Allard van Hoorn, born February 29th, 1968 in Leiden, the Netherlands, is a sound-, installation- and performance artist creating choreographies for architecture, buildings as musical scores, scenographies for the built environment and scripts for investigating our relationships to (public) spaces.

'My main body of work consists of Urban Songlines, a utopian/dystopian series of collaborative translations of public spaces into music through site-specific sound-generation inspired by the tradition of the Songlines, a system for relating to-, mapping of- and caring for their land among Aboriginal Australians. These performances research how we use and experience the public domain and to what degree we can claim ownership over it, discussing notions of inclusion, becoming and belonging.'
