An audio-visual collaboration by Marco Douma (visuals), Roel Meelkop (sound) and Rutger Zuydervelt (sound).
Pierdrie was originally presented as an installation with 3 monitors and 4 speakers, at Hommes gallery in Rotterdam.
It was translated to a live performance at the International Film Festival Rotterdam this year. And now you can bring
Pierdrie to your home, 'cause we just released it as a DVD. Obviously, this version is adapted for one monitor, but
if you have a surround sound system, the audio will be close to as it was in the installation. Of course there's also
the option to go for stereo sound.
The Pierdrie film deals with the Waalhaven harbour in Rotterdam. All video and audio material was captured at pier 3,
which gives a fantastic view over the harbour. Despite the noisy, industrial surrounding, being on the pier can be an
incredibly tranquil experience. Distant sounds are taken over the water, through the air, softening the clanging of heavy
machinery to a immersive sound palette. This project is our attempt to translate our experience into an audio-visual work.
