Sarajevo-Wall (The Ĺngström Soundwall Reconstruction)
In 1998 artist and composer Leif.e. Boman was invited to Sarajevo to create a work dealing with the destruction of war. Using rubble from houses once occupied by Serb and Bosnian families Boman constructed a wall in front of the SFOR soldiers' headquarters in Dobrinja, a suburb of Sarajevo. After the exhibit the piece, titled 'Sarajevo-Wall', was transported to Sweden where it was a part of the Stockholm Culturecapital 1998. A form of the wall has since been exhibited in South-Korea, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Morocco and Sarajevo. The sound files used in this work were originally derived by Mr. Boman from emission spectroscopy analysis of the metals and minerals found in the wall. The analysis was then converted from the frequencies of photon emission into sound files and then subjected to further processing by the artist, Leif. e. Boman. A library of these sound files were sent to Kim Cascone who then used the processing capabilities of Max/MSP to reconstruct the files into a 'sonic wall.' While no artistic statement can adequately describe the senseless violence of war Cascone's reworking of the 'Sarajevo-Wall' sound files only hopes to convey the disorientation and confusion thrust upon victims of political systems that hold little regard for human life.
