In September 2019, Till set out for a two-week expedition to Kilpisjärvi in the three-nation border between Finland, Norway and Sweden. Here he documented his journey.
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 searched for such microworlds to listen to them and record what they might hear. I also performed together with them with my electronic live-coding system.
Below is a chronology of the events as they took place and were recorded, collected and curated by me.
