EAR-SOUND’N’NOISE-SCAPE 2022 will take place on 2 days in March and April in collaboration with the Library Rentemestervej, the venue Mayhem and the association Alteration. On that occasion, we have invited a strong collection of artists to unfold with field-recording, ambisonics and sound installation. The program at the Library, March 19, consists of four parts of approx. 25-30 minutes each.
The Sound works will be performed in the great hall. Where 10-14 loudspeakers will be used both as an ambisonic- and as a loudspeaker orchestra. The music is played from a multi-track HardDisk recorder and the sounds are controlled from the mixingboard. Brand new commisioned works for loudspeaker orchestra, by composers PO Jørgens and Jakob Riis are being performed. Silas Bieri / Alexis Rodríguez Cancino - has created an installation work based on audio-visual research, among others in the local area of Bispebjerg. The programme is crowned by an ambisonic work selected for the occasion by Natasha Barrett.

POJ is a renowned sound sculptor, creative studio composer and percussionist.
Jakob Riis - “Alt. Sound (Sound Check) ”A new multi-channel composition that examines sound phenomena, timbre and sonic textures for nuances threatened by drowning in Gish-gallop and disinformation.
