Gracing Space at Friktioner

10-13 June, 2010

Live Feed & Field Recordings at Uppslala Domkyrka

In Gracing Space Project, Mari Kretz and Girilal Baars work with live feeds and field recordings of Very Low Frequency radio waves from the upper reaches of the Earth’s atmosphere. Kretz is a Swedish artist working in the fields of acoustic and visual art. In her work, she has focused on scientific studies of acoustical phenomena in the atmosphere, low frequency radio waves travelling around Earth and in the depths of space, as well as electric signals generated by internal organs and the nervous system of the human body. Working with researchers and engineers, ranging from astronomy to medicine, she has visualised the barely perceptible worlds around us. For her project ”Debris & other pieces”, based around atmospheric phenomena and space sounds, Mari Kretz has invited the musician and composer Girilal Baars. Baars works with vocal, acoustic and electronic music and holds to the idea that all rapid air-pressure changes are music. His performance Litanies in Zero Kelvin for voice, theremin and electronics was chosen for the Nordic Music Days in Oslo in 2009. Baars is particularly interested in exploring sounds from space, as he has been obsessed with space from a tender age.
