In 2015, a group of six sound practitioners came together to engage in a series of sonic wilderness interventions with portable electronic instruments. We investigated notions of coexistence, communication and potential for interaction in the hybrid ecology surrounding the lake and settlement of Kilpisjärvi, located close to the three-nation corner of Finland, Sweden and Norway. By immersing ourselves into the vast and raw landscape of the Samiland, we researched and tested musical conversations between players and the site. We found our environment speaking, sounding and vibrating for itself.

We collected our impressions in a report. Till’s 2016 talk at ZKM can be found here.
