Davidsen, Heðin Ziska: Ringar í vatni 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The title of the piece directly translates to “Rings in Water” and is simultaneously the Faroese phrase for the ripple effect. In the scenic village of Gjógv in the Faroe Islands there is a ravine. Back in the day it was used to float the boats used for fishing. What is left of this activity are some metal rings fastened to the bedrock. Together with a field recording of the ocean these rings are the raw material for this piece, which in turn is a sonic representation of being submerged.
