For Dawn Chorus Day 2024 a group of artists from the ‘Reality-based Audio Workshop’ group will join with streams from locations in various parts of Norway and northern Finland.

‘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. The recordings are then improvised and mixed collaboratively into a sound work. 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 in 2024: Siri Austeen, Joakim Blattmann, Espen Sommer Eide, Yngvild Færøy, Jiska Huizing and Alexander Rishaug.
