Flux of Fragments (voice/loops/electronics – Line Horneland)
what would it take
to be filled with light
in the middle
open and become
would it take for my scream to become one
with the silence
A central issue in her work is whether the voice through the artistic trajectory has a potential for the individual’s listening experience in the public space. The vocalscape is seen as an auditive framework, a potential sound space for centering in the listener’s own story, in a process of tuning in to…something, in the paradox of the desired state of flux, the perception of fragments, and the friction between them..the in-between possibly being the true sound space?
Line Horneland (Norway) has her background in the music field as a vocalist, drawing on different kinds of material from jazz to free improvisation and loops, evolving into an artistic practice on vocalscapes for installations and soundworks. The solo album Where nothing has a name was released at Sirr-ecords/Portugal in 2022. Recent installation work includes Beautiful as the flip side of ugly – voicing a sound space (2021) at Stazione di Topolò (Italy), Innimellom er lyden stille (2019) at the sound art festival Il Suono in Mostra (Italy) and at Lydgalleriet (Norway 2018). Since 2016 she has been involved in the interdisciplinary improvisation project Sono Flux. Line has a MA in Creative Disciplines and Learning Processes (Music) from Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, in addition to language studies and education as a physiotherapist.
