Listening Through the Dead Zones [excerpt]

by Jana Winderen



HME Helsinki Commission 2020

Excerpt of the IHME Helsinki 2020 Commission “Listening Through the Dead Zones”, a fourteen channel sound installation made in collaboration with Tony Myatt.

It took place in August 2021 at the rowing stadium in Töölö, Helsinki overlooking the Baltic Sea.

The work has since been shown as part of the exhibition Hydra in St. Petersburg, and the exhibition Geomancers at the Green Roof overlooking the sea at Marina Barrage in Singapore.

The composition is made from recordings made by Jana over the last 16 years in underwater sound environments, from the North Pole to the tropic waters of Thailand.

[Dead Zones are hypoxic or low in oxygen areas in the world’s oceans and lakes. In the Baltic Sea, where this installation was made, the limit for what you call a dead zone is when the water contains less than 2mg oxygen per litre of water.]
