BRIAN ENO - NEW SOUND INSTALLATION
September 20 - October 3, 2014
The work, newly created in the space at Fylkingen, will consist of a large array of different sound sources: large and small, old and new, found and appropriated, high quality and lo-fi. These elements will be deployed throughout the space for the presentation of a shifting, multi-layered soundscape. The resultant sound of the work being definitively coloured by the physical nature and unique characteristics of the diverse assemblage of audio elements utilised.
This new exhibition at Fylkingen represents Brian Eno's first showing in Sweden since 1985, offering the Stockholm audience the rare opportunity to experience the installation work of this highly influential artist.
