I would like to ask something of you. My installation Soundtracks will be shown at Den Frie in Copenhagen in June and I would like to ask you for a contribution. The idea behind Soundtracks is to build an archive of memories of sound. Memories of sounds which were important to someone, that struck them or stayed with them. Soundtracks wants to research which kind of sounds get remembered, and how they are remembered. Can we hear those sounds again in our heads, or can we only remember the circumstances of the situation; the outlines, the edges of the sound?
And that’s why I would like to ask you to take a moment and try to find your memory of a sound, a sound that was important to you. And I would want to ask you to write down your memory, on paper. And if you could send that memory by post/snail mail to this address:
SNYK, c/o Kristine Bakken (Soundtracks), Graabrødretorv 16, st. th. DK-1154 København K, Denmark
You can find some more info on Soundtracks on this URL: http://versonatura.org/stijn/soundtracks/
Thanks in advance,
PS: It is important that the memories are hand written or hand made, so please, no emails or typed letters. Apart from that, you can write in any language you prefer.
