| the shape
of sound to come / Lillesalen
Neuf, Oslo / September
the shape of sound to come is a descriptive title, connecting the exhibition and the collaborative process with Rolf-Erik Nystrøm, who used my
work (shape) to compose a piece of new music (sound). The works I presented were monoprint, drawing, and sculpture made by reshaped and
translated musical instruments
the shape of sound to come also refers to Ornette Coleman's avant-garde album The Shape Of Jazz To Come (1959). Coleman discarded
traditional concepts, and embraced improvisation and the dissolving of structure, as methods for creating music. I was interested in how these
methods correlated with my work process.
