MELT is a composition of audio recordings of ice melting in different stages. The sounds transform from the severe tone of the grinding of ice caps, to drips, to flowing water.
MELT traces how water moves through different aggregate phases, from solid to liquid, changing the combination of molecules irrevocably. It is both a representation for constant flow and change, and for how human actions affect the world surrounding us.
All sounds were recorded in Greenland by Kirkegaard in 2013 and 2015.
Jacob Kirkegaard (DK) is artist and composer. He uses recordings of highly specific environments like the human inner ear, Chernobyl or geysers. His works present listening as a means of experiencing the world. fonik.dk
