There’s an extensive exhibition of one of my favourite painters, Pierre Bonnard, on at Glyptoteket – with some intriguing sound vignettes by @lydrummet and @sunheeengelstoft to accompany some of them.

A little difficult to hear with the so many summer visitors, but beautiful nonetheless, and opening up details of the paintings in unexpected ways. They got me thinking back to a lecture that David Toop gave in Copenhagen a number of years ago on the topic of sound in paintings.

Over the past year I’ve been working on a sound-theatre/podcast piece based on a text by Lene Henningsen with Oskar Kokoschka and Alma Mahler as the leading characters. After having made a studio recording of all of the dialogue, we realised how much of an impact having the actors standing stationary and confined to a small space had on the character of the dialogue. (There are some similar observations in this Aeon article on Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds.) The next step was to re-record some of the scenes out in the world, and the wonderful Hirschsprung Collection kindly allowed us to use some of their spaces.

Jens Essendrop was also along to take some photographs: Here are Mette Frank Sørensen and Ulver Skuli Abildgaard, with myself recording and Lene Henningsen looking on.

Modular Diary

A little over a year ago I set about recreating Rob Hordijk’s modular system in @Audulus. You can follow that journey in podcast form here: huffduffer.com/rudigermeyer/tags/modular-diary, or here: rudigermeyer.com/notes/2019-03-01-12-00-49

And the man
bent
over the water
surprised
by the sun
discovers
a shadow

Wafting in pieces and
gently
floating away
