Alien Sounds

Using the common name Alien Sounds a group of students from the Jutland Art Academy and DIEM present four works of art for the biennale sound art festival Struer Tracks . Through sound, objects, video, and electronics, the pieces focus on the notion of the unknown, eg. the sounds of unfamiliar places and inaccessible places, the hidden sounds in the matter that surrounds us or the sound of a possible unknown future or past.

Last but not least the pieces thematises the journey towards the unknown that the sounds illustrate. A journey often taking place in the realm somewhere between fiction and reality.

The fiction is a general theme for the pieces, made especially for the empty spaces of an abandoned slaughterhouse on the Struer harbour. This location offers a unique conditions for the different works of art. The exhibition is the culmination of a long process where students from the Jutland Art Academy and DIEM have collaborated for two semesters, exploring the theme of location specific sound as the starting point for a work of art.
