Introduction

Currently exhibited are works by sound artist Thembi Soddell. Her work focuses strongly on composition. Using environmental recordings, surface textures, abstracted music samples, processed and synthesised sounds, she carefully sculpts and transforms them into dynamic and constantly evolving sonic expressions. Particular attention is given to subtleties, textures, build-ups (both volume and intensity), harsh cuts, and dynamics. Sounds on the threshold of perception contrasted with loud bursts of noise characterise her work, her compositions resulting in the abstract suggestion of narrative.
