Sound arting with Saadia Hussain

December 12th, 2018 § 0 comments § permalink

While darkness is covering the country both in terms of lack of daylight and political government, my monitors are sounding of colours and voices from an art collaboration initiated by Saadia Hussain.

Saadia had an art residency in Halmstad this summer, where she spoke to and recorded a great amount of people about the meaning of home. Right now I am working to boile these many hours of material down to a sound art piece. We will be able to present the work for you in January 2019!

Sound engineering in beautiful chaos

October 27th, 2018 § 0 comments § permalink

Seeing this picture you might think I am on a nice holiday break. As a matter of fact it is quite the opposite. Behind this beauty we are shooting a rather chaotic short film by Johannes Nyholm in the small village Björnhammaren in Örebro County. The recordings take place in October and November and I will do my best to keep my feet on the ground while sound engineering. If you haven´t seen his former works like Las Palmas, Dockpojken and Jätten, you have a lot to enjoy in the meantime before this one is delivered. More to come!

Nordic Sound Art Exhibition

June 30th, 2018 § 0 comments § permalink

Summer started off super nice with working site specific at a unique place called Nääs Fabriker, an old textile factory area in Nääs/Tollered, Sweden. During one intense week, my work was taking form and developed from one idea to another.

In this exhibition, the installations and sound pieces has their starting point in the historical significance of Tollered, Sweden. Nine sound artists from Finland, Norway and Sweden are invited to work on spot with their installations the week before the opening. The aim is to emphazise the relevance and history behind the textile factory that characterize the area even today.

For this special occasion, I found one magic spot that attracted me more than others. I started to work with the sounds from the area along with the systematic work of putting up threads, one by one, coming out of the water and reaching the fasade of the old electric power station of the upper part of the village. The piece is called Ur vatten (Out of Water) and you can see all the sound works during the summer.

The participating artists are:
Heidi M Wee and Kimmo Modig, Finland, Yngvild Færøj and Siri Austen and Sössa Jörgenssen, Norway, Helena Persson, Sweden, Hannes Nilsson, Sweden, Dan Fröberg, Sweden, Mikael Bojen, Sweden and Rickard Widerberg, Sweden.

The exhibition is open June 15 – Aug 12, Fri-Sun, 11 – 16 pm.

ENTER Mölndal

June 15th, 2018 § 0 comments § permalink

Here´s the website of ENTER Mölndal that was introduced June 15. Through the project I recorded the field recordings with binaural microphones on spot, the subaquatic recordings with a hydrophone in the rapids of the village and the voice of Marika in a studio. During the post production process the team and I worked simultaneously to get the sound design and sound art to work with the additional videos and technical solutions.

ENTER Mölndal is the result of the project Gestaltade platser, medskapande historia i närmiljön (Envisioned places, co-creation in local neighbourhoods) run by Mölndals stadsmuseum in collaboration with RISE Interactive and Marika Hedemyr Projects.

Visit ENTER Mölndal.

First part of the film Konstnärligt arbete pågår med Kerstin Bergendal

April 23rd, 2018 § 0 comments § permalink

During the spring 2018 we had three recording sessions with the artist Kerstin Bergendal who gathered politicians and civil servants in the city of Halmstad for a workshop. Österskans – the old bus station – is the starting point for exploring the decision making and power relations whithin the municipality, while developing this particular common space.

The work was realized as one out of three processes within the Art Inside Out residencies called “Konstnärligt arbete pågår”, in Halmstad, Sweden, Jan – June 2018. Part 2 and 3 will be released before this summer.
