Lydbank, presented by Lydgalleriet at the Borealis Festival, Bergen, 14 March 2007

A one day exhibition in the bank Sparebanken Vest, Kaigaten 4 from 08.30 - 15.50 by Leon Milo, Jørgen Larsson, Maia Urstad, Jana Winderen, Thorolf Thuestad and Jørgen Træen as part of Borealis Festival 07.


The artists works were presented in between the bank workers desks and daily activities, in the doorway, stairs and in the vaults.

Jana´s sounds were based on hydrophone recordings in and around the glacier Vatnajökull, hydrophone recordings of catfish in the warm river Ping, melting of ice around a frozen down hydrophone in the river Akerselva, melting of snow in Norway, canals and rivers in various location around the world.

Jana also sent small samples of melting ice sounds by Bluetooth to the public in the bank, for them to bring home or to play together as miniature public concert by mobile phone.

There were LCD displays in the bank of the glacier Vatnajökull and instructions on how to receive the Bluetooth transmitted MP3 files.
