Project week

The sound of Ergan Kystfort as a sonic and historical phenomenon is the starting point for my stay in Bud during Møre og Romsdal Art Center's project week in September 2020. Ergan Kystfort was established by German troops from 1941 to 1945 as part of the Atlantic Wall, the German defense that stretched from France in the south to Finland in the north. The hard manual labour during the construction was carried out by Polish and Soviet prisoners of war.

Ergan Kystfort is a result of historical processes, but it is also a complex sound phenomenon. During the project week I will work with outdoor sounds through field recordings of natural sounds from Bud, but also man-made sound spaces in the form of the specific acoustics of Ergan Kystfort.

The area has many complex acoustic spaces, including a large water tank far below the ground. These acoustics will be mapped through acoustic measurements. In this way, it is possible to map the acoustic imprint of a space in the same way as one can make an imprint of a three-dimensional object. This sound material can be further investigated during the production of the finished work. With these techniques, the sounding acoustic and historical perspectives can be examined in a composite and complex work.
