Mikael Ericsson

‘Soundtrack Nissan’

'Soundtrack Nissan' is a four kilometer long sound installation by Mikael Ericsson, which consists of field recordings made by the participants from the soundwalks organized by Harp Art Lab. The sounds from Nissan will be relocated, displaced, intertwined and mashed up with other samples and sites.

Stationary sound sources have been placed from the harbor, the city, and all the way up to Slottsmöllan. The artist will also use mobile units operating across the four kilometer long promenade along the Nissan river.

Mikael Ericsson is researching the use of sound maps as a means of urban analysis and participatory engagement in collaboration with PhD Researcher Conor McCafferty.

Chief of Artistic Operations at Harp Art Lab

Mikael Ericsson (SE) has a MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, School of Visual Arts. He works with various forms of artistic expressions such as drawing, animation, sculpture, sound, film and television. In the recent years Ericsson has created a series of large-scale audio and video installations using hand drawing animation, florescent light and moving projectors to stage his cinematic installations. Ericsson is Chief of Artistic Operations at Harp Art Lab which he founded with Julie Ericsson in 2010. In 2012 he created, Millophonia, a permanent, site specific sound installation at Harp Art Lab, Harplinge windmill.

Ericsson’s allusion of the world and the anxiety of human helplessness, coincide with some of the great environmental issues that concern humankind today. It inscribes itself in a tradition of artistic philosophy, concerned with the fate of man and for whom the prelude to the end of the world is a moment of exploration and reflection
