On Sparse Ground at BABEL Fest

June 16th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

Today June 16 the BABEL International Performing Arts Festival opens in Târgoviște, Romania. From tomorrow June 17 at noon, On Sparse Ground, a multi channeled sound art piece, will take place in the Chindei Tower, built in the 15th century. The tower and its three floors winding stairs will be explored sonically by field recordings from encounters with reindeers in the northern parts of Sweden, under the impact of a sparse landmass. The collected sounds are put together for this special occasion.

The BABEL International Performing Arts Festival has reached its fourth edition, reprising its activity after a five year hiatus. This year’s edition will take place between the 16th and the 21st of June, in multiple indoor and outdoor locations around Târgoviște. Read the program? On Sparse Ground in the program.

March 9th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

April 5-6, Moosdorf-Korrektive, Berlin, Germany.

DasMoosdorf, a new cultural venue at Treptower park, run by the Moosdorf-Korrektiv e.V., will open its gates to the public for the first time during a 36-hour festival at the beginning of April. Apart from an extensive music program on two stages with acknowledged musicians and Dj’s, the festival offers a platform for contemporary dance and performance as well as a mini-film festival.

Once again Eduardo da Conceição and I get to work together with the Hovering Abode series. At the festival you will find Hovering Abode Part II, which is an extension and development of the previous sound art piece Hovering Abode. This work is a collaborative artistic research and it will be an interdisciplinary experiment when it comes to both inspiration and expression. As soon as we start building, we know more about the process…

Will we meet in Berlin April 5 – 6? Hope so!

In collaboration with Butoh Dancer Frauke

March 7th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Libration, is the name of an upcoming collaboration between Frauke and Helena Persson at Textival, March 23.

Frauke, butoh dancer and choreographer, and sound artist Helena Persson, are forming an installation and live performance, where the dancer is syncronized with the room and the materials of the installation. The choreography and sounds are created in close relation to one another. The performance is to be simultaneously followed and written about by the writer Kristofer Folkhammar.

“Vi rör oss hela tiden tillbaka mot dygnets mörka timmar, men ser både dag och natt i horisontens rand. I de dovaste tillstånd, ryms en förtätad aktivitet. Den minsta svängning tas emot med den största intensitet. I ett tillstånd som vi inte vill lämna, som nattens mörker hjälper att förstärka, finns det som är vaket.”

See you there!

March 23, 7.30 pm,

Jan 18, Opening Ceremony – The Sounding Room

December 30th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

The Sounding Room is an experimental exhibition made by students from the Composition Program at The Academy of Music and Theatre in Göteborg. The installation Hovering Abode, made by Helena Persson and Eduardo Conceição (Berlin) is one of the pieces that will be presented at this exhibition.

Hovering Abode is an interdisciplinary experiment when it comes to both inspiration and expression. After seeing a drawing painted by the portuguese artist and architect Eduardo Conceição, Helena started developing her thoughts about the mobile life and its pros and cons, into a sounding scenario. The picture became the starting point of a correspondance built on pictures, photos, texts and words between the two of them. From this material a sketch evolved that later became an installation embodied in sound and architecture. Hovering Abode is a sounding sculpture, containing 6 speakers, surrounded by 4 speakers in a room. The sounds in the installation are field recordings.

Welcome to the Opening Cermony, Jan 18, 6 pm!

Opening Krísuvík Choir

March 6th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Today March 6 at 12 the sound sculptures Krísuvik Choir starts to sing!

While wandering through the enigmatic surface, the wholes of the ground started to speak, telling their stories. As if each and one of them had something important to say, they where telling tails from the passed, the present and for the future.

Krísuvík Choir is a sounding reconstruction of the surface I walked, but at the same time an embodiment of the voices that I met, personified in a new shape, represented by their own unique expression.
