To the Lighthouse
To the Lighthouse is a live sound intervention by Hai Art / SOCCOS Artist in Residence Lukatoyboy, especially prepared for the lighthouse in Marjaniemi and staged for the International Lighthouse Heritage Weekend.
Although the lighthouse is a famous landmark in Hailuoto, there is another element which might not have the same visual, historical, and architectural value, but has a great influence on the Marjaniemi atmosphere.
Some visitors, who are desperately trying to capture a frame with the lighthouse without it's ugly brother (or sister), are very much aware of it.
The others, who have already spent a lot of years in Marjaniemi, maybe don't even notice it. Listen.
Yes - the radar. Its particular sound governs Marjaniemi nowadays (when the wind turbines are silent) and it's an audible counterpart to the lighthouse.
On Saturday the lighthouse will be filled with sound as well, raising the awareness of a unique soundscape which might be easy to miss for those who are not living in of the Marjaniemi huts.
This way, a duo of the lighthouse and the radar, will have its premiere.
Saturday, 15.8. 14:30
