Portals / Anchors is a sound and light installation based on a series of experiments. I am looking at conflations of storage and memory, particularly in relation to sensory experiences that are dominated by the auditory.


Chelsea Leventhal (*Berkshire County, USA) is a sound artist and composer of electroacoustic music based in Berlin, Germany. Her pieces engage the reanimation and articulation of space, perception of auditory archetypes, and creation of sonic allegories, taking the form of site-specific sound installations in public space and multichannel sound works featuring sculptural components, visual elements, or video. The domestic soundscape, psychogeographical exploration of urban spaces, and the human-nature relationship are recurring themes in her work. She has received commissions from organizations such as Pépinières Européennes pour Jeunes Artistes in Paris, id11 in Delft, Kultur Mitte and the Bezirksamt Neukölln in Berlin, I-Park Foundation in the USA, and the Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik, and participated in numerous residencies, including at Hellerau European Centre for the Arts and ZKM in Karlsruhe. Her works have been presented at Maerzmusik in Berlin, Dystopia Festival in Istanbul, the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, the Akademie der Künste in Berlin, Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten in Marl, and other diverse locations.
