Dit + Dat ≠ Daar is a musical piece commissioned by Das Leben Am Haverkamp (daslebenamhaverkamp.com). It was 'performed' during their Paris Fashion Week exhibition at Atelier Néerlandais, Paris.

Dit + Dat ≠ Hier combines personal recordings with VST's, found musical material (on the World Wide Web) and stolen sound snippets. It consists of eight separate parts, all orbiting around a simple melodic phrase. Included are ornithological field-recordings around Faro (Portugal), simple marimbas and personal conversations made at the local super market in The Hague. The complete collage takes about seventy-five minutes to listen.

During the Paris Fashion Week the music was played through two separate stereo-systems, focussing on the spatial dimensions of the gallery.

De Methode is an idea.
