Sound and music computing
bio: Open to the Public
In collaborations with Borealis and Utmark we have been hosting rehearsals by the Langham Research Center and AR. The Langham Research Centre performed Eschatology, one of their own pieces, and they played a Notations Project Performance written by Andrea Spreafico. AR, a musical duo consisting of Richard Skelton and Autumn Richardson, premiered new music from their upcoming album, a follow up to Wolf Notes.
Escatology, a major new soundwork for Borealis, explores endings – the end of land where we take to ships, the end of radio contact where white noise fills the receiver; the end of individual sounds as they echo and decay in diverse Bergen locations, from the Hurtigrute boat horn bouncing off the mountains, to the ten second echo in a cave under the mountain.
The text – in Norwegian and English – was written and performed live by Peter Blegvad – also explores historical doctrines of The End.
New home-made electronic instruments and vintage tape machines developed sonorities derived from field recordings. The performance was accompanied by Jeremy Welsh’s meditative high definition video of shipping off the East coast of England in the North Sea. This was a contemplative work that encourages us to consider how it would feel to witness the end of the world.
The Borealis 2013 Notations Project was inspired by Theresa Sauer’s 2008 Notations 21 book – a wonderful collection of seminal classic and newly created graphic scores. Inspired by John Cage’s 1969 Notations publication, Notations 21 explores extended musical notation, ranging from new approaches to conventional stave notation, to scores that make use of text instructions, colour, photography, collage and other means of visual expression.
With this in mind, Borealis has initiated its 2013 Notations project, bringing together people from diverse disciplines to collaborate on creating and performing new musical scores, which will be performed and exhibited throughout the festival. For this event Andrea Spreafico developed a notation score, Catholic complex system for the end of the XX century, performed by the Langham Research Center.

Collaborations between students from Bergen Academy of Art and Design & Instituto de Artes, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro

Gallery hours: 12 – 6pm, except Friday 3 – 9pm
The exhibition is developed from research on the topic of voice, text and collectivity. It aims to question the conditions of voice, and the complex dynamics of the spoken. Central to the works is an investigation of the gaps between sound and sense, between structures of language and the sensual body, and between a physical interior and a social exterior. Voice is understood as fundamentally multiple, acting as the primary means for the poetical, and the affective exchange between oneself and the other.
The collaborations amplify such views by taking on the challenges of finding points of contact across distances and nations, and of figuring the possibility of a shared language.
Organized by Ricardo Basbaum and Brandon LaBelle, as part of the shared course “Voice, Text, Collectivity”, Bergen-Rio de Janeiro, Fall 2012. The exhibition will travel to Rio de Janeiro in May for an exhibition at Galeria Cândido Portinari.
