Installation. 30-minute sound and video composition from field recordings of singing sands and booming dunes recorded in the Oman deserts. Premiered at at Aichi Triennale, Nagoya, Japan, 2010.

Sabulation is created from video and sound recordings of the ‘Singing Sands’ in the deserts of Oman, one of the few places in the world where the shifting sand dunes emit deep tones. The sounds were captured using vibration sensors buried inside the dunes.

Jacob Kirkegaard is an artist and composer who works in carefully selected environments to generate recordings that are used in compositions, or combined with video imagery in visual, spatial installations.

His works reveal unheard sonic phenomena and present listening as a means of experiencing the world. Kirkegaard has recorded sonic environments as different as subterranean geyser vibrations, empty rooms in Chernobyl, Arctic calving glaciers and tones generated by the human inner ear itself.

Based in Copenhagen Kirkegaard has presented his works at galleries, museums and concert spaces throughout the world, including MoMA in New York, LOUISIANA in Denmark, KW in Berlin, The Menil Collection & at the Rothko Chapel in Houston, Aichi Triennale in Nagoya, the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan - and most recently with a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denmark. Jacob Kirkegaard has gallery representation in Scandinavia and Europe by the Danish Galleri Tom Christoffersen and in USA and Asia by New York based Opalnest. His sound works are released on the TOUCH, Important Records, VON Archives & Posh Isolation labels. His work is represented in the permanent collection of LOUISIANA - Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.
