Christine Webster: Iceberg the Drift
The CD and digital release Iceberg the Drift is Christine Webster‘s poetic and sonic tribute to the Larsen C Ice shelf rift in Antartica, which during the summer of 2017 caused the complete breaking of the oversized A-68 iceberg, drifting now in the open sea for years, maybe even decades.
This is the second sound work by Webster composed directly inspired from a natural catastrophy, like her Fukushima Days project in 2012.
With Iceberg the Drift she investigates the structural ice shelf perception and the vibrant life hidden inside it from an organic and abstract perspective, working only with modular synthesis.
