Seattle and Torshavn, Faroe Islands
Application deadline extended to March 15th!
Halfway between Norway and Iceland lies the tiny archipelago of the Faroe Islands, where inhabitants speak an ancient dialect of Norse and have carved out a unique musical tradition based on the tones and practices of singing. This program examines the relationship between sound, language, and landscape, looking at language as one of many types of sonic encounters amongst all types of objects. When the waves crash upon the shore, when Faroe Islanders talk to each other, when the wind whistles across the rocks, and when birds mark their territories, the islands start to sing.
