Tonight at Goethe Institut in Back Bay, Non-Event brings us Jacob Kierkegaard, artist and composer known for capturing the sonic phenomena of carefully selected environments from subterranean geyser vibrations to the inner ear. Kierkegaard presents S V Æ V N I N G E R, as well as Faust Suite (Else Marie Pade 1962). This work is a sonically captivating collaboration between he and Danish composer Else Marie Pade. Else Marie Pade is the first Danish composer of electronic and musique concrete and the two came together as artists who listen to and communicate sounds that would otherwise be indiscernible. Svaevninger is the Danish word for Weaves, yet tracks on the collaborative work are named after cloud formations and they communicate as such. Drawn out, sustained bells, and the sound of life above and below, and soft grass perhaps gazing up at the gleaning smooth Cirrocumulus, thinly stretching out against the sky behind. It is a beautiful work, spanning the unique musical language of artist’s generations apart, yet that thrives from the same connective tissue of sound as human perception.
