Performed live by Kammerkór Suðurlands (South Iceland Chamber Choir) in Kristskirkja, Reykjavík in March 2017. Composed by Snorri Hallgrímsson Poetry by Elín Elísabet Einarsdóttir Conducted by Hilmar Örn Agnarsson Recorded by Árni Möller Copyright: © 2017 Snorri Hallgrímsson 

Bringing together one of Iceland’s most critically acclaimed choirs alongside a new video work shot on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula the work transports audiences to an immersive soundscape combining live performance with captured footage seeing the choir members sing alongside themselves on screen with their combined echoes diffused over multiple speakers creating various fictional landscapes, from minimalistic to surrealistic.

The work is themed around echoes navigating through space, history and fiction. Working collaboratively with digital artist Jacob Tekiela from Copenhagen, the choir was filmed and recorded whilst singing in the breathtaking landscapes of Iceland. Tinnemans’ imaginative experimental approach to new digital technology fused with conventional sound sources results in an exciting mix of manipulated field recordings and a live musical performance by the full choir.

The composition expresses verisimilitude as a place, similar to the Snaefellsness Peninsula in Iceland where Jobina Tinnemans in collaboration with Jacob Tekiela filmed and recorded the choir. The six new compositions tell the story of how sound is reflected geographically and of who we are and where we came from.
