Karen Power (IR), Sounding Water (2015, UA). In Sounding Water Karen Power will combine her interest in field recording, our worlds natural timing, musical structures and the performance space, in a partially improvised and composed laptop performance based on water in its many states. The emphasis of this live electronics performance is on highlighting the many audible and inaudible features of water in all its various states - from the frozen Arctic ice-waters to the fluid-flowing Irish Blackwater River and the deafening underworld in the Laotian rice fields. Karen’s partially-improvised soundscape performances uniquely create simultaneously real and imaginary soundscapes for audiences to wander and explore. She specialises in using audible and inaudible environmental and every day sounds, all of which she has recorded from around the world, as catalysts for constructing multiple sonic paths and soundscapes, which could not physically coexist outside of each artist-made performance space. Karen’s intention is closely aligned with her compositional practice and a desire to play with that fragile space, which lies between the comfort in recognizing a sound and your personal association with it, and the wish to move beyond this into hearing new sonic possibilities for that same sound. Audiences are invited to find their own way into each and every sound. Sounding Water will be diffused through a quadraphonic system and uses only field recordings of water.
