Resonance is a new work by Norwegian artist and scenographer Gunhild Mathea Olaussen, which will be on display as an installation and as an extended instrument played by a series of performers during the Ultima Festival opening weekend. Resonance is a spacious sensor-driven instrument that produces sound, which viewers activate with their own bodies as they move around the spaces within the structure. The installation takes the form of a circular landscape of resonating copper loudspeaker membranes around a core of sensor-activated columns of strings – a highly tactile enclosure of resonance, air and sound waves. In the gaps between these tactile objects, we and our bodies participate in a physical and active sonic experience. 

The installation is open during the museum’s opening times Saturday and Sunday. One or several performers will make a performance as a form of dialogue with the active room. Visitors are free to come and go as they please.
