ENCHANTING SOUNDS FROM NATURE – KELOSOUND
The sound of the northern lights - rare sounds of wild animals and the atmosphere of magical Lapland with accompanying mythological stories from the north.
KELOSOUND is a new soundart- and design-product that plays the sounds from the Finnish north. It is a huggable and sounding wood, designed and created by sound artist Kirsi Ihalainen.
Kelowood is the Finnish term for dead and naturally dried wood.
Kirsi has developed KELOSOUND, a tactile and sounding piece of wood that can be controlled with a mobile phone. Man should find the connection to nature again in order to relax and to recognize how important nature, the forests and their animals are. The artist herself has recorded the unique sound landscapes on her sound adventures through Finland, trotting through snow and hail, surrounded by roaring bears and other wild animals.
In the forum the participants inside experience, how they can catch the noises of birds and wild animals. The equipment for the recording of natural sounds will also be presented and tried out.
Finnish sound artist Kirsi Ihalainen creates sound installations, music and sounds for games and films.
Kirsi has successfully exhibited her sound installation "Finnish Forest Frequencies" in Finland, the USA, Iceland and Japan.
