site-specific sound installation
Island of Harakka, Helsinki 23.8.-26.8.2011

A site specific audio feedback piece, which was located in a old tunnel on the Island of Harakka. I placed a microphone and a speaker on each of the ends of tunnel that created an audio feedback. Still I wanted somehow to edit the sound so that I won’t be just the normal feedback howling, so I made a Max/MSP patch, which made different audio operations and panning to the feedback sound, also taking the acoustics of the tunnel into account. The goal was to induce a different kind of atmosphere into the tunnel with aural means, perhaps bringing a sense of otherworldiness.
