Forgotten Landscapes

exploring the ancient sounds of our planet through voice and soundscapes to find a new language for the future

the story

a human voice exploring new ways to be in the world, co- exist, to co-sing, to find a post anthropocene language

Katrine Faber (voice, loops) + Michael Reiley (soundscapes, electronics)

Michael Reiley

Musician and composer Michael Reiley (Mikronesia) explores the relationship between present moment awareness, deep time and humanity’s personal connection through listening. Often creating his acousmatic works from field recordings processed and composed into multilayered, multi-textured sound worlds through a process he calls “sonic photography.” This process involves site-specific recordings of physical locations, re-imagined using digital processing techniques analogous to photographic development and collage. His aim is to reframe the everyday world both as grand statement that stretches out in all directions of time and as ephemeral instant of precious connection. His compositions have been strongly influenced by his practice of meditation, we well as Deep Listening–the integrative sound practice of composer Pauline Oliveros. In 2016 he completed a certification program in Deep Listening studying with Deep Listening pioneer Pauline Oliveros.

Katrine Faber

Katrine Faber is a singer, actress, voiceperformer, storyteller and composer from Denmark. She is artistic director of Teater Viva. She has through the years composed music for her performances, installations and concerts. She has researched and explored the possibillities of the human voice for many years and continues to do so. She has travelled and exchanged songs, ways of singing and stories in as different places of the world as Mexico, Nepal, Spain, Tuva in Central Asia, Uzbekistan, Greenland, Iceland and isolated places in the North of Scandinavia

In 2015 Katrine created the project Singing Our Place: a Nordic cross art project about humans, nature and our common future. The working theme is connections or disconnections between humans and nature (outside and within ourselves); searching for the mythic, the colloquial, the comic, the tragic, the personal and the universal aspect. Katrine is working with the human voice making soundscapes, sound-pictures, songs and texts.

In Singing Our Place Katrine works with voice and body sounds and sounds from nature. Everything is sound. Everything is a landscape of sound.The human body is a landscape of sound. The earth is a body of sounds. Using the human voice in all kinds of ways in sounds and songs and soundscapes Katrine is exploring new ways and dialogues within and between the languages of humans, animals and our living surroundings.
