Torn Tracks: Platform launch

Visningsrommet USF, Verftet 07.11.2017 14.0007.11.2017 21.00


On the 7th of November a new stage of the Torn Tracks project by Jiska Huizing (NL) will be launched at Visningsrommet USF. With help of BEK, the first version of a digital platform has been developed that offers various ways of searching and organizing the collection of tracks and sounds that form the basis of this project.

Note: Performance at 19.00 hours

Torn Tracks
 is based on a collection of a growing amount of tracks that do not have one final, fixed form. They can exist in various forms at the same time, be it one made in the studio, performed live or a field recording, and the possibility of them being re-recorded, replaced or taken away over time is never excluded. The sounds for the tracks are recorded from Huizing’s immediate surroundings, often on walks, and sometimes combined with sounds of her voice and electric violin. They balance between music and sound art, playing with elements of both.

Through the platform that is launched at USF, visitors can search and wander through the
collection of tracks in different ways, each of them changing which tracks show up, in which order and how. The tracks create each other’s context. By categorizing them in different ways, various contexts are created and consequently various options for how they can be heard and perceived.

Torn Tracks
 is supported by BEK, Bergen Municipality and Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond.
