Willem Waterschoot

Willem Waterschoot, Netherlands (1986) is a composer and audio artist, investigating the properties of magnetizable media, the tangibility of sound and its relations to the environment. He is a former philosophy student with an admiration for the concept of sabi and natural phenomena within the world of sound, clearly audible in his divergent range of self-released lo-fidelity works, mainly under the alter ego of Akazeno. Furthermore, he has written a variety of orchestral pieces, is a former teacher in percussion, and is active as a field biologist.
As a graduation project he is constructing a play of analog audio chess, in which the concepts of canon, difference, repetition and context are magnified and shifted through the framework of a simple ‘machine’.
