Pheobe & I should have been in Ljubljana in March 2021 for a residency, installation & performance, but instead the work has been adapted for an FM sound walk, a radio broadcast of a new performance piece &, perhaps, an installation at some point if Steklenik could have re-opened to the public.

a booklet (available as a pdf, including a link to a specially composed realisation of one of the 'scores for listening' from the series) for this work, along with some reflections on listening and located sound is available to download

ìsland | fjorar - the crystal detector

ìsland | fjorar is a series of works based on material collected from multiple visits to Iceland, and from our on-going fascination with the possibilities offered by the interweaving of different elements of sound, image and text. Sounds that are not normally detected by our human hearing response / attention, often above or below our range play an important role in the composition. Using extended techniques and hand-crafted devices, the artist listens to the sounds of minerals dissolving, the infrasound of the earth's rotation around its axis, and the ultrasonics of geothermal activity. He interweaves these fragments with documentation of individual temporary interactions between specific locations in Iceland and photographic images, along with textual material contributed by Pheobe riley Law
