By Eva Sidén & Christian Rønn
This version of "Inside" is for two grand pianos (one prepared with special made objects), 7-channel electronics and video. The 7- channel electronic part of the piece is created with recordings from the Organ and the Grand Piano in the concerthall Studio Acusticum in Piteå, using a large array of microphones, capturing both the very near sounds as well as the reverberation from a long distance.
Additional mixing at EMS (Elektronmusikstudion, centre for Swedish electroacoustic music and sound-art) in Stockholm.
Video-footage from inside the instruments and concerthall have been manipulated and adopted into an accompanying visual-experience as a part of the installation.During our residency in Piteå in 2018, the word “Inside” became a more and more obvious theme; relating for different reasons and with different connotations, to Piteå as a city, the building that houses Studio Accusticum, as well as the instruments, and to our daily work harvesting sounds in the instruments.
