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!

It has been a busy week in Berlin starting up the construction of the future sounding sculpture created by Helena Persson and Eduardo Conceição. The Hovering Abode, as it is called, is the first joint collaboration between the two when it comes to art. The swedish-portuguese duo met in Stockholm while working on a theatre play for The Fringe Festival, where Eduardo made the scenography and Helena was doing sound and light. You will be able to experience the Hovering Abode at the exhibition called “The Sounding Room”, Jan 18-27, Röda Sten, Göteborg, Sweden.

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.
