Det er fint lys her da synes jeg

Joakim Blattmann

My work with sound spans from sculptural installations and concerts, to purely sound-based works.

In certain works I employ field recordings of various auditory environments as the basis for musical

structures. The piece shown as part of Lydkunst via Drive In is an example of the latter, where

several field recordings and a guitar form the basis of a composition.

Revisiting Possible Spaces

In Revisiting Possible Spaces I use my own sonic experiences and memories as a starting point for this sound piece which is specially composed for Drive In Rebild. Aural horizon, scale and abstracted sonic everyday life is here key words. Through reflection on a handful of memory-based soundscapes * this notion of a familiar room at an unknown location was made.

I have long been committed to relationship between sound, place and identity and thereby become interested in the actual listening as action. Listening as both artistic practice and as a way of being in the world. Sound and listening is directly associated with time spent and therefore also with how time is used. How we spend our time and how we live our lives.

Water and Stone

Tine Surel Lange

Water and Stone
In a time where we are constantly surrounded by sound, have we forgotten how to listen?
Have we forgotten to hear the music in the mountain stream, the tone colours in the wind? Have we forgotten to notice the interaction between and natural orchestration of the sounds in our surroundings?

With my art I want to make people listen, with the hope that we through listening get more in contact with and care more about our surroundings and the changes happening around us.


Kristine Marie Aasvang

Engine roar and traffic noise, owerpower and shake the bodies.
Do the vowels get space between all the frequencies?
The vowel mixes itself into the traffic and the traffic mixes itself into the wovel.

All sounds is a presence, a touch.

"Flytaxi" consists of field recordings and vocal.


Kristin Tollefson

Water, sounds sourced from a summer of mountain lakes and streams in Montana down to the Salish Sea and Puget Sound of Washington. Ideally played simultaneously on two to four channels or audio sources, not synched.

There is a story that I want to tell you

is a piece for the Drive-In Sound Gallery initiated and organized by Tulle Ruth. I used: my e-bass, my duoband-hb9cv antenna combined Funcube Dongle and quisk on my laptop and a VLF (= very low frequency) recording from Victor Mazon Gardoqui - gracias, Victor!

Time, Dreaming itself

Francois Martin

My contribution for the drive-in is based on five trips I have made during the last six years. This is a selection of old productions and two new sound creations and it's important that my playlist plays with the view of landscape by the windshield. The recordings were made during five trips; to Quebec where I recorded the whales, in Finland where I found old tapes, in France where I listened to the cicadas, I crossed the "unseparated" Belgium by boat to record chimes and bells, in Germany where I recorded a windy place.

relaxation: songs for city dwellers

Annie Martin

"The modern lo-fi soundscape posesses no perspective; rather, sounds massage the listener with continual presence" - R. Murray Schafer

In creating relaxation: songs for city dwellers in 2004, I was interested in the contemporary pursuit of relaxation, and in our received notions of what constitutes a relaxing environment. Typical audio environments for relaxation feature idealized and purified representations of nature. In contrast, the sound environments presented in relaxation: songs for city dwellers evoke situations of contemporary urban life, life in world of advanced capitalism. Why- through what operation- do certain sounds allow us to feel removed from our stresses, nourished and refreshed? With relaxation: songs for city dwellers, the listener/viewer experiences urban sounds (waste managements, traffic, mechanical noises) in a controlled way, allowing for the possibility of a trance-like, "relaxed" state and a deeper contemplation of our actual environment. To create a relaxing montage from everyday sounds, I have focused on certain sound qualities, -space, rhythm, and repetition - to craft unique soundscapes. The pleasure of listening is at heart of this work.
