My name is Anna Tereshkina, I'm an artist from Russia, based in St.Petersburg. Until 21 September 2021 I'm here in Sweden in the residency of the Museum of Art Skövde. I invite you to take part in my research on sound / music culture through personal experience. It comes to people with very different interests and levels of expertise. We will talk about the songs and sounds that can catch you and lead to any flashback. Maybe we will sing if you want. Or just chat about singing as a tradition, as a therapy, as a method of communication.
The word Folk is used here not as a name of a specific musical genre, but in the meaning of ownership. I see it that way: any songs / music / sounds can become folk, connected to people, their memory and background and it helps to develop the contacts between each other. Personal Folk — it’s your personal net of connections to very different things based on your acoustic experience.
