The Agreement is an installation based on feedback through eight circular saw blades using contact microphones and tactile transducers. Each saw blade generates a feedback loop which produces a set of frequencies that resonates in the blade itself. When the different saw blades are fed into each other, creating new and bigger feedback loops, new tones appear, and the only frequencies that will be heard are those that the included blades have in common. In this way, the installation will always create new tones and frequencies, all depending on which saw blades that are connected to each other.
HISS is a poetic work and in its core lies our relationship to nature. The work is grounded in the fields of acoustic ecology and listening practices and pays attention to surrounding soundscapes. HISS is an inquiry of the North Bohemian region in the Czech Republic, an area marked with the heavy coal mining industry (surface mining of brown coal) for over two centuries. There are major devastations and changes in the relief of the landscape - considering that some of the industries are still up and running, while others are closing down and in the process of the land-recovery. There is a number of villages and rivers that were physically moved and removed in favor of the economical growth.
