Learning to Liste: a project with
Bang & Olufsen and Royal College of Art
2016



The idea behind this sound compostion is to reflect on church bell sounds that I recorded when in Vilnius last year. Daily bell sounds, banging on at the exact same time of the day, for a set duration, for decades, I’d assume. It made me think of ritual, repetitiveness, continuity, sustained sounds and vibrations.

In response to it, I produced the sound that is a raw, very little treated and fairly primitive, ongoing, analogue synthesizer drone. Each sound layer follows the same rhythmic pattern, mirroring the pattern of the church bell. When I think of the piece visually, I see metallic and melting liquid textures, pulsing continuously, creating a sense of recurring ritual of eternal sound patterns.
