Edition# Live

September 18, 2019

Edition# (Coppier&Magnusson) played a concert in Brønshøj Watertower on the 5th of September 2019 to mark the ending of their 10 speaker soundinstallation ‘Edition#1 – A soft fall’ that had been playing in the tower over the summer, as the opening installation in the new artspace Urum – Institute for Efterklang in the old watertower in Brønshøj a suburb of Copenhagen. An amazing structure with a massive reverb, one of the longest in Denmark with up to 40 seconds.

The 2 hour long concert was played on the same 10 speaker soundsystem using a Monome Aleph and a Sequentix Cirklon sequencer controlling a MacBeth Elements analog synthesiser that was processed via a specialised software as a main soundsource. Other soundsources were Lom Electroslush electromagnetic listening device, a thunder maker and contact microphones placed in various places in the tower. Sounds from the audience moving around the tower is also a part of the general soundscape.
The concert was recorded with 5 microphones and we are in the process of editing the recording for a future release.

With support from the Danish Art Foundation. #statenskunstfond  #kunstgørenforskel.

Mika Vainio – Triode Kuvaputki

May 25, 2019

I am very happy to be a part of this exhibition.

A tribute to the late great Mika Vainio (of Pan Sonic).

Vaino-Triod

Triode Kuvaputki (53 min, one minute for each year of Mika’s life).

In 1999, Finnish electronic arch experimentalists Mika Vainio and IIpo Vaisanen, embarked on their legendary Around the World Tour as Pan Sonic, along with artist Edward Quist as visualizer and documentarian. The collaboration culminated in the seminal film Kuvaputki (Cathode Ray Tube). In 2017, a tragic accident in Normandy, France took Mika Vainio’s life, leaving behind a monumental body of work. His work with Ilpo Vaisanen as Pan Sonic, and numerous solo works and collaborations across the art world, illustrate his influence over a generation. After asking some of Vainio’s sound art contemporaries, and the emergent drivers of the new generation, to contribute a soundscape in Mika’s memory, Quist reinterpreted some of the film ‘s methods as a kind of spiritual sequel for a post Vainio landscape. Twenty years after Kuvaputki, with a poignant capstone composition by Ilpo Vaisanen, and Dirk Dresselhaus as die Angel, Triode Kuvaputki is intended to be as ever evolving a work as its progenitor.

Edition_Poster

Edition#, consisting of Runar Magnusson and Yann Coppier, are attempting to reveal the depths of the water tower to its listeners. Together they create a non-intrusive and warm room in the massive concrete, reverberant structure, filtering out the sounds from the outside while exploring the foundations of what makes this alien yet functional piece of architecture a unique place to experience using one’s ears.

Edition#1 – A soft fall played on 10 loudspeakers in a place where the sound constantly plays with its own shadow, painting the walls with swirling sound while bursts of noise and percussive elements reveal the room like lightnings would do in total darkness.

The exploration will consist of three parts: an installation to set the fundaments for a new world, a concert to bring new life to it, and a virtual release to keep it alive in a parallel universe.
