23/4 We will continue the work with our piece 'The Sound Choir', which is a part of our ongoing sound piece 'Breathing Water'. But we have needed to make a pause.The Sound Choir will contain iPhone recordings from people in Malmö saying 2 out of 3 breaths is oxygen coming from the Ocean, and Breath Water (referring to that our lungs consist of 85 % of water), in so many languages we can collect, in Malmö, around 160-180 languages are spoken. We aim for it to be installed in a sound shower outdoor public. Right now we have 41 languages, and we will make a demo out of that. www.breathingwater.se
LISTEN TO THE SOUNDTRACK to the film. Very proud that my voicings are in the film, (the loudest voice is mine, very emotional improvisation, we voiced death in a collective voice improvisation in the oil cistern in Marieberg, Västernorrland).
