Madde Edlund

Madde Edlund’s ‘Sonic ID Shower’,  is an immersive sound sculpture that explores the intimacies of language. The ‘shower’ orientates the listener at different points in a spectrum of control and submission, according to scripts Madde collated from words and sounds gathered at participatory workshops she designed. Four soundscapes created by the artist envelop the listener in ambient, human, animal and technical sounds that weave into a stream intended to place them as calculated subjects. The sculpture, like the workshops themselves, invites consideration on how sounds and words position you, on your sense of agency as a receiver of sounds, and asks you to pause and let the words hold you gently in these different poses.
