The Devil Museum is Jacob Dwyer’s latest audio drama in which we listen to the diary of a man tasked with photographing all three-thousand of a museum’s devil sculptures. It combines field recordings with original musical compositions by Kareem Lotfy and Jacob Oostra. In September, this year, Arif Kornweitz remixed excerpts from the piece with a selection of tracks (including his own) to create a mix for RUBBER which they called DMT (The Devil Museum).
Jacob Dwyer stayed at the Kunstfort in 2017 and made the work Moot Steam at night on the island, which has been shown both in the fort and externally in a collaboration with Paviljoen Welgelegen in Haarlem. Arif played music during the festive opening of the exhibition of Erik Andriesse, partly inspired by his record collection.
Jacob Dwyer (UK) is an artist based in Amsterdam. His work often centres around personal encounters that could equally be seen as fables or heresy. He studied Experimental Film at Kingston university and completed a residency at De Ateliers (Amsterdam).
Arif Kornweitz (DE) frequently works with sound and is the co-founder of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee, an online radio station for the arts. He is associated with KIM, a research group on critical artificial intelligence at the University for Arts and Design Karlsruhe.
The Devil Museum will be released on vinyl early next year with Mana Records. Arif’s music will be released on his outlet UUUUSE next year.
Audio 42 minutes. Courtesy the artists. 2020. The entire mix can be listened to on soundcloud.
