Nøklevann, Oslo, Norway
Nøklevann is a lake in Østmarka, a forest on the east side of Oslo. From the recording spot you have a wide view out over the water, which is surrounded by forested hills.
For Dawn Chorus Day 2023 a group of artists from the Reality-based Audio Workshop group will join with streams from locations in various parts of Norway.
Reality-based Audio Workshop is a meeting of 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 a core of their artistic activities, and approach a chosen site with various advanced or experimental recording technologies. They have previously used collaboratively improvising with and mixing recordings into a sound work as a working method. Thematic focus has so far been centered 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.
Participating artists: Siri Austeen, Joakim Blattmann, Yngvild Færøy, Jiska Huizing and Gabriele de Seta.
