William Engelen is both, a visual artist and composer. In his work, he combines visual media and sound. On invitation of the Kunsthalle Mannheim the native Dutchman developed a site-specific work in order to bring off the acoustic quality of the architecture of the new museum building. His composition “Score 32 bpm for the Kunsthalle Mannheim” is going to be performed for the first time by eight musicians of the Mannheimer Schlagwerk (students of the Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts), each with nine percussion instruments, under the direction of professor Dennis Kuhn.
