Lyt til Verden is a sound installation where audience can compose their own personal soundscape by using a simple interface controlling a program and a bank of different field recordings from various places.
The recordings were done by an international group of field recording artists who were given the task to
- 1. find a location with geographical similarities to the site of the actual installation.
- 2. Analyse and record sonic events that represented this location in particular.
- 3. take photos and make a small description of the location and the recordings.
The material was published in a pamflet that were placed at the installation so the more curious audience could dig deeper into the sounds, locations and the artists.
This first edition was developed to the multitude festival Smag Verden in Copenhagen. The installation was placed in a small half open shed with three headphones so more people could cooperate on choosing which sounds should be in their own composistion.
Lyt til Verden is the first branch on my interest in developing installations and performances based on field recordings. I’ll make new versions of this project in particular and theres also other stuff in development for the greater project Digital Nordic 2015/16.
The workshop where held from august 8th-16th 2013 at the artcenter MoKS in Mooste Estonia and investigated the local surroundings, old ruins and leftover spaces with the goal to appropriate objects and structures into building temporary sound installations.
Together with an extremely cosy, small group of dedicated sound artists I spent a week doing talks, temporary interventionist sound installations and even a spontaneous concert for the general public of Mooste. Among other things we turned two allmetal sheds from a pumping station at an abandoned land-fill area into a great guitar-based feedback system.

Thanks to Kulturkontakt Nord and Eesti Kultuurkapital for funding, the MoKS crew for cooperation, shelter and general warmth and Juuso Paaso, Sirpa Jokinen and Juan Duarte for participating, cooking gorgeous meals and bringing life and content to the workshop.
First weekend in february, I’ll be heading to Århus where I’m invited to do an underwater soundinstallation and concert together with the exciting Århus-based underwater orchestra AquaSonic who has kindly asked me to participate in their gig. I’ll bring a re-developed soundsystem from the Sejerø-festival project together with a re-found love for my 6-string bass and violinbow + the various effectpedal feedback-setups I’m using in my Rainforest constellations.
The gig is held sunday february 3rd at 19 hrs. in the swimming hall called Spanien as part of the greater event “Kærlighed” arranged by the peoples university in Århus.

September 14th there’s an opening concert for the 4th Rainforest installation workshop that Derek Holzer and I’ve done together. This time we have 6 local participants and it is the first time it is set up in public space. We’re collaborating with and are supported by Kulturforvaltningen, Århus Kommune and www.byiby.dk. In Århus we’re situated amidst a very interesting ongoing temporary urban space experiment right in the center of Århus. (see below for location)
The opening starts at 17 hrs with a concert and saturday and sunday between 12-17 the Rainforest will run as an ongoing performance installation. Free entry and everybody is invited to come and have a go with (amongst other stuff) our 3 meter long scrapmetal urinal.

Thursday, july 5th, at 17hrs, Obernkarbi will perform a special sonic intervention for the Rill-bar @ Roskilde festivals Sonic Zone by the pavillion junior stage.
Obernkarbi, has prepared the area by mic’ing up hidden places of acoustic interest, and will be using the live inputs to create a lively, meditative and interactive soundscape. The concert will be held in a special headphone system providede by the Rillbar.
See more on sonic interventionisms and other performance installations here and further on.
In a bus, I’ve installed contact microphones connected to a multichannel soundsystem to be operated in a MAX/MSP and Reaper controlled environment. I’ll be playing by the sounds coming from the bus, as it drives through the landscape with passengers sitting inside.
The result can be compared to some sort of windchime-like setup, organically developing and gradually changing as I try to play along the sounds coming from the bus journeying through the landscape.

As predicted, half a year later we find ourselves invited to do a performance and interview to the national childrens channel DR Ramasjang, as part of their friday afternoon live show.
Theme of the day in Ramasjang is “naughty friday”, and what a perfect setting for a group of circuit disturbing/-ed soundnerds to unfold their talents.

Due to the increase in numbers of family members, the birth of my beautiful son Anker, Obernkarbi has been somewhat distracted towards family matters in this first half of 2012. Some few projects have been on their way, and they’re emerging throughout the summer.
Keep posted and you won’t miss a thing
Have a nice summer whereever you are
