Unpacking an archive, evoking memory and loss, re-animating musical fragments; sound and installation artist Trond Lossius’ Å holde øyeblikket is a moving exploration of the archive and music of the late composer and educator Morten Eide Pedersen. Based on Pedersen’s compositions, and extracts, fragments and material further processed by Trond, the installation is a series of episodes each representing a state, a situation, a material or a picture, as a series of tones. Common to each sonic moment is that it is stretched and held tight before it slips away. As a close friend of Morten Eide Pedersen, Lossius has not only evoked his musical legacy, but his impact as a human being. Eide Pedersen encouraged those around him to hold on to the moment, not only in music but also as a presence in the world and in association with others. Å holde øyeblikket was first commissioned and presented by Borealis in 2017 as part of the minifestivalen GJENLYD.
