Six Pillars - 17th June 2019 (Venice Biennial:  Dark Morph)

Six Pillars - 17th June 2019 (Venice Biennial: Dark Morph)

Fari Bradley focuses on choice contemporary Middle Eastern, North African and South Asian sound, art and culture. This week: Dark Morph – The So(ng)qe/Tovuto Kyrrahafið Sound Field (https://www.ocean-space.org/exhibitions/-1). On view until 30 June 2019 at The Ocean Space as part of Venice Biennial, this sound installation is by Dark Morph, the newly formed duo of composer Carl Michael von Hausswolff and musician and vocalist Jónsi of Sigur Rós. The So(ng)qe/Tovuto Kyrrahafið Sound Field synthesizes diffracting patterns of sound waves with ocean waves, the sounds of whales, fish, crustaceans, and the wind recorded during Dark Morph’s expedition with The Ocean Space organisers the TBA21–Academy, to Fiji, South Pacific. We asked the duo, in a time of more urgent deconstructions of nationalism, how Icelandic the final sound was and how it is influenced by the lack of daylight in winter months.
