As part of Undervejs, Obernkarbi developed concept and material for an outdoor sound installation at the festival WorldWideWords. The setup was to install soundscapes playing from benches, portals and along a forest path using my Rolen Star transducers and multichannel audiosystems.
The task given by the festival was to do a work inspired by the languaging of contemporary youth compared to the thoughts on language by Grundtvig, a danish national litterate and philosopher.
Background material on Grundtvig was gathered as well as raw material from socio-linguistic research by professor Jens Normann Jørgensen, whom I also interviewed on the topic.
This soundbit is an stereomixdown of an excerpt from the 8 channel system along the forest path.
