The Harmony Group is an open study circle exploring the idea of harmony and its relation to control. The group will meet regularly during the spring 2015, where anyone can join at any meeting.
Our open artist group will meet regularly to investigate the theme “Harmony, Panic, and Collapse,” developing the work started in “Silence, Noise, and Collapse.” We will engage in practical activities concentrated on physical sensory experiences rooted in concrete research about systems, control, and chaos. These will manifest as experiments with, for example, sound, motion, travel, light, structure, and more. The research will be ongoing with the possibility of public events to invite an audience into the process.
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.
