'Dynamica Tumultus' is a registration of a performance at an abandoned highway in Almere in 1985. Here, Zegveld mixed the Doppler effect of cars and motorcycles racing along the highway with the live sound of instruments and musicians. Every moving vehicle has its own characteristic sound and Zegveld makes his musicians interact with the sounds created by the cars and motorcycles. In the second part of the performance, Zegveld equips the vehicles with light to add an extra dimension to his composition.

'Dynamica Tumultus' is also part of the compilation 'Soundsculpture, Paint, Notations, Music'.
