The Gates of Dawn

The Gates of Dawn, formerly also called the Medinikai Gate, or in Polish "Ostra Brama", the ”Sharp Gate”. This is the only surviving one of the original gates in the city wall that was built in the early 16th century. The lower section was built between 1503 and 1522, the top part is the first half of the following century. The five round holes on the south wall were made for cannons to fire from, and were last used in the Napoleonic Wars. At the top is a relief of a mounted knight – called Vytis, the state emblem of Lithuania – supported by two winged lions. A recording is made just in front of the gate with a lot of traffic.

The weather was gray and gloomy, but I went out on the town to make a first recording. It was very busy and a festive atmosphere prevailed because there was a large market on Gediminas street and a running competition further down towards the cathedral.

Well, it took some time to copy the files to the site. But better late than never!

Yesterday evening we had dinner with a lot of food and drink and we all came to bed very late, so today we are tired. Together with our friends from the Czech Republic we also went out late in the night and made a soundwalk into the forest and the marshland of Rynningeviken to listen and record the birds. A lot of fun, but probably not the best preparation for a soundwalk in the city center the day after!

So, today Seth-Reino and I went to Södra kyrkogården and found the tomb of the composer Valborg Aulin. We made a recording at her tomb and then we continued are walk to the small fountain at Näbbtorget, it is strange but we have never observed this fountain before! Then we crossed the street and came to the castle and made a recording with some workers who were digging in light sand.

"Beffen" in Bergen

ÖrebroPosted by Anders Flodin Fri, May 10, 2013 11:51:18

The sound of the ferry Beffen, Bergen Elektriske Færgeselskap, inspired the British composer Pete Stollery to create sounds in the Three Cities Project. The ferry cross the harbour from Bradbenken/Bryggen to Munkebryggen/Nykirken in Bergen, Norway, and is possessed wíth an 22,5 hk engine. It have served for more than 100 years across Vågen. Today it serves tourists 50 times every day all year round.

Soundwalk I

ÖrebroPosted by Anders Flodin Sat, April 20, 2013 18:16:10
The first day of spring and good conditions for the first sound walk with Origo Project. This is the time of the year when the beginning of primordial sounds arises from nature and of people as well! New noises rise up around me when I start at Naturens hus and follow the river Svartån and continue my walk with a few stops before I end up at Örebro centralstation. The temptation to have a beer after my walk is immediate but I have to wait...

The director of the Bio Roxy cinema Mr. Kjell Andersson showed us the cinema today. Bio Roxy, Salon 2, is downstairs in the large auditorium. It holds 30 seats and is perfect for a small group. Fully equipped with projector (full HD, 1080p), media player, Bluray, Internet connection (100 Mbps), etc. We introduced Mr. Andersson to the project and he was very positive to be the host for next years concert.

Silent film

ÖrebroPosted by Anders Flodin Tue, March 26, 2013 13:54:29
Today me and Seth-Reino visited Örebro Stadsarkiv to look at silent films from Örebro (1928). No recorded sounds, no spoken dialogues and not a single bit of advanced technology in sight. The films can be useful for the concert in June.
