In this event at Cascade Bend Chamber, Stine Janvin and Cara Tolmie respond to the environment of the exhibition through their ongoing explorations with explorative ‘hand to mouth’ vocality and ASMR inspired intimacy. This responsive ‘functional’ music further expands their previous vocal explorations into the repeated, fragmented and extreme voice set within the uncanny setting of fabrics, unreliable echos and curious small sounds found at Mint.
Stine Janvin is a vocalist, performer, and sound artist based in Stavanger, Norway. Janvin works with the extensive flexibility of her voice, and the ways in which it can be used to channel physicality of sound. Often drawing from electronic music, folk music, and contemporary media, she creates audio visual works for variable spaces from theaters, to clubs and galleries, and more recently websites and digital platforms. Recent presentations include Performa Telethon, New York; Munch Live and CADS, Munchmuseet, Oslo; Deutschlandradio Kultur, Daadgalerie, and CTM Festival, Berlin; Kunsthall Stavanger, Stavanger; Rokolective, Bucharest; Wiener Festwochen, Vienna; ISSUE Project Room, New York; and INA GRM, Paris.
