About the album

Ewa Jacobsson is a composer and visual artist. She has been sound collecting since the early 80s. She also collects visual castaway elements from actual sites, and uses materials such as marzipan, oil, steel, wire, photographs, drawings. Her work includes site-specific installations with visuals, sound and preparation of spaces, pure sound composition, col­laborations with musicians, physical sounding objects and live performance at exhibitions, museums, con­cert spaces and in other contexts, including works for public spaces or participatory works.

Advanced techniques and materials combined with the lowtech is a reflection of her interest in the transmission of importance and meaning, existentially or politically, through different media, ignoring the hierarchies commonly used.

On this recording we're presented with two works: Jarring Sounds for piano and electronics, performed by Jacobsson and pianist Kenneth Karlsson and recorded live, and Hearbaricum Fields (electronics/samples), performed by Jacobsson.
