Mains Hum
The work was composed and performed in Sauherad Church in Telemark, 17.07.2017. The sound of the electricity (the mains hum) in the church was recorded (a microphone was placed in the church´s fuse box). The recording was then analyzed and the dominant frequencies were transcribed to the nearest semitone. The corresponding keys to these tones were then held down on the church´s pipe organ and gradually all the stops were pulled out. Mains Hum consists of a mix of the sound of the church's power line hum and the organ composition based on this hum.
