Microworlds Residency
posted by Till Bovermann on 6 September 2019

The surrounding of Kilpisjärvi is host to many “microworlds” — relatively small places like rocks, small ponds, or streams that gather a relatively big variety of plants, mushrooms and animals around themselves.

As a sound artist, I am interested in the biophony and soundscape (“how does it sound?”) of such microworlds.

During my Ars-Bioarctica residency at the Kilpisjärvi Biology Station, I search for such microworlds, to listen to them, and record what they might hear. I will also perform together with them with my electronic live-coding system.

Please see an extensive archive of this residency over at friendly.organisms.
