Jana Winderen – Pasvikdalen
Premiere Sonic Acts Festival 27 February 2015 Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam, NL www.sonicacts.com Drifting away from a state of stability, blurring acceleration, moving out of sight, but not out of mind. Invisible but audible, the consequences reveal themselves through the silence of species we have never heard. Jana Winderen’s new work Pasvikdalen is based on recordings made both above and under water close to the border between Norway and Russia. Jana Winderen (NO) studied at Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London, with a background in mathematics, chemistry and fish ecology from the University in Oslo. She releases her audiovisual works on Touch. Amongst her activities are immersive multichannel installations and concerts. She has performed all over the world. Jana Winderen researches the hidden depths with the latest technology; her work reveals the complexity and strangeness of the unseen world below us. The audio topography of the oceans and the depth of ice crevasses are brought to the surface. She finds and reveals sounds from hidden sources, also those inaudible to humans, and those from places or made by creatures difficult to access. www.janawinderen.com Jana Winderen is a work by Pasvikdalen, commissioned by Dark Ecology 2016.
