SOUNDSITE/LISTENINGSCAPE CORRESPONDENCE (Druskininkai, Lithuania – Stockholm, Sweden – Basel, Switzerland, 2015)
A collaboration with artist, researcher and performer Christina Burkolter (CH, DK) which was presented as a site-specific sound performance in Druskininkai, Lithuania, during the NSU Summer Session in July 2015. Soundsite/Listeningscape Correspondence is an ongoing project that started as an exchange of sonic sketches between myself, living in Stockholm, Sweden, and Christina, based in Basel, Switzerland, and it evolved into an embodied dialogue of site-specific exploration of the notions of togetherness and permeability through the use of sound. Soundsite/Listeningscape Correspondence was performed before a live audience in a hybrid format, including both pre-recorded sound pieces and live voice manipulation. It was framed as a sonic exploration of the mutual engagement essential to a nomadic artistic research community, and also as an embodied inquiry into performative practices of co-authorship and collaborative research.
