SSSSII: Kalarand / with Sven Sosnitski / 2014

 

ISFAG, Tallinn, Estonia

 

participatory sound installation, 6 channel audio, 9 tape decks, 9 compositions on cassette tapes - 90min each

 

Bernie Krause, musician and bioacoustician, redefined the soundscape elements in terms of their three main sources, geophony, biophony, and anthrophony. We took that as a base model for field recording while mapping the bay area called Kalarand near the art space ISFAG. By making three compositions for every layer corresponding to the order of division of a soundscape, the viewer is presented with an experimental participatory sound installation where the total reformulated soundscape is a collective act.

 

SSSS is a collaboration project between artist Sten Saarits and composer Sven Sosnitski. The duo work with audio-visual space installations. The first collaboration project was an installation piece entitled „SSSSI: TheGreat.wav“ or "The Great Wave" which is represented graphically when writing down both of their initials together.
