Responding Arches / Make Sound Residency
Anja Cecilie Petersen
5 February 2024 - 11 February 2024
"Responding Arches" is an evolving sound installation, rooted in research into the interplay between sound and physical structures. Drawing inspiration from architectural arches, Anja Cecilie Petersen explores the acoustic nuances of spaces like tunnels and gothic churches and has translated these into ceramic forms reminiscent of bells. During the Make Sound Residency she will work on an installation which can be played by percussionists in addition to a soundscape based on recordings with sounds of the ceramics. "Responding Arches" represents different spaces brought together in the same place. Several architectural sites that are in themselves incompatible are fused, and through sound they begin to intertwine.
Materize – Work in progress sharing
Sól Ey, Alvilda Faber Striim, Paulína Šmatláková, Abraham Rademacher
16 February 2024 - 22 February 2024
Using her homemade wearable instrument Hreyfð, Sól Ey has been working on a new performance for 4 dancers called Materize. The instrument is the result of Sól Ey’s extensive research on instruments that create sounds with gestures. It uses microphones and speakers to create audio feedback, processed with a microcontroller and sensor signals in real- time, all attached to the performer’s body. The feedback creates a field of audible possibilities that are performed with movement. As a part of the Make Sound Residency at IAC, Sól Ey has worked together with 3 performers to develop a sound-movement language, spatial sonic choreography, and explored the possibility of interacting with the audience.

Formationer (Formations)
Jonas Olesen, Michael Mørkholt
6 December 2023 - 18 December 2023
At IAC Jonas Olesen & Michael Mørkholt will be working on further development of their audio-visual piece "Formationer" (Formations). In the piece they explore the formations of organic moving figures projected on paper sheets. The piece uses loudspeakers, mirror foil and sinewave generators. The mirror foil is mounted on loudspeaker cones, and mechanically animated by playing various frequency sweeps with the generators. A number of lamps shines light on the mirror foil that are then reflected onto paper sheets hanging from the ceiling. The investigation is thus a combination of the aesthetic of purely abstract forms, and their relationship with exact frequency combinations.

In extension to the exhibition, Otto will give a talk, sharing her thoughts and research related to the project.

Family life – recomposed / Make Sound Residency
Yann Coppier, Gry Søbye

This project aims at recording the everyday life in a family through a network of 16 microphones set in an apartment located on a pedestrian street, in Nørrebro, Copenhagen, in a family of four. The technique used will be adapted to the place, capturing its acoustics in ways that won’t allow to dissociate the place from the people nor from objects used.
Sound Interaction Through Physical Phenomena
Nicklas Lundberg
7 December 2021 - 2 January 2022
Nicklas Lundberg continues to explore and research interaction with sound through interfaces that use physical phenomena as the vehicle for generating content while the human performer remains the agent in terms of form. Many inspiring questions arise when using an environment like this: about the nature of musical gestures, the correlation between agent and sound; topics that are as important today as they have been in the past, not the least in the history of electro acoustic and acousmatic music and theory.
Radical Listening Session #1: POINTS OF TRANSDUCTION / Make Sound Residency
Jenny Gräf Sheppard

HUSH
Elin Maria Johansson, Vibeke Bryld
8 December 2021 - 14 December 2021
The project takes it outset in the previous work, ‘Hush’, a 10 min sensorial VR installation that lets the user become the subject of a Northern myth. During their research time at IAC, the artists will experiment on how to deepen the relationship between the inner experience and the physical space around us. For this purpose, both light, image and interactive techniques are used. The aim is to shift the sensorial experience from the virtual area to the real one, thereby strengthening the sensorial experience of the work.
Sounding the Body Electric / Make Sound Residency
Jenny Gräf Sheppard, MV Carbon
16 December 2021 - 22 December 2021
The Body Electromagnetic is a tactile and audio instrument-sculpture developed with feedback from residents from three social institutions in Denmark; one for the blind, one for youth with psychological issues, and one for older people with Dementia. The work involves activating flat speakers that produce sounds via coming in contact with hand held magnets controlled by the users. The aim for the Make Sound residency is to develop the instrument-sculpture further and to record and mix the sounds produced from it by the residents of the institutions as well as those Jenny makes herself.
GESTALT MINIMAL; the love songs
Greta Eacott, Aase Nielsen

ლოცვა / LOTSVA
Mariam Gviniashvili
22 November 2021 - 26 November 2021
During the residency, Mariam will be working on a second version of her piece for multichannel electronics - ლოცვა / LOTSVA, commissioned by Ny Musikks Komponistgruppe.

As she collects the recordings, she creates a new version of the piece each time it is performed. The first version of the piece was performed in Oslo, Fredrikstad and Trondheim and consisted of 24 songs from 20 countries. The second version will be composed during the residency and presented at the IAC on November 26 (more info TBA).
Female Prayers
Nevin Tuna Erönde
15 November 2021 - 21 November 2021
'Female Prayers' is based on the idea that one day we will hear female voices calling for prayer in public spaces. A peaceful message, where soundscapes are used as a medium to explore social and cultural issues, religion and gender through the lens of intersectionality. The story is unfolding through spoken letters addressed to the artist Nevin Tuna Erönde’s, late maternal grandmother, who was a practicing Muslim. Erönde re-connects to her by drawing parallels between the Muslim spiritual practices, and her own yoga practice. The performative art installation removes the boundaries between the audience and scene.

Each practice session is unique to the moment and context.
PARADIGM
Kaia Zoe
18 October 2021 - 24 October 2021
The project “PARADIGM – Holobionts, interconnected matter and stories from the periphery” consists of several media – here a spatial installation with a smaller selection of sculpture, sound, light and xerox excerpts from a book in becoming together with a first version of the book. A holobiont is made up of a host organism serving space and sharing nutrients with other life forms, like sub species in the human microbiome. Together with the external microbial and molecular world the entity of our cells and microbes form an ecological continuum – we are nature even when culture has cut out our awareness of that interdependence.

On the Subject of Tests: Rehearsing the Examination
Sasha Bergstrom-Katz
23 August 2021 - 29 August 2021
'On the Subject of Tests' is a practice-led research project that examines the designs and procedures of psychometric testing. Specifically, it opens up and analyses three twentieth-century-intelligence tests developed to assess children and adults in the United States and beyond. Interwoven in the history of eugenics, education practices, military and prison regimes and the neoliberalisation of workplaces and schools, these intelligence tests deserve an affective and embodied unpacking. Using the IAC’s Black Room as site, artist and researcher Sasha Bergstrom-Katz will record extended rehearsals of the tests' manuals in a project entitled 'On the Subject of Tests: Rehearsing the Examination'.

Immersive Days #1: Blackout
tim bishop
9 June 2021 - 13 June 2021
"Blackout" is a sensory performance and sound work for one person at a time. The work takes place in total darkness and uses spatial audio and haptic feedback to create a multi-sensory and evocative environment for a powerfully self-reflective experience. An unseen voice and a physical guide encourage participants on an introspective journey, exploring both virtual spaces and the physical room through 3D sound and touch.
