Tidal Pulse is a site-responsive sound piece and visual voyage taking place on a local boat, and linking two threatened environments along the Norwegian coastline: Harstad and Stavanger.

In Tidal Pulse - Part II, Enrique Ramírez records the underwater noise of oil pumps and the sounds of the boat- the vibrations created by the engine inside and outside the moving vehicle and in the operations room. These sounds compose, in real time, a sound piece that becomes the pulse of this fuel-powered heart, drifting along our increasingly threatened oceans. In this way, Ramírez aims to develop the research initiated in Harstad by focusing on the pressing topics of extraction and deep sea mining in Stavanger. The boat’s pulse intertwines with the voices of local activists, politicians, scientists and workers in the oil industry, reflecting on issues regarding the future of post fossil-fuel societies, the future of Norway and by extension that of Earth.

Tidal Pulse - Part II has been commissioned by the Screen City Biennial 2019.Tidal Pulse - Part I has been commissioned by AMIFF – Arctic Moving Image and Film Festival in 2018, curated by Vanina Saracino.

BIO

Enrique Ramírez was born in Santiago de Chile, Chile in 1979. He currently lives and works between Chile and France. His work combines video, photography, sound, installations and poetic narratives. Ramírez appreciates stories within stories, fictions straddling countries and epochs, the mirages between dream and reality. He often uses images and sound to construct a profusion of intrigue to occupy the equilibrium between the poetic and the political. His imaginary worlds are attached to one obsessional element—his thinking starts with the sea. The Sea as a space for memory in perpetual movement, a space for narrative projections and where the fate of Chile intersects with grand narratives of voyage, conquest and migratory flows. His liquid images speak of the sparkle of a truth in permanent flight, the backwash of history, always repeating and never the same.
