Meditate your way through a world of memories, fear and internal pictures created by spatial, acousmatic audio. ‘Retrieval’ is a guided meditation performance using abstract sounds and voice. The performance brings you on a journey which morphs between abstract concrete and abstract worlds. Throughout the surreal landscapes one meet a narrative about humans fears, loneliness, escapism and nostalgia.
Absurdum Temporary Art is Lisa Mårtensson and Lotta Fahlén
‘ODE TO THE MOBILE PHONE’ is an electronic music performance, which researches an alternative form of spatialization, in an inclusive format where each audience is part of creating the listening experience with the aid of one's personal smartphone speaker.
The piece is created by recordings of phone conversations, vibrating smartphones, ringtones etc. It is as tribute to Julies own mobile phone, her relation to it and the relations which it creates.
‘Translations, Rotations, Reflections’ is an exploration of musical geometry. The audience is led through waves of motion which questions us: How do we react, then our surroundings are changing? What happens, when that very universe we are surrounded by looks like everything we know, but it’s placement in time and space is changed?
Lasse Munk and Andreas Wetterberg are a part of Kopenhagen Laptop Ochestra (KLO). They research the computer as an instrument to perform electronic music live. They immerse the audience in spheric synth sounds and heavy beats using a shitload of speakers. Lola Ajima is the captain of their sounds movement trajectories in space, while Christoffer Birkkjær creates visual mindblowing renderings.
ULLA invites the audience to a sonification of her apartments living room. In which they experience electroacoustic sound universes created from everyday objects. The older apartment has thin walls, and a high ceiling. The work is especially relatable if one has lived in an older Copenhagen apartment.
LOLA AJIMA manipulates sound spaces- and objects which gets exaggerated, enhanced, twisted, bend, changed and diminished to create dynamic sonic contrasts and movements in the physical space through the many speakers of the concert hall. The audience smartphones are used as an addition to the speaker array.
How does it sound if one works with sonic timbres the way a painter works with colors in paintings? ‘THE ELEMENTS OF COLOUR’ is an artstic research of timbres. The compositions are inspired by the book ‘The Elements of Colour’, which is a fundamental book about colour systems for painters and students of the swiss painter Johannes Litten. Ingvilds performance is a translation of those principles into the auditive field, adapted as musical etudes.
