Taktile Dröhnung von Marta Forsberg

Unter dem Titel “Tkać”, das im Polnischen “weben” bedeutet, bringt die schwedisch-polnische Künstlerin Marta Forsberg ein Album mit zwei zirka zwanzigminütigen Tracks heraus. “LED AND LOVE SOUNDS” wurde 2015 in Berliner me Collector’s Room, einer Kunstgalerie, während einer Streicher- und LED-Lichtperformance aufgenommen. Das folgende “Weave and Dream”, aufgenommen im selben Jahr in der Stockholmer Royal Academy of Music, basieet primär auf der Verwendung eines OP-1-Synthesizers und wurde für die Veröffentlichung von dem griechischen Dröhner Nikos Veliotis (MMMΔ) neu abgemischt. “Tkać” erscheint digital und als LP bei Thanatosis.

“A slow transition from playing on my instrument, to play only my electronics. Letting the violin hang there with me on stage, listening to itself. Following how the drones slowly change, minimal repetitions that never stay the same. And you can hear the gallery clearly, it moves sometimes in the background. Noises of moving bodies. The sound of listening bodies, trying to be still, maybe falling asleep shortly in the middle, and you hear how they drop something on the floor. How nice it is to hear the audience.

I would book the big concert hall in my old music college (this building is now destroyed, because the school got a new house), and there I hung my LED light strips and tried out different constellations. The music came after the lights, and reflects the pulsation and upwards going movement of the lights. I also remember that I wanted to create a piece that would erase my own presence on stage, so for the premiere I hung black curtains around the stage and moved behind them together with my friend Sylvain Devaux, and from there we turned the LED lights on and off using remote controls.” (Marta Forsberg)
