Voices from you future past is a sound installation and sound work which uses the voice as compositional instrument in a work reflecting upon shadows and presences in virtual technologies and their aural construction. It has been presented as a multi-channel concert (A) and an augmented reality sound installation (B) in public space.
Modern architectures and technologies are vessels which ingurgitate the chaos of history, equally creating spaces and metaspaces where destruction, decay and ideas of ‘the new’ construct a plot to promise eternal growth, forget the past, to hide the future from its own present, approaching the virtual and the perpetual.
This work aims to acknowledge and evoke the sense of disconnection we have experienced in the virtual worlds in which we have been forced to live and communicate, particularly in the last years. Voices from Your Future Past confronts the audience with the irreality of a digital presence, despite our human desire and necessity to connect with it.
In the space, Janvin’s voice traverses and bends the boundaries between the sensible, the intelligible and the sensitive nature of music. Stark, condensed bursts of microsounds give way to choral plateaus, resisting the temptation of signification, abstracting words from meaning and voices from bodies.
Voices from your future past is conceived by sound artists and composers Davide Luciani, Fabio Perletta, spatial sound artist Jordan Juras, and they have collaborated with Norwegian artist and singer Stine Janvin. It is curated by Daniela Arriado and produced by Art Republic and Studio Mote.
The work is presented by Son.AR, a collective and curatorial-research project dedicated to aural research in relation to mixed media realities, sonic arts and public spaces.

VIDEO DOCUMENTATION – AR SPATIAL SOUND INSTALLATION
The installation was located in 3 areas across the city of Oslo, in proximity of Blå, Atelier Nord, Sentralen, Oslo Kunstforening and The Norwegian National Opera. The audience was invited to take a journey through these locations, seeking out physical-virtual sites of aural experiences.
The artwork could be experienced individually at each location or as a sound walk. The audio dramaturgies were characterised by extended vocal techniques and caracterised by a 3D audio render engine interacting with the listener position and distance in space. The video shows one of the three scenes, scene "A" characterised by musical choirs. The audio in the video is recorded in binaural. For a better listening experience It is recommended the use of a pair of headphones.
