Insomnia is stoked to be collaborating with Tromsø Soundline, an art project curated by Hanne Hammer Stien, produced by Tromsø Municipality and supported by Public Art Norway (KORO). Together we will host an opening event for Tromsø Soundline at Lhensmottet on Saturday 13th October from 14:00-16:00 as well as several guided tours during the festival week.
Tromsø Soundline works against a dualistic approach that separates tradition from modernity by mutually being inspired by indigenous methodologies and new technologies. Through an app designed by The Arctic As, six commissioned sound pieces are available. By moving around in the city, the audience activates the sound pieces through the app and collects a playlist that they can bring with them wherever they go. Artists contributing to Tromsø Soundline includes Margrethe Pettersen, Simon Daniel Tegnander Wenzel, Geir Jenssen, Charlotte Bendiks, Marit Følstad and Peder Niilas Tårnesvik.
