Soundscape Røst For Insomnia


Not part of the Re:place project per se, but tangential to it, the exhibition Soundscape Røst For Insomnia by Elin Øyen Vister opens at Tromsø kunstforening coming Friday.

The exhibition is based on several years of field recordings capturing the soundscape at the Røst Island, documenting soundscapes of coastal nature and culture, and the sounds of endangered pelagic seabird populations such as Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Puffins and Razor Bills.

BEK has assisted the production of the installation, as it is making extensive use of Max, Jamoma and ViMiC spatialisation for the creation of immersive multichannel sound scenes. Saturday, as part of an extensive program accompanying the exhibition, Trond Lossius will give an artist talk and concert at Tromsø kunstforening.
