DODDA MAGGÝ exhibits at SPECTRA ABERDEEN, Scotland

Dodda Maggý will exhibit her work at this year’s SPECTRA, Aberdeen’s Festival of Light in Scotland, 13-16 February 2020.

Alda (2018) is a video and music installation created by artist and composer Dodda Maggý. The work explores shared mythologies and superstitions of the sea in the seafarer communities Hull, Grimsby and Iceland.
The working process involved interviewing historians and going through various archives in Hull, Grimsby and Reykjavik. Alda is a sensorial and psychological translation of that research, employing the narrative quality of music with suggestive moving imagery.
The video is made from archival recordings of the sea, the footage sampled, animated and rearranged into new abstract shapes. The composition was recorded at the University of Hull, performed by Anna Kent (Viola), Brice Catherin (Cello), Sandy Clark (French Horn), Simon Desbruslais (Trumpet) with Tallulah Vigars and Aled Edwards on the ambisonic sound field mics and desk, the final mix by Dodda Maggý.
Alda was made during the project ‘NATUR North Atlantic Tales’ with Einkofi Productions in partnership with Curated Place with support from Creative Europe. The work was premiered at  ‘Urban Legends: Northern Lights’ festival, presented in ambisonic sound, projected on ‘Three ships’ the mural by Alan Boyson on the BHS Building at King Edward Square in Hull.
