7 minutes, 48 seconds, 16mm film, HD video, stereo sound

Amy Hanley and Laglína Skógarhneta

JULY 15, 2020 SPEAK PERCUSSION SD SERIES

Resonant Incantations is a collaborative work produced by Amy Hanley and Laglína Skógarhneta. In 2020, Hanley and Skógarhneta were commissioned by Speak Percussion to develop a collaborative work as part of their SD Series. The resulting work brings together two distinct recursive practices into a conversation about deep time, relations of repetition, hauntologies, generation, the collapse of site, space, intensification, excess and decay. 


Parts of Amy Hanley's composition were produced during their 2020 residency at Bogong Centre for Sound Culture, on Dhudhuroa and Jaitmatang Country. Laglína Skógarhneta's 16mm film work was first recorded with The Weight of Mountains film residency on lands of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in in 2018.

The Hanley and Skógarhneta collaboration is explored further in Contemporary Expanded Cinema: New networks between sound, 16mm film, and the world as artistic material by Laglína Skógarhneta.
