sonic blue

For seven sound sources, six speakers and local wireless radio station with an unlimited number of headphones.


It is a double examination of deep realms when Angélica Castelló takes the audience on a journey to her imaginary underwater world “sonic blue.” The sea has always held a great fascination for the composer and musician. And to her it symbolises the subconscious. The acoustic basis of “sonic blue” consists of field recordings, recordings of natural and environmental noises that Castelló gathered together with the biologist Heike Vester in the Norwegian Lofoten in summer, where Vester heads Ocean Sounds, an organisation founded by her which is dedicated to researching marine mammals and protecting the marine environment. Exploring the omnipresence of music and art in everyday life also implies examining the relationship between culture and nature. (Susanna Niedermayr)
