An audio-visual installation event bringing together Jana Winderen's Evaporation and Lawrence English and Werner Dafeldecker's Fell.
 
Both works, presented side by side, explore with unique perspectives the sonic landscape of deep moving, slow and vast terrains through the collection of recordings from Arctic and Antarctic environments.
 
This event is followed by an intimate performance from electronic musician Eric Holm, which will be accompanied by a live audio-visual performance. Read more...
 
Jana Winderen, Evaporation 
 
Jana Winderen researches hidden ocean depths with the latest technology, revealing the complexity and strangeness of unseen worlds beneath. She is concerned with finding and revealing sounds from hidden sources - audio topographies of oceans and the depths of ice crevasses are brought to the surface using digital processes.
 
Evaporation, explores the state of transition from liquid to gas, revealing the sonic presence of this transformation. Formed from a series of hydrophone recordings made in Greenland  25 metres underneath and within glaciers, Winderen creates a layered and descriptive soundscape combined with video footage taken during the field trip.
 
Jana Winderen is an artist educated in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London, and with a background in mathematics, chemistry and fish ecology from the University in Oslo. She had an installation in Park Avenue Tunnel, New York City in the summer of 2014 and exhibited at MoMA, NYC in 2013. Jana is artist-in-residence at the TBA21 Academy and releases her audio-visual works on Touch. 
 
In 2011 she won the Golden Nica, Ars Electronica, for Digital Musics & Sound Art. Amongst her activities are immersive multi-channel installations and concerts and has performed all over the world. She currently lives and works in Oslo.
 
Lawrence English and Werner Dafeldecker, Fell
 
Fell is an audio visual work created at Esperanza Base on the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula during the summer of 2010. The work explores the potentials for rapid climate shift, whereby one micro-climate can be replaced with another in a matter of hours, and sometimes minutes. Offering a moment of metaphoric meditation on our abilities to perceive change - both micro and macro, Fell considers how we might choose to respond to the alterations that will face us into the next century and beyond.
 
Werner Dafeldecker was born in Vienna in 1964 and studied the double bass. As a musician and composer, he moves between improvised and composed music and takes advantage of the manifold possibilities offered by electro-acoustics. His works often follow the principles of reductive music that is based on thinned-out, concentrated material, subjecting it to subtle modifications. 
 
Lawrence English is composer, media artist and curator based in Australia. Working across an eclectic array of aesthetic investigations, English’s work prompts questions of field, perception and memory. He investigates the politics of perception via live performance and installation to create works that ponder subtle transformations of space and ask audiences to become aware of that which exists at the edge of perception.
