Nazare Soares ha creado esta pieza visual para “July”, el nuevo trabajo de la banda de música electrónica y neopop HYENA, álbum que será publicado en Settheory Records, a mediados de octubre de 2018. El trabajo audiovisual está inspirado en elementos de ausencia y distorsión creados sobre espejos rotos; desconexiones y entrelazamientos de sombras a través de paisajes ficcionales. Una forma única y original de reinterpretar la música y su relación con el mundo que nos rodea.
I will be presenting my thesis “History Decays into Images not Stories” as part of Beside the Screen Conference on the 5th-6th of July in Porto at ISMAI and CIAC.

Happy Birthday 2,2 0 ! We are very happy and excited to announce, today first anniversary of 2,2 0 Sonic Architecture of The Inner Space, that the Invisibledrum will be back in Trondheim on the 7th of June, under the umbrella of Hendelser på Nyhavna 2018! (2,2) 0 – DORA will be taken at the Norwegian National Archives building Dora 1, entrance B. A gesture for allowing to release geological and historical trauma via poetical invocations. A navigation into a psychoacoustic space exploring the inner through spatial embodiment. Gratulerer med dagen!!
(2,2) 0 – Sonic Architecture of the Inner Space is back in Trondheim under the umbrella of Hendelser på Nyhavna 2018 7th – 10th June.
Opening: 7th of June at 17h.
(2,2) 0 – DORA is located at the Norwegian National Archives building Dora 1, entrance B. ( 2,2) 0 – Sonic Architecture of the Inner Space is an interactive spatial sound composition in a completely black space, accompanied by a film installation and a durational performance. A navigation into a psychoacoustic space exploring the inner through spatial embodiment.
(2,2) 0 – DORA 2018 version is created within the historical context of 2WW german U-Boats base in Trondheim, the largest naval base in North Europe, started in 1941 but remained unfinished. Being known how the environmental impact Dora Naval Base had onto Trondheim harbour and surrounding, (2,2) 0 – DORA focus on the earth materials affected by such construction process and how those are currently expressed on Trondheim environmental, historical and cultural context. During the construction period, a considerable amount of alien material was imported to Norway for building the base, being that local soil and native material was incompatible to engineering planning, Dora was never approved by geologist professionals at that time. Thus (2,2) 0 – DORA is created as a gesture for allowing to released geological and historical trauma via poetical invocation. By using sonic references of echolocation, navigation and sea life aural qualities, (2,2) 0 – DORA seeks to connect the 4 historical naval base surveillance locations within Trondheim Fjord; Agdenes Fyrstasjon, Hysnes Fort, Brettingen Fort and Dora.
(2,2) 0 – Sonic Architecture of the Inner Space has been shown at ArtScience Museum in Singapore June 2017 and at Lademoen Kunstnerverksted and Trondheim Kunstmuseum in May 2017.
The work is created and produced by artists Amalia Fonfara, Nazare Soares and Øystein Kjørstad Fjeldbo. Sponsored by NBK – Norske Billedkunstnere.
