Eva Sjuve "Krispr (Spatialized)" (2021)

about the artist

Krispr (Spatialized) is part of an ongoing investigation in everyday sounds and alternative ways to experience sound. This work is an acoustic meditation over the "displaced familiar," using a very familiar sound in Sweden that can be traced back to the Middle Ages, the sound of Krispr. This work focuses on listening and the attention of spatiality and temporality.

The background to this work is equally inspired by Foley sound production for film, and the historical avant-garde exploring the boundary of musical performance and the sonic capabilities of everyday objects with text scores, from Fluxus artists to Happenings, and the work of Pauline Oliveros. This score seeks to explore the rich sonic texture and variation that can be produced playfully, using Krispr as a spatialized sound instrument.
