Omdrejninger is a unique project conceived by sound-installation artist Christian Skjødt and composer, and guitarist Mark Solborg aiming at investigating and challenging the listening experience for both musicians and audience. A site-specific work for ensemble, space and loudspeakers. Solborg and Skjødt call it a spatial instrument.
In brief the music consists of composed and improvised pieces played by a handpicked ensemble and then processed through a system developed and designed specifically for the project. The system (the patch) can only treat what it receives from the ensemble and the microphones. Delay, enlarge, distort, sample, and geographical displace through the speakers in different patterns and tempi. The audience is placed around the ensemble, the loudspeakers around everybody. An original version of a contemporary and very special listening experience. Another type of communication of relatively abstract music and sound.
Omdrejninger holds a dense and nuanced sound-universe in many layers. We recommend good listening equipment, or headphones , for a full and detailed experience.
