One of my favorite discoveries of the past couple of years, a project that brings people together to connect vocally to the sounds in the small and remote island of Hailuoto in northern Finland.
“The Hailuoto Sound Choir recreates the sounds of the island with vocal tools and learns a program of pieces composed or curated by sound artist Antye Greie (AGF) in partnership with national acclaimed singer Iiris Poukkanen. The pieces are specifically curated and written for this choir. Performances will be video recorded and archived in this blog. The program is open to everybody. No singing skills required.”
