Anna Wærum fragment -al
by Anna Wærum
Electronic collage, experimental, fieldrecording, leftfield or beautiful wistful otherworldly listening.
“In her sound-collages Anna Wærum blurs the boundaries between language, sound and music. From this particular point, a secretive, personal and dreamy sound-scape emerges. According to Anna the collages are made ”out of a wish to examine the moods, stories and poetic qualities which are buried in our aural world, using the everyday sounds I meet in my life. An exploration of the exact moment when a field-recording looses its concrete meaning and becomes something else, something we hear as music”.
The sound-collages are composed of Anna’s private sound archive consisting of phonerecordings made within the last 3-4 years. This archive is continuous and recorded without the purpose of composition, but as diary-recordings of sounds-bits she wants to remember or sample, of thoughts or conversations she wants to revisit.
