The woods of twilight sang. The pastures hustled and bustled. Women’s voices circled above the river Dommel. That was Signaal by Haanwijk, the one-kilometer long landscape opera during Theaterfestival Boulevard 2019. After that mesmerizing game of sounds by duo Strijbos & Van Rijswijk a call for more resounded. Not in vain, for this summer they guide audiences past sound installations in town. Their soundwalk Your trembling mile takes you past parks, buildings and other public spaces that they literally cover with sounds. The various shapes of these sound installations – from long throw speakers to Perspex panels – guarantee a variety of different sounds.

Strijbos & Van Rijswijk make the earcatching production Your trembling mile in collaboration with MTD Landscape architects form Den Bosch. Among others, they designed the zone of city walls in Den Bosch as well as the garden of the Noordbrabants Museum. Their knowledge of architecture and space completes the sensation that Your trembling mile has to offer. The street as a musical score, the public space for relaxation purposes, and a soundwalk the memory of which can resonate for a long time.
