Stichting Akoustisch Beeldend Landschap

S'ABeL (Stichting Akoustisch Beeldend Landschap), is a not for profit art organization founded in 1984 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, by conceptual artist Judith van Praag, to create musical and visual landscapes, or theatrical art installations at unusual or –off the track– venues. Board members: Jeannette Dijkema-Storm MD, Alice Koot-duBuy MBA, Paul Mulder DDS, Kees Verkooyen, southeast Asia guide.

In 1986 the Amsterdam Art Council awarded S'ABeL 50 thousand guilders to develop the first installment of "The Estranger", a multimedia art performance.

"Man in Space", a multimedia recital, was presented in 1988 at the Oosterkerk in Amsterdam. Jeff Hamburg composed an acoustical space, a reflection of Van Praag's painterly set; the result a non-static environment.
