A building full of stories : Juliana van Stolberglaan 1 .
For 41 years – from 1980 to 2021 – the building at Juliana van Stolberglaan 1 was a special place, for making music, for developing ideas, and for meeting musicians from all over the world. Anyone who – since 1980 – has had the opportunity to study or work in this building by architect Leon Waterman at Juliana van Stolberglaan, will have memories linked to spaces and places in and around the building. Some corners have their own very characteristic sounds: the sliding doors of the main entrance, the hollow slope down on the way to the studios, the intercom where names are being called when study rooms become available, the candy vending machines, or the sound of slamming doors on the corridors along Prinses Beatrixlaan. A yet almost empty building : Spuiplein 150 . At the moment the new building is almost empty and thus – theoretically – available for sound recordings and sonic interventions. For a short while, many rooms, halls, dance studios, study rooms, classrooms, dressing rooms and offices will be empty and not yet in use. This temporary vacancy offers the perfect condition to make sound recordings of – and at – this new location, before all its future inhabitants arrive, and stories of their own will be written.
