Jana Winderen

27. February 2015
Sonic Acts Festival, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Drifting away from a state of stability, blurring acceleration, moving out of sight, but not out of mind. Invisible but audible, the consequences reveal themselves through the silence of species we have never heard. Jana Winderen’s new work Pasvikdalen is based on recordings made both above and under water close to the border between Norway and Russia.















Première performance, commissioned by Dark Ecology / Sonic Acts












Jana Winderen (NO) studied at Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London, with a background in mathematics, chemistry and fish ecology from the University of Oslo. She researches the hidden depths with the latest technology, and exposes the complexity and strangeness of the unseen world below us, bringing the audio topography of the oceans and the depth of ice crevasses to the surface. She finds and reveals sounds from hidden sources, also those inaudible to humans, as well as those from places or made by creatures difficult to access. Winderen’s immersive multichannel installations and concerts have been staged all over the world, and her audiovisual works are released by Touch.

Friday 27 February
21:40 - 22:25
