just released for november 2023’s bandcamp friday, these site specific works have now been collected in an online release. if you’re on or near the island of vartiosaari, please consider using the included map to listen to the pieces in their original locations!

::: liner notes :::

echo surveys : vartiosaari is a series of site-specific soundworks for locations around vartiosaari island in helsinki, finland, produced for the exhibition at the ‘arts in the environment’ nordic symposium, which ran on the island from september 2 – october 8, 2017. each work is constructed from field recordings and resonated objects (found, played, and recorded in-situ) from each individual location, and was originally intended to be heard there. visitors could bring their own smartphones and headphones and listen to the works by scanning a QR code at each site.

the last piece (navetta/barn) is a recording of the live performance that took place, under the same conditions as the other pieces, at the opening event on september 2, 2017.

included with the download is a copy of the official exhibition map, with letters A through F added to identify the specific locations of the six pieces. you will also find a set of photographs of the 6 sites. you can find more information on the exhibition here: www.nordicenviroart.org
