Jana Winderen Live


Soundwalk Collective





Tuesday, October 17, 2023


Performance with conversation

As part of Soundwalk Collective’s “Transmissions” series, Norwegian sound artist Jana Winderen performs a 16-channel sound composition using field recordings of fish, crustacea and mammals, part of her longtime project revealing underwater audio topographies and our interaction with them. After the performance, Winderen will be joined by longtime collaborator Philip Marshall for a conversation about her artistic practice and how it engages with urgent ecological issues.

The performance takes place in the inner room of the Reethaus, an intimate space where audience and artist are in close communion. Light food and drinks will be served over the course of the evening.



Soundwalk Collective invites key influences and frequent collaborators featured across their extended body of work to participate in a series that samples from the past 60 years of sonic arts. Reflecting a personal view on collaboration as an essential aspect of the creative process, the series presents a broad summary of the sonic landscapes that they have developed over the past two decades. Seminal masterworks and newer pieces blend into a cohesive yet varied ensemble that spans musique concrète, performance art, contemporary and mystical music. All of these genres have in common a meditative dimension, a transitional nature that has been at the core of Soundwalk Collective’s work.

Jana Winderen

Jana Winderen is a Norweigan artist with a background in mathematics, chemistry and fish ecology. Her practice pays particular attention to audio environments and to creatures that are hard for humans to access, both physically and aurally – deep under water, inside ice or in frequency ranges inaudible to the human ear. Her activities include site-specific and spatial audio installations and concerts, which have been exhibited and performed internationally in major institutions and public spaces. Recent work includes “The Art of Listening: Underwater” at Lenfest Center for the Arts, Colombia University, New York, “The Art of Listening: Underwater” for Audemar Piguet at Art Basel, Miami and “Ultrafield for MoMA, New York. In 2011 she won the Golden Nica at Ars Electronica for Digital Musics & Sound Art. She releases her audio-visual work on Touch (UK).



Philip Marshall is a respected graphic designer, producer and curator who has collaborated artistically with Jana Winderen since 2008, exploring environmental issues through music. Based in Berlin, Marshall is a catalyst in experimental music publishing, promotion and broadcasting. He runs a cassette-only label, The Tapeworm, founded in 2009, with releases from artists such as Stephen O’Malley, Terre Thaemlitz, Cristian Vogel, Derek Jarman, Nam June Paik and Philip Corner. In his design work for record labels, musicians, cultural events and fashion brands, Marshall has collaborated with Central Saint Martins, Comme des Garçons, and Dover Street Market, among others.
