White Noise (2012) by Miriam Nielsen

Into the Landscape 2012– a series of short landscape films by Miriam Nielsen and a selection of Danish contemporary artists.

One place, one day and one meeting sets the framework for these films. The films combine landscape photography and artistic reportage. She has invited 4 artists to show her a particular landscape, which is significant to them. Within this framework – one place, one day and one meeting – different scenarios unfold, each film attempting to portray the uniqueness of a particular landscape as well as the artist’s unique relationship with the location through images and sound design.

In WHITE NOISE. Tobias Kirstein walks through a dense forest with his eyes closed using the white noise reflected by the trees to navigate.

Sleepless Dream – an ensemble of imagined forces within its society that is poised to tear it apart (2012)

Collaborative exhibition of sound and sculpture with Charlotte Walentin at FASAD, Malmø.

“Den svenske billedkunster Charlotte Walentin og den danske lydkunstner TR Kirstein står bag en-dags udstillingen “…an ensemble of imagined forces within its society that is poised to tear it apart””. Poltergeists fanget i metal, indre stemmer mod plexiglas, en foruroligende drømmetilstand spændt op mellem ekstrem ro og uro, stasis og vibration. Baseret i et minimum af samtaler og forestillinger om drømte forhørsteknikker bringes det umælende i fokus gennem et 4 timer langt forløb med minimale forandringer i vente.”

The election campaign of Dror Feiler (2010)

In the 2010 Swedish general election, artist and composer Dror Feiler was a candidate for the Left Party (Swedish: Vänsterpartiet) in Stockholm.

To help him spread his message, I decided to include his election campaign in the exhibition I created with Maiken Vibe Bauer as part of the Images-festival in Copenhagen.

Dror Feiler obtained 1,784 personal preference votes in Stockholm Municipality (4.51% of the Left Party votes, the second most voted candidate on the list after party chairman Lars Ohly) and 629 personal preference votes in Stockholm County (1.99% of the Left Party votes).

Lights People

Lights People with Mikka Vainio, Click Festival.

Lights People was founded in 2003 by Sune TB Nielsen and TR Kirstein. Toke Tietze Mortensen joined later.

Lights People have long worked with the power of the general electricity network which runs through everybody’s everyday. They use completely analog electricity creating large explosive bassheavy drone-like random force fields and they often invite a fourth artist to guide and create the sound field through the mixer.
