For Vestlandsutstillingen 2019, Huizing is developing 6 site specific sound pieces for exhibitions in Ålesund, Haugesund, Øystese, Stavanger, Førde and Bergen.
Between 11-14 September 2018, she went on a site visit to Stavanger to explore and record material for a new sound piece, the fourth in this series of six. Torn Tracks #17 - Stavanger (11-14 Sep 2018) premiered on the opening of the Vestlands exhibition at Kunsthall Stavanger, on the 13th of June and is now available on the Torn Tracks website.
"The work for Stavanger is based on and around a place that I found on my exploratory walks through the city and its surroundings. It is an in between place, which touches both the outer rims of the growing city and its rural surroundings; includes both new and old constructions, and elements that move freely between them. Swallows chirp and fly over pastures in search of insects; walls made of stone, moss, lichen and air divide the fields and paths of downtrodden grass connect them; the recorder is standing on one of the stone walls with a forest of high trees behind it; someone cuts grass to the left, and over the top of the hill you can just see the tops of the roofs of a neighborhood in progress."
In addition to the 6 new sound pieces, Huizing is developing the website as well. Sketch maps is a new way of searching the collection, where one track can have several side tracks or 'stops' you can listen to. More info on this view can be found on its own page.
The site is being developed further to be more responsive to different browsers and screen sizes. Some small errors might still occure, and those are being worked on. It currently works best in the Chrome webbrowser.
