Edin, Sebastian: Vestiges 



Basic information



  • Program notes: 

    "To be haunted by a ghost is to remember something you've never lived through, for memory is the past that has never taken the form of the present." - from Ken McMullen’s Ghost Dance.
    Vestiges was written through a fascination for the spectral (this in both senses of the word) qualities of recorded sound. To work with these sounds, I feel, is to allow yourself to be haunted, to through electronic rites remember (and therefore to create) innumerable lost pasts. This relationship between technics and time, the one demanding the other, is the main foundation of a piece in which I've come to ponder my own experiential-recollecting apparatus through borrowed modalities—through another's voice.
    Vocals by Anna Katrin Øssursdottir Egilstrød.
