Lofoten Residency for A Voice and Something Else

A week long residency in Lofoten with Sofie Knudsen Jansson and Elisabeth Færøy Lund in preparation for the A Voice and Something Else conference held at the University of Aberystwyth.  Here we experimented with a day of silence, a listening tour by each of us - allowing ourselves to hear what is often overlooked, especially in nature, and a series of vocal and physical exercises in which we explored perception and communication.  

eye contact becomes charged when words are not spoken

we heard birds while we were hidden
the sound of ice melting, dripping drop by drop
the roar of the ocean travelling far out into the horizon
