Our constellation Breathing Water;  Felicia KonradDavid CarlssonMats Persson, Tina Quartey has taken the name of the

ongoing sound piece with the name Breathing Water 2021- that received Projekt Development from Malmö Kulturstöd #malmökulturstöd in December 2020.

2023

16/8 Live performance concert Body of Water 3-hour durational at St Petri Church at @malmofestivalen 16th of August 2023!


We are also sketching some ideas, and hoping that our continuing contact with Skånes Dansteater maybe will result in a very

special sound work. 


And we hope that we can return to the piece "The Sound Choir" that we had to interrupt in 2021. 

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.

'The Oracle'; solo voice/sound art/performance

A series of deadly serious humoristic short vocal spontaneous sound pieces with theme climate chaos,

a more-than-human perspective. But also with an urge to open myself to a language that I don't understand.

Is there a code inside of me to find?

www.soundcloud.com/fkonrad

The Oracle occurred as a spontaneous answer on the open call QuAR(T)antine )made by Performance Køkkenet. 42 videos from different places in the world. Made to the pop-up exhibition of Ljudkonst, Hola Folkhögskola Oct 2020, Fyren, Härnösand 

The work will be continued, but delayed due to work with the sound piece Breathing Water, the film Precious Balance Walk, and 'A Chorus of Haptic Tones', and the coming film Earthlove.

 28/7-16/8 Water Dialogues, sound piece installation outdoor Malmö Art Museum as an extension of the exhibition             Shapeshifters. Slow walk collective 9/8, Live performance concert 16/8 (documentation Vimeo)

  The sound piece Water Dialogues (Felicia Konrad, David Carlsson, Mats Persson,  Tina Quartey) was originally created
  for the audio logs at Tomelilla Art hall, for the exhibition 2018, Amniotic Fluid by I Still Live in Water.

  For the outdoor installation in the summer of 2020 at Malmö Art Museum, a new mix and master was produced by

  David Carlsson, Gula Studion.

  Water Dialogues is an intuitive and spontaneous sound piece that range from exploration of more than the human world, the          mystic and mind-blowing in that water is alive, and the everyday nordic welfare life where the clean running tap water is   

  something that we take for granted, with the sense that we have endless water resources. 

 

  Water Dialogues was released on 11/3 2019 on Spotify and other platforms such as Bandcamp.
  Also played in Swedish radio P2, Jazzradion, and Kalejdoskop.


  The Art Intendant Desirée Lennklo at Tomelilla Art hall, Sweden:
  "During the exhibition period, many of our visitors took part of the sound piece Water Dialogues.  
   The sound piece seemed to stimulate stillness and reflection.

   Often when we in the staff were crossing the room we met visitors sitting and half laying in sac sacs, apparently encapsulated     in the sound piece. And in themselves.
   The sound piece appealed to both children and adults, and these moments of stillness and soulful presence the piece offered     and gave the visitors a very strong experience.
   -Tomelilla Art hall found that the sound piece was very appreciated and that it gave a deepening understanding,
    not only in the understanding of our relationship to water but also, and maybe the most important, our relation to                      ourselves our origin, and our future." 


 

 5/3 Participated in a vocal sonic meditation that was recorded, mixed, and included in a sound piece of the Cinematic      sound piece ; War-who-can- separate- from-their-enemy? shown at CPH: DOX and that will be released in 2021.  
  One field recording of cracking ice made by me and Madde Englund is also part of the composition. 









At the end of 2018, I was participating in a weekly Deep Listening course by Morten Svenstrup that is a certified teacher by Pauline Oliveros.

 

  2 ears sonic meditation (Let your ears have wings) by Felicia Konrad

  Close your eyes if you want.
  Take a deep breath and hold it for a couple of seconds, then breath out.
  Observe your own breathing and sense the vibrations of your breathing in your body and imagine that you draw a            contour around your whole body.
  Connect your heart and your 2 ears inside your body, or outside your body.

  With your 2 ears then start listening to the sounds inside your body,
  in the room, or close to you,
  expand and listen to the sounds outside the room.

  Go as far as you want and shift your listening as you like, and maybe play a little, let your ears listen in different       directions; behind, in front, above, besides...

  Add if you like: try to let one ear listen to a certain sound and the other ear stay close listening, shift.

  Add if you wish: Let the sounds take shape (become sound sculptures), let them have color, follow how they are                moving/vibrating.


 

  5-7/3 Participated in 2 artistic workshops by Tian Rotteveel and 1 workshop with Jeaninne Durning during the                     Eareye festival at Inkonst, Malmö/Sweden.
