Espen Sommer Eide – artist/composer
Reality-based Audio Workshop is a group comprising of accomplished artists from Norway and internationally attempting to re-think the relationship between sound and reality in our time. The artists all use field recording as the core of their artistic activities, and approach a site armed with advanced recording technology from hydrophones to surround sound microphones. The recordings are then improvised and mixed collaboratively into a sound work. Participating artists are Signe Lidén, Alexander Rishaug, Bodil Furu, Rune Søchting, Yngvild Færøy, Jiska Huizing, Siri Austeen, Joakim Blattmann, Espen Sommer Eide and Ernst Karel.
