VOICES FROM YOUR FUTURE PAST

"Voices From Your Future Past" is a sound installation and sound work which uses the voice as a compositional instrument reflecting upon shadows and presences in virtual technologies and their aural construction. It has been presented as a multi-channel concert and an augmented reality sound installation in public space.

Statement:


Modern architectures and technologies are vessels which ingurgitate the chaos of history, equally creating spaces and metaspaces where destruction, decay and ideas of ‘the new’ construct a plot to promise eternal growth, forget the past, to hide the future from its own present, approaching the virtual and the perpetual.


This work aims to acknowledge and evoke the sense of disconnection we have experienced in the virtual worlds in which we have been forced to live and communicate, particularly in the last years. Voices From Your Future Past confronts the audience with the irreality of a digital presence, despite the human desire and necessity to connect with it.

In the space, Janvin’s voice traverses and bends the boundaries between the sensible, the intelligible and the sensitive nature of music. Stark, condensed bursts of microsounds give way to choral plateaus, resisting the temptation of signification, abstracting words from meaning and voices from bodies.

"Voices from your future Past" is conceived by sound artists and composers Davide Luciani, Fabio Perletta, and spatial sound artist Jordan Juras in collaboration with Norwegian artist and singer Stine Janvin. It is curated by Daniela Arriado and produced by Art Republic and Mote Studio.

The work is presented by Son.AR, a collective and curatorial-research project dedicated to aural research in relation to mixed media realities, sonic arts and public spaces.

AUGMENTED SOUND INSTALLATION

ULTIMA FESTIVAL
PUBLIC SPACE, OSLO

16 SEPTEMBER 2021 — PRESENT

The installation is located in 3 areas across the city of Oslo, in the proximity to Blå, Atelier Nord, Sentralen, Oslo Kunstforening and The Oslo Opera House. The audience is invited to take a journey through these locations, seeking out physical-virtual sites of aural experiences.

The artwork can be experienced individually at each location or as a sound walk. The audio dramaturgies is characterised by extended vocal techniques spatialised by a 3D audio render engine interacting with the listener's position and distance in space. The video shows one of the three scenes, the one called "A" which features musical choirs. The audio in the video is recorded in binaural. For a better listening experience, it is recommended the use of headphones.
