, Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema and Sound. Stijn is attracted to sound because of its directness, its malleability, and its mystery. In sound he tries to unravel social structures, personal history and the unconscious imagination of people. He is currently working around the themes of the phenomenology of listening and the personal experience of sound. His work researches the relationship between identity, sound and listening. He develops installations, soundscapes and performances. Lately, Stijn has been increasingly involved with dance. Amongst others, he created soundtracks for choreographers like Marisa Cabal, Stav Yeini, and Veli Lehtovaara; and for theatre makers like Mesut Arslan and Pieter De Buysser. Together with Georgia Vardarou and Marisa Cabal he created the site specific performance Sonic Theatres. Other collaborations included directors and video artists Jan Locus and Visual Kitchen. His work was shown in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Denmark, Germany, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Austria and the UK.
