Transmitting visible sounds and audible visions, Black & White radio is a series of conversations with various composers in the scene of contemporary and classical music. Your host Nico de Rooij visits his guests in their environments and tries to figure out what inspires them and voyages with them between the perceptions of sound and the colours they transmit.
In this episode of Black & White Radio, Nico De Rooij wonders with Vienna- Amsterdam based composer Natalia Dominguez Rangel on how sound affects and resonates with an audience physiologically and psychologically, and how space makes us think of time, duration, medium, acoustics and architecture. She describes that sound can be a source of both pain and pleasure.
