Reality-based Audio Workshop is a meeting of accomplished artists from Norway and internationally, attempting to re-think the relationship between sound and reality in our time. The artists all use field recording of audio as the core of their artistic activities, and approach a chosen site with various advanced or experimental recording technologies. The recordings are then improvised and mixed collaboratively into a sound work. Thematic focus has so far been centred around various forms of energy and their land use, both historical and future ones. The project was initiated by BEK, Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts in collaboration with Ernst Karel from the Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab.
For the Dawn Chorus Day Signe Lidén, Alexander Rishaug, Yngvild Færøy, Jiska Huizing, Siri Austeen, Joakim Blattmann and Espen Sommer Eide have chosen locations in various parts of the Oslo region.
