Stichting Klankschap

(one silence is worth a thousand sounds)

Stichting Klankschap (soundscape foundation) was founded in 1983 to provide a platform for improving the awareness of the sounds that surround us everyday. Sounds that we normally suppress in order to hear the iceing of the cake. The quality of sound however, can only be judged after it has been heard.

A conservative estimation indicates that around 80% of all sounds in the western environment are unintentional. They sound as an artefact of something else, not in order to be be listened to by themselves. e.g. aeroplanes, trains, cars and motorcycles are made to transport things from one place to another. Not as a musical instrument. Traditionally, music is made to be listened to; not as a mean to mask the traffic noise...

And sometimes people are too busy to listen to the music.
