I JUST KEPT TRAVELLING

 

 

I started on this journey some years ago, in a period where I travelled extensively and was unable to work at my normal praxis. I had to grab whatever possibilities there where. Sampling sound and images whilst traveling or waiting for it. Early morning walks in unknown places. Small gaps in the schedule before breakfast or meetings etc.

 

Images, texts and sound, with poetic intent, are written, sampled and evolved in conjunction with each other. Simultaneously. By one “hand” or one sentiment. Traditionally multi-medial collaborations, shaped into “one-hand” expressions.

 

Kneading it… like sculpting with clay. Now from the sound or the text-side, now from the image-side. Hopefully achieving a “oneness” or coherence in the processes.

 

I like words. Words not used as weapons or for empowerment. The words I like are intuitive orderings of thoughts. Reflections on the human condition. I experiment with the reading of the texts. Sometimes fascinated with the inaudibility or my english pronunciation.

 

The soundscapes are mostly made by sampling my own voice or by making sounds from instruments I do not know how to play. (a discipline I am developing). Trying to be prepared when fortuitous sounds appear. I also frequently listen to, and  use, the wonderful free samples given away with some music magazines.

 

New ideas, intuitions and development in my skills have constantly disrupted and changed versions I thought were final.

I needed frequent deadlines however, to break this project into manageable sizes, so I have published a new piece, here on this page, on the 1. of every month in both 2013 and 2014.  Here I just show a few of them. The plan is now to polish and finish. Remix and publish this project late 2015.
