Peter Lenaerts is fascinated by empty spaces and invisible sound. Sound that doesn’t scream for attention but sneaks into the listener’s ear unnoticed. Sound without ego, pure sound.
For his last work Quies, Lenaerts travelled through the Australian desert on an ironic and absurd quest for quiet. The result can be experienced as an album of recordings, a documentary film, an installation and a performance.
Apart from his own work, he has created sound and music scores for choreographers, filmmakers and visual artists including Mette Ingvartsen, Andros Zinsbrowne, Salva Sanchis, Robin Jonsson, Thomas Ryckewaert, Tom Heene.
He strongly believes that in a culture dominated by visuals, nothing is as powerful, intense, and rewarding as simply listening.
