::: 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. 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!
