field re-recording project

.#2: Tartu-Mooste (Estonia)

with the support of both MoKS and the project DE.MO./Movin'Up by the Italian Ministry of Heritage and Cultural Activities (MiBAC) and GAI


The project is an attempt to trigger thoughts about social mobility.

It try to suggest a movement from the urban to the rural by means of sound.

A short composition with sounds recorded from a city is played back in a natural environment and recorded. the recording is than played back in a different landscape and re-recorded. This process is made several times in different places until when the sounds of the city are filtered out. The transformation process is an attempt to suggest a movement from the urban to the rural.

In this second project the city is Tartu (EE) and the natural environment is Mooste, a small town in a rural area of southern Estonia, where my residency took palace.
