SECHS Amsterdam

Immerse yourself into an otherworldly experience of light, sound and space. Visit this audiovisual experience now in the Zuiderkerk in Amsterdam!

Visit SECHS from 17.06 'til 04.07 in the Zuiderkerk. SECHS is an audiovisual spatial string instrument, initiated by 24classics, featuring multidisciplinary artist Boris Acket, composer Maarten Vos and light artist and media designer Christopher Bauder. Based on BACH’s 6th cello suite, the music transforms into a new minimal music composition.


SECHS brings Bach’s heritage together with modern composition techniques and a refined kinetic light sculpture - emphasizing and re-interpreting his innovation in symmetry, repetition, and composition. Following the likes of Wendy Carlos’ critically acclaimed ‘Switched on Bach’ — the first electronic interpretation of Bach’s work — and later re-interpreters such as Max Richter for Vivaldi, Acket & Vos present this completely new rendering of one of the world’s most influential composers. Together with the kinetic light sculpture by Christopher Bauder and spatial sound innovators 4DSOUND the composition is translated to a spatial immersive experience.
