Kollisi

Tuesday 9 April 2013, by Stefanos Souvatzoglou & Poka

The idea of creating an atmosphere of destruction which gradually guides you through the relieving process of regeneration is the main idea of the duo’s approach.

The constant pulse that transmits a rhythm to the listener’s walking, the irritance created by the piercing sound of welding aluminum pitched down a few semitones, the liquid element and the sencs of flow marks a turning point towards rebirth and the harmony of the birds song underlines nature’s calmness and serenity. Wind is also present and helps the process of casting of a new form.

All the sounds were recorded in a foundry and represent various procedures & sculptural techniques which transformed through sound processing are used to create an experimental soundscape composed of naturally produced sound aimed to make the spectator wonder.
