Artist Talk

In this artist talk Trond Lossius presents documentation from a series of audio-visual installations and discuss how his work on sound in installations have evolved over time, engaging with site, place, field recordings, the use of spatial audio in installations, audio-visual relations, and his interest in being part of collaborative artistic processes.



Slow Time Change in Poço do Canto (2022, excerpt)

In 2022 Trond Lossius had a six-week artist residency in the upper Douro, resulting in a site-specific installation based on audio and video recordings from the village of Poço do Canto and surroundings. The first part of the concert is a concert version of the sound of this installation. The artist residency was part of the ViViFiCAR project, organised and produced by @ci.cloplataforma


Edgelands (2019)

Edgelands (2019) starts from a series of field recordings from the suburb and fringes of the city. These zones are critical as urban infrastructures, residential areas and for transport and industry. Still, they come across as bland and anonymous, haphazardly developed and aesthetically neglected. The suburban field recordings reveal an Anthropocene reality. Insects, birds, wind and water cohabitate the sonic environment alongside footsteps, voices, dogs, traffic, trains, metros, ventilation fans, aeroplanes and helicopters. Edgelands makes use of field recordings from Bergen, Stockholm, Stoke on Trent, Cape Town and Windhoek. Commissioned by NOTAM, Edgelands premiered at the Ultima festival in 2019.  




Trond Lossius investigates relations between sound, place and space in field recordings, audio-visual installations, and collaborative cross-disciplinary projects. Using surround (Ambisonic) microphones he records places rather than sounds, primarily engaging with suburban sound environments. He develops open-source software for spatial audio and real-time media for his projects, and he has published research in international conferences and journals on sound and music computing.He is professor and Head of PhD at The Norwegian Film School, Inland University of Applied Sciences and professor II at The Grieg Academy, The University of Bergen.
