Works for Listening I-III (2017)
For 8 channel sound
Works for Listening is a series of electroacoustic works where listening aesthetics and our psychological categorisation of sound are explored. The material is taken from everyday life – all worked and distorted in different ways. Each piece is created by one organic sound source, to a varying degree reconstructed by tone, percussion, noise, resonance and voice layers. The sonic material in Works for Listening are physical and tactile, and are often abstracted from their original states. With Works for Listening, Tine’s desire is to to create increased empathy to our surroundings through listening.
