Sonic Orienteering – Land Shape – Denmark

At Land Shape land art festival at Hanstholm Lighthouse in Denmark we showcased an interactive sound orienteering piece in 5.1 surround sound.

Along with artist Ann Mai Røge and the audience, the sound of the festival site mapped and presented in a 360 degree soundscape of speakers.

The audience was invited to use hand-held recorders to record sounds they found interesting on the festival site, record in a map where the sound was located and bring it back to the growing surround sound piece at the workshop.

The ide was to make the participants more aware of the spatiality of sound.

This piece was part of a brand new land art festival named Land Shape. The festival boasted over 50 international artists that were working both indoors and outside, along with symposiums on land art.
