Performative installation piece 'Flying Speakers'

SØS Gunver Ryberg//DK is working in the intersection between electronic music and sound art. Her characteristic style is recognised for its transformative physical power. Insistent rhythms engage the listener on many levels alongside a meticulous exploration of textures and timbres.

She has been invited to perform or exhibit in cities such as Rio de Janerio, Los Angeles, New york, Istanbul, Berlin and Athens. Recent comissions have included two compositions for The Royal Library multi-channel speaker system in Copenhagen as well as the soundtrack to a touring installation by Dark Matters.

Her work often mixes forms of musical expressions and new media such as concerts, installation art, multichannel speaker setups, video games, performance/dance art, art films, audio walks etc. She works on her own projects and with other artists on gesamtkunstwerker.

About her way of working:

"The wildness of experimentation, curiosity and the process are a very important in the way I work with sound and music. I'm interested in the timbre of sound, it's vibration, it's force and energy and I experiment with a variety of ways to find the expression that will resonate within the listener.

I connect different machines and I use effects, analogue and digital, drum machines, samplers, tape recorders, contact microphones on objects, amplifies, synths, the computer, spectral processing, convolution and more. I'm always into learning new techniques.

Spatilizing sound is very important to me and is a part of most of my work. I work with various multi channel configurations – always created for the specific site or piece. Wanting to make the sound tactile. The sound amour and the flying speakers are examples of make sound/music tactile in the space and as a performative installation element.

In my concerts, performances and installations I often, experiment with staging. I mix different media – such as video, lighting, installation, senses – to create a unique universe in relation to the music – it can be a total installation like ”LOST IN MAPPING” or as my interactive audio walks ”Traces of time” and ”Travel Beyond Direction” or as some of my concerts and performances. When I create my music ideas of how to combine other elements into the performance appears.

I'm exploring different states of consciousness with my sounds and music. I want to express and explore the inner and outer nature of sound. I want to challenge reality, space and time.
