A transfer of time, places and events.
Presented at the art exhibition IN/BETWEEN; LOCALIZE together with Stamsund Internasjonale Teaterfestival, Stamsund, Lofoten, Norway 2006.
My work includes five sound pieces placed in different places in Stamsund.
Sound 1 and 2 are parts of normal life from work to weekend.
Sound 3, 4 and 5 are what comes In/Between.
Sound 1: Sound from a subway station was placed next to a bridge in the harbor. The subway was heard over the water.
Sound 2: A recording from a birthday party; people talking, eating, drinking and singing was placed in a deserted area in the harbor.
Sound 3: Radio news was heard from an open window of a house near the beautiful bay. The broadcast was about terror attacks, like something had just happened.
Sound 4: A love scene.
I wanted to pick the ”In/Between” sounds from the internet, but here I need to comment. It is very easy to find sound files with murder, criminality, blood and disaster. But love.. At last I found a page with free-standing English words said by both women and men. A course for Asian people to learn the English language. I cut together a love scene of these words.
Sound 5: A radio was heard behind a hedge. A person zapping between channels. What was heard between the music and crackling were people who talked about crime.
