E pur si muove, 2007

Still E pur si muove, 2007

I first found the turntable and the triple album in which Jan Johansson plays his selection of music from the last four centuries. Then I found the place: Nuolja Mountain in Abisko, a national park far above the Arctic polar circle. I took the metro to T-Centralen station, the train to Arlanda, a plane to Kiruna, a bus to Abisko, and the chair lift to Nuolja Mountain. Then I walked to the rocky area. I connected the turntable to a transformer, and the transformer to a car battery. I put the first record in its place and placed the camera on top of a piece of glass facing down right on the centre of the record. I pressed play and rec and waited, changing the tapes and turning the records as required. I looked at the midnight sun floating over a mountain range behind the lake while I listened to music that was totally out of place, continuously interrupted by a very rhythmic wind.
