Anthems
Amber Ablett
Lydgalleriet

In the Anthems project, Amber Ablett has been learning the national anthems of countries that people have asked her if she comes from. The project began in early 2017 when Ablett gathered a list of 13 countries that others had connected her with due to an assumption based on her appearance. However, the question of how we see ourselves and how we are seen goes much wider than my personal experience related to ethnicity. Strict definitions and ideas of gender, sexuality and ability are also often forced upon us without our permission and Ablett would like to open this discussion further through a series of workshops in the run up to the exhibition.

Shotgun Architecture
Justin Bennett
Kunsthall 3,14 Parabol

The recorded sound of a pistol shot in a number of semi-public open spaces in the Zuidas district in Amsterdam, thus the acoustic signatures (the impulse responses) of each space, was used in two ways whilst developing Shotgun Architecture. The recordings were used to create a sound composition which explores the resonances of the chose places by repeatedly recycling or “feeding back” the sounds of the gunshots through the spaces. The resulting piece moves between a dramatic realism to a abstract composition reminiscent of the electronic music of the 1950’s.

Innimellom er lyden stille
Line Horneland
Lydgalleriet

Innimellom er lyden stille is a vocal installation consisting of one voice in multiple layers. The vocal soundscape is regarded as auditive spaces to be in and demand alternative phenomenological undertones: it is in the meeting of sound and listening that the formation of meaning occurs. Because each subject brings its unique experience into the listening, it is also a co-creator and the installation is the framework which the listener complements with it's presence.

Thresholds of the Algorithmicis both an exhibition and a workshop. Algorithms are everywhere, simultaneously as they are concealed. We might register them in as much as we notice the selection of advertisements or news posts that are suggested to us on social media. It is not quite as easy to understand how algorithms function – we accept, often unwittingly – their analyses and conclusions.

Hilde Marie Holsen's "Lazuli" is like an intense dialogue between composition and improvisation, where the interaction between sound and music is experimental and often challenging. Nevertheless, the music is perceived as complete, guided by destiny. And in many ways the result is monumental. To change one item is unthinkable.

The Microtonal Tuba
Robin Hayward
Korskirken

Robin Hayward's Nouveau Saxhorn Nouveau Basse (2010) is composed for his specially crafted tuba and 7 speakers placed in a sensible system in relation to room acoustics. The room is the instrument of the sound, its size, decor, the features of the surface and the body of the audience adds sound-specific qualities to the sound, making every concert experience unmistakably unique. In Hayward's music, the room becomes a beacon in the concerts, where the sound masses develop in a slow course, as a meditation of the acoustics of the place. At the same time, the tuba tones clamp into each crutch and hook and expand the microtonal universe.

Stefan Rummel's new work Articulated Chambers was shown inside the gallery room in the corner of USF Verftet. Rummel uses strings in his work, in this piece strings that do not produce sound, more specifically silicone strings. As a mixture of the chameleon's tongue and the spider's net, the silicone strings are attached to various vibrating elements in the gallery, including a large bass speaker. The installation is a further development of an installation in Maastricht in May 2011, where two large boxes were located on a pier by the river Maas, which flows through the city.
