träger (2018) 3:20
Inspired by and recorded at the Schwerbelastungskörper in Berlin, a solid cylindrical concrete building build as a ‘test object’ by the Nazis to determine the stability of the area’s sandy ground. If suitable, this spot was to be the location of an enormous triumphal arch, three times the size of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. As it was never destroyed, the Schwerbelastungskörper continues to endure time, as an unseemly and indelible reminder of the city’s ugly past. Like a landmark at a historical crossroads, it stands between was is, was, and could have been.

Created using field recordings from the frozen winter landscape in North-Eastern Germany, this piece was created during the ‘Hibernate’ Sound and Performance Art Residency at Betonest. Fimbulwinter was later adapted for a Sonic Ice Sculpture, which was exhibited at Betonest later in the same year.

This work is a collage of original, field, and archival recordings taken from NASA’s Golden Voyager Records, which were launched into space in 1977 on the Voyager spacecraft. As they fly through space in the hopes of meeting intelligent life, the Voyager Records’ efforts to represent life on Earth are already noticeably outdated, evoking past hopes for a future which has never come to pass.
