Lontano is an installation / event taking place in an anechoic chamber. It addresses the anechoic chamber as a site of research, and draws attention to our hearing capabilities and in particular the spatial dimensions of hearing and listening, the phenomenology of listening, the rich soundscapes that surrounds us, and how we are situated and immersed in the world through sound.
An audience of only four persons at a time are invited to enter the space along with the artist. They get to experience the space itself, and are then seated in the middle. A series of surround (Ambisonic) field recordings are presented. The situation is open-ended. The group might choose to listen in silence, or engage in discussions concerning how the room is experienced, the sensations, memories and thoughts triggered by the field recordings, or any other topic relevant to the situation.

His projects investigate sound, place and space, using spatial sound and multichannel audio as an invisible and temporal sculptural medium in works engaging with the site. Lossius coordinates research and development at BEK – Bergen Center for Electronic Arts.
