Straw Bales by Magdaléna Manderlová

Straw bales is a sound collage where I’m weaving together voiceover, field recordings and small bits of songs and music. I’m seeking my own sonic memories of a particular bird’s voice - the common swift/tårnsvale from decades ago, and listening to how these rooms in my mind unwind. It touches on the relationship between sound perception and memory, and draws on the ambiguity of translation - in between languages, and between literary and musical interpretation.

 

Magdaléna Manderlová holds an MFA degree from the University of Ostrava, Czech Republic (2015), and an MFA degree from Trondheim Academy of Fine Arts, NTNU (2018). 

 

Her projects take the form of site-specific works, writing, artist books, or sonic compositions/essays which are composed of field recordings, text, and music.

Along with her visual arts education, she has a background history as a singer-songwriter and was active in the Czech indie scene between 2012-18.
