Our work for the Oculus Rift project of the Breda University of Applied Sciences is done! We composed 30 interactive compositions you hear and can react to while seeing a virtual reality exposition of stunning Japanese paintings.
Interactive music asks for sounds that suggest unity and meanwhile react to changes in the environment. In the oculus project, we investigate how we can do this realistically. Our key is the transformation of musical themes and motives.
Research starts in the summer of 2015. We are very much looking forward to the results.

Ruben Smit is making a new tv series about him travelling through the river Rhine landscape in a canoe, from the border with Germany to the sea. In his ‘boat movie’ in you will experience Dutch nature like you have never seen it before. Flood plains, woodlands, streams teaming with wildlife, above and underwater. Release date: nov/dec 2015 in co-production with Vara/BNN.
Composition, piano & samples: Gertjan Eldering
Video & sounddesign: Eirik Solheim
We composed for Ruben Smit’s weekly blog on VARA’s Vroege Vogels TV. HERE you can watch just one of many episodes.
With Breda University of Applied Sciences we place our first footsteps in the brave new world of research and gaming. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency granted us funds to investigate the relationship between the oculus rift (intriguing 3D-glasses) and music.
ARTE just loved Sarah’s Night! They bought the film for broadcasting. That’s the second film sold to TV, as NPS bought Momentum earlier on.
Almost two years after its première, Oneway ticket to Bussum is still travelling the world. It has been selected for Little BIG shots – International Film Festival for Kids in Australia, later this year.
