The sound installation Body Resonance originates from Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen’s extensive Body Interfaces performance work. The research deals with the threshold condition of the body in interaction with specific places and environments, creating a critical interaction and engagement. Body Resonance takes very literate the direct confrontation between the structural elements of the space and the body, where the soundscape is a recording of the artists body slamming into the walls and floors of an echoing empty space, created in the Hof Art Studio at the Skálar Sound Art Residency in Seyðisfjörður (IS), November 2015. The sounds of both the flesh of the body hitting the surfaces, its echoes, as well as the silent passages in-between, create a composition based on movement, intensity, and anticipation. In the installation, the recorded sound is installed, played and relocated in the empty frontal space of Liebig12, with only a transcript of the actions as a guide for the listener.

The space of Liebig12 will only be inhabited by the play-back of the sounds recorded, giving the visitors the opportunity to create their own connections, with a given choice to read the transcribed notated actions together with the sounds or simply just listen to the sounds themselves.

A crucial part of Madsen’s work is to rework and recreate performative processes. The artist will therefore do a durational processual notation responding to her own body sounds of the installation for 2 hours every day in the back space of Liebig12. The front space and the back space will be visually separated, to give the installation its own space and the artist working in response to the sounds an additionally own concentrated space. Total sonic separation is, however, not possible, nor intended. During this action the sound of the notation will fusion together with the body sounds of the installation, and thus create a new site-specific soundscape and mode of expression.
The transcribed actions are available on site as a printed artist booklet.
