The story of the passenger liner MS Scandinavian Star stays adrift. Tragic and complex, the details are out there in the electronic ozone, still yet to find closure. From sea port to Ethernet port, Malthe Fischer’s project navigates the themes of the narrative that unfolds to this day. A symphony of disembodied voices trail across ‘SOLAS’. Gesturing toward longing and hope, and occasionally struggling to get out of the misty collage of stumbling rhythms, it’s as if we are listening to a form of wonder being mechanized before us. As soft as ‘SOLAS’ feels, it stays sharp and bites at times, even through four-to-the-floor whispers. There’s a memory of something communal in it all, and this is what holds on.
