Ragnar Kjartansson's "S.S. Hangover," is a performative kinetic sound-sculpture consisting of a sailing ship adapted by the artist and a composition for six brass instruments.
A Wagnerian tableau of sorts, Kjartansson’s S.S. Hangover will sail between two landings in the canal in the Arsenale. The boat will be manned by a brass sextet continuously playing a piece by composer Kjartan Sveinsson that he created specifically for this kinetic sculpture. The hemicyclic sailing of the sound of horns, trombone and tuba results in a stereoscopic effect. The boat will drop off the musicians one at a time, with each left to play alone on the pier as the boat sails away with the rest of the musicans still playing onboard, only to be picked up a round or two later and replaced by another musician in a continuous loop.
