Abstract [en]

Devil’s Water is a piece of ecological sound art recorded by Bennett Hogg and Stefan Östersjö at Devil's Water, Northumbria, 21-22 Maj 2013. On site, Hogg and Östersjö built a sculpture of a guitar placed in a tree, strung with fishing line to trees down by the shore. The recordings feature Hogg playing violins, bowed by sinking the body into the current, and Östersjö performing on the guitar-violin-tree sculpture. Mixed and edited at The Music Studiosand at Culture Lab, University of Newcastle.  The video was created by Merrie Snell, using documentary footage from 2013 as well as additional shootings made with Hogg and Östersjö at Devil's water in August 2016. A first film version was premiered at Panora cinema, during the Transistor Festival in Malmö in May 2017. This audio and video installation, using the same material, was premiered at Cheeseburn Sculpture Gardens, and screened in the Chapel on June 29-30 2019.

The production of the soundscape recording in 2013 was carried out by Hogg and Östersjö within a two year artistic research project with The Landscape Quartet, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, headed by University of Newcastle. A DVD with the film version of the piece will be released in the Orpheus Institute series, Leuven Univertsity Press in 2020.
