The second instalment of the Vibrational Semantics series is Belong to Me is by musician, artist and open water swimmer Lisa Busby. Her work takes the form of a visual score, a sound work and a short accompanying essay on the metaphorical act of singing underwater. It is beautifully haunting.

The Vibrational Semantics text series explores the voice’s ability to shift seamlessly between signification and sonority, from speech sound to noise. Questions of linguistic ambiguity, embodied voicing and feeling/ meaning are investigated in relation to the place and presence of the performed voice.
The project is part of artist Samuel Brzeski’s ongoing artistic engagement with Lydgalleriet, involving several newly commissioned text works curated by Samuel and commissioned by Lydgalleriet. The texts will be released in the months building up to Samuel’s solo exhibition with Lydgalleriet, opening February 2023. Vibrational Semantics is part the EU program Oscillations: Exercises in Resilience, co-funded by Bergen Kommune.
