Den Haag (Groot Hertoginnelaan) is a sound installation designed for a space beside the Groot Hertoginnelaan tram stop. It makes use of and modifies the sound of cars (and also trams) passing, but specifically the rhythmic patterns as car tyres pass over the tram-tracks. The resultant pitch of the sound can be raised or lowered as passers-by extend or contract the 3 telescopic tubes. The sound that emerges allows for a more careful examination and listening of its qualities, as small differences between the 3 tubes become apparent and magnified.
