    Installation recording of work at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden, in the exhibition More than Sound, 05 September - 02 December 2012. The show focuses on how music is used and created in contemporary art.

    The work is installed in the museum elevator, drawing attention to a very specific non place. It uses all the sounds of the elevator itself, doors, motor and ambience, combined with recordings I have made all over the globe of other elevators, bells, buzzers, gates, voice announcements for different floors, in a variety of languages from English, German, Spanish, French, Japanese and Chinese.

    Hiss concrète offers a connection between ideas of Elevator Music, that kind of vapid, generic easy listening music that is frequently piped through shopping centres and airports, and Musique Concrète, an experimental technique of music composition that assembles work by using natural sounds found around us.
