1000 recorders and drawn sound

Create your own imaginary soundscape, when Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard premieres 'Potential for 1000 recorders' and 'Immersive Sound' in Malmö 21-29 August

'Potential for 65 Triangles' (2018)

At Inter Arts Center in Malmö, Sweden, Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard will present two different works: 'Potential for 1000 recorders' 21-25 August and 'Immersive Sound' 26-29 August. 'Potential for 1000 recorders' is a sound installation that operates within a potential state without any physical sound. The potential state of the installation will allow the listener/audience to create their own imaginary soundscape by using their inner ear, and therefore the listening experience would be different for everybody.

'Potential for 1000 recorders' is the follower to other soundless sonic potentials by Løkkegaard such as 'Potential for 9 snare drums' (2017) & 'Potential for 65 triangles' (2018).

'Immersive Sound' (2018)

'Immersive Sound' is an ongoing series of drawn sound, and derives from the tradition of pioneers such as Rudolf Pfenninger an Oskar Fischinger. Due to the large size of these drawings, they offer a silent immersive sonic potential. 

Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard considers his work to be a basic research in sound, and is interested in exploring the sensuousness of sound and stimulate new ways of approaching sound.

Working with imaginary sound, Løkkegaard is currently conducting an artistic research project at the RMC in Copenhagen entitled Music for the inner ear.

In this project Løkkegaard is composing imaginary music only hearable for the inner ear of the listener. A kind of music in which the listener also becomes the composer and a kind of music that unfolds itself in a utopic space - a space of potentiality.
