Rose Dodd - 1996

Duration: 7' 20

Kinderspel is experimental in its attempt to create an appropriate and collaborative musical and visual language. The underlying ethos was to give the imagination full rein – viewing artistic expression as child’s play (kinderspel) once more! The opening sound is a sample of a DAT machine as it forward winds/back winds; a sound common within the practices of electroacoustic music, but rarely used as a sample in its own right. Sampling is at a premium in Kinderspel and is used intentionally in a deliberate and rough way.

Kinderspel was commissioned by the Sonic Arts Network of Great Britain in 1996 and was awarded a mention at Prix Ars Electronica in 1999.
