SoundFjord : Dedicated Sonic Art Gallery and Research Unit
SoundFjord is a gallery, research unit and venue dedicated to the Sonic Arts. SoundFjord is also a concept - its staff acting as itinerant curators, often working with individuals and organisations to bring sound out of the gallery and into like-minded hubs, performance spaces, and more unconventional, site-specific locations.
This creative venture – a partnership between a fine artist, Helen Frosi and sound designer, Andrew Riley – is a centre for experimentation and collaboration, with sound being central to all works performed, researched or exhibited: as inspiration, conduit for artistic expression, or simply, the resulting work.
The gallery was founded to incite critical debate around the use of sound in creative practice, to activate a practice of critical listening within the Arts and beyond, and to redress the current lack of exhibiting space exclusively for works of sound art whilst focusing on the exhibition and documentation of art works, the development of artists within their creative and research practices.
Ultimately, SoundFjord has been inaugurated to promote sound art, critical listening and its related interests in an inclusive manner to a wider audience through an eclectic array of exhibitions, live events and activities, educational workshops, talks, screenings and residencies.
SoundFjord welcomes anyone interested in sonic practice and invites interested parties to join its social network, to ask questions, and to get involved!
