Chanting Forest (pilot)

Time and attention are scarce. How do we actually distribute it amongst ourselves, others and all kinds of social issues that concern us? Chanting Forest is a composition in the making by Diederik Rijpstra who tries to find the answer to this question. You can read exactly how here. It’s a musical installation with a choir, in which you as an audience member walk through blindfolded.

Forest of singers

The choir is arranged in an area with the choir members placed about two metres apart. This creates a kind of forest of singers with enough space for you to move between them.


In this pilot, the composer researches three parts of the musical piece:

  1. Lux Silentiosa - In this part of the research, Diederik wants to influence you as little as possible. He wants to give your imagination as much space as possible.
  2. Parade - During this composition he wants to try out a lot of elements that could excite you.
  3. Who Guides? - In this piece, Diederik wants to research the effect on the music and your experience when you have an influence on the music.
