16th September – 31st December 2021
Ultima Festival. Public Space, Oslo

Voices from Your Future Past is a sound work that explores feelings of disconnection in the virtual worlds we are compelled to live and communicate in, especially during the pandemic.

The work is created by Berlin-based sound artists and composers Davide Luciani, Fabio Perletta, Jordan Juras, and Norwegian artist and vocalist Stine Janvin, DAAD Artists-in-Berlin program fellow through 2021. Curated by Daniela Arriado.

The sound installation highlights the dreamlike fallacy of technological illusions, the same illusions that keep our attention focused on the future while distancing us from the present. It was also presented as a live concert version at Blå during Ultima Festival 2021. At this event, the group presented a unique live incarnation of the project, in a mix of improvisation and blending of various sounds from physical and virtual spaces and the voice.

The installation can be experienced from any of the following Oslo locations: Blå, Atelier Nord, Sentralen, Oslo Kunstforening, Den Norske Opera & Ballett - at any one of the different places, or as a complete walk.

To enjoy the experience you need to download and install a specially designed phone app. The app is available from September - December 2021. Find out more about the app and how to download it here: www.son-ar.com
