The Distant Sound – A sound concert with Susan Philipsz

During the summer a sound will be heard at Tjolöholm every whole hour between the hours of 10 am-18 pm. The artist Susan Philpsz has created “The Distant Sound” with inspiration from the Danish, Swedish and Norwegian coastal geography and cultural history. Grimeton Radio Station outside Varberg will send the sound out to nine different places, from Bornholm in the south to Moss in the north, also including Tjolöholm. The sound contains tones, recorded using horn instruments and taken from older radio vignettes. With this Philipsz encourages us to reflect over our local cultural landscape in a new context.
The piece is part of “In Site” – an EU-based cooperation initiative between nine cultural institutions and regions in the area around Öresund, Kattegatt and Skagerrak, including Hallands Art museum and Region Halland.
