»During my residency at Örö, I plan to work on a series of outdoor and indoor performances under the conceptual umbrella of Cartographic Performances, as well as associated compositions. The idea of my performances and experiments is to listen deeply into and at the specific sites, including plant and animal life, and at the same time into my own mind and body. In particular, I want to explore into the connection or conflicts between nature & humanity, warfare & artistic action, military architecture and biological patterns. I intend to look into closeness and distance in communication, working with perception, reflection, and imagination. The proposed performances can be composed of several disciplines, such as music, sound art, field recording, video, installations, texts, and instrumental performance on site (I bring my Kueng-contrabass recorder). In my practice, the elements I compose with react and interact with each other, like living beings. Left alone, they develop a life of their own, in a biological way.
How far can I go?
How deep can I listen?
Do I still feel secure?
Can I stay with the trouble, with the precariousness?
Can I stay with the vulnerability and gentleness?
Where do I find stability?
I understand what I do as putting together a hot heap of compost, that is, I bring together artistic and sonic matter – to ‘compose’ means to ‘bring together’. This way, the compositional practice becomes a biological process.«
