Silence, Noise, and Collapse was, despite a low turnout, a great event – stay tuned for more documentation to show up on this website. Two packed days generates a lot of stuff.
It also generated a band, of sorts: The Norbert Wiener Memorial Feedback Orchestra, an open group playing with unstable systems. Below is the first performance from Dec 7th.
Last Sunday my new piece for headphones Det du lämnade efter dig was exhibited at KKV Bohuslän in Hamburgsund, Sweden. It is part of the international festival Voices from the waters. The piece will be shown at Sjöfartsmuséet in Gothenburg the coming weekend (November 28-29), also part of the festival. Other works that is shown in the sound art section of the festival are from Annea Lockwood, Bernhard Parmegiani, Chris Watson, Jana Winderen and Helena Persson.
Today at Two little birds cafe in Gothenburg with Barrie Sutcliffe. Rehearsing for our upcoming performance Silence, noise and collapse at Skogen in Gothenburg.
An installation based performance by Anna Bergström and Richard Widerberg. On show September 24-26 at the Medical History Museum in Gothenburg.
The piece investigates what’s human in the body of illness and the history of medical care. An embodiment of the unspoken exists in-between the lines of historical medical descriptions and texts as well as within the personal stories. In such a way we meet memories and vibrations present in the spaces within the museum and its objects – as a museum, archive and hospital.
I am just starting a collaboration with the dancer and coreographer Anna Bergström. We are going to make a performance in an open space in a public health care institution in the Gothenburg region. More info to come.
The project has been going on since August 2013 and the exhibition ends the project. I have been working with various groups of various ages in Vara with listening excercises and collecting sound. The groups has been all from school-kids recording sounds from their school yard to farmers on the country side recording sounds from their neighbourhood and old and new tools.
