about

Ramberget towers over central Hisingen. Like a remnant of something ancient, something that was here before we even started measuring time. As a reminder of everything that came before us, and of all that will continue once we’re gone. Through ages that will soon have forgotten our mere existence, it will remain, silent, unyielding. But there is a promise in that. Something always remains, something that watches over us, something that never forgets.
Keillers Park at Ramberget was inaugurated on October 3rd 1908. In 1912 and 1915, the park was enlarged in a northern and westerly direction. Today it comprises approximately 31 hectares.
Life is short. Humans exist for a moment, only to fall back into darkness once more. But something remains. Some call it the soul. The law of entropy states that energy can never disappear, it can only change from one form to another. And energies have to go somewhere. Keillers Park is a place where energies gather.
On August 22nd 2016 I went up on Ramberget to do some field recordings for this piece. I made recordings on a number of locations, in the park and in connection to the park. When I later listened through the material I discovered recurring noises in some of the takes. High frequency sounds which I did not know the origin of, and could not find any logical explanation for. I had not heard these sounds during the actual sessions, something had disrupted the recordings. Perhaps it was merely radio waves, perhaps the recording equipment just malfunctioned? Perhaps someone is trying to tell us something. I let them become part of the piece.
I don’t believe in the soul and I don’t believe in the afterlife. But I do not believe that death is the end of everything. Death is perhaps just a new beginning. Of what I don’t know.
