The experiment Subjective Frequency Transducer is a collaboration between Stine Janvin Motland, artist Marianne Vierø and composer and software developer Fredrik Olofsson.
Unlike Janvin Motland last project In Labour, where an absent practitioner uses their surroundings as a partner, the attention is now focused inward, toward anatomy and body frequency registers. The Subjective Frequency Transducer is both a measuring instrument and musical instrument, that detects and regenerates body frequencies.
The audience is invited to get their body resonance measured and translated into sound. The sound of one person's arm will sound along with another person's back, and the individual differences affect the development of the musical composition that fills the room.
Stine Janvin Motland is a performer and composer based in Stavanger, Oslo and Berlin. Through new music, physical theatre and contemporary dance, she uses extended vocal techniques to explore and push the frontiers of the natural acoustic of the voice. Her work contains elements of conceptual and spontaneous composition, improvisation, performance and sound poetry.
Ongoing projects are the live radio play In Labour, Native Instrument with Felicity Mangan and Brigitte & Paula band with Maria Ramvi and Camilla Vislie. In addition to her own work, she sings redrafted contemporary music, and contribute as a composer, singer, dancer and actor in several interdisciplinary projects. She is currently a performer in the baby opera Korall Koral (Dieserud / Lindgren & Maja Ratkje). In 2014 Motland released two solo albums: Okay, wow (+3 dB) and In Labour (Pica Disk).
Fredrik Olofsson studied composition at Det Kungliga Musikkonservatorium in Stockholm. Since graduating 15 years ago, he has worked with software and electronics development for art installations, and as a performer of live video and electronic music. In addition to various cooperations, commissions, residencies, workshops and live performances, he contributes to the project rhyme.no in Oslo and teaches computational artat the Universität der Künste in Berlin
