Fear, the first track on the album ‘Dark Side‘ has been selected to participate on the Soundgate Project in Denmark (2010).
We particulary like the idea of ‘patience’. Quote coming from the site (today unavailable): “The audience will only be able to access the sound through high quality headphones and track information will be displayed on a screen. This means that there’s no audience interaction such as skipping, fast-forwarding or stopping. This clearly challenges new concepts such as ”on-demand” and requires old school skills such as patience, and thus hopefully stimulates focus on the actual work. The project only requires one action from the ”user”: Listening!”
That’s what is so important nowadays and lost: taking time to listen to something – absorb the soundworld – dive deep!
The project is a part of an exposition. “(quote:) The idea behind SoundGate is to create a platform where artists globally can contribute with their sound works and partake in the exhibition that will be presented physically in the town of Aalborg, Denmark, more specifically at Kunsten (the museum of modern art), Utzon Centre (the architectural centre) and Platform4 (a great space where creative people can realize their projects).
With this selection of spaces, the aim is to target a broad audience in order to promote sound art and “cutting edge”-music to new and hopefully curious ears.”
