Sounding Out Spaces is a site-responsive sonic art project that explores ecosystemic relationships between people, sounds, and spaces. The project, which was started in 2014, involves musical and technical approaches for artistically responding to and participating in a given site. These sites may include buildings and spaces that have not been designated as concert venues, as well as outdoor urban and rural settings, and they range from retired industrial structures, visually stimulating landscapes, architecture with unique acoustic properties, natural environments, or places of cultural or historical significance. Guerrilla improvisations have taken place at the Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, and the Salton Sea, California.
Sounding Out Spaces: SAANA took place as part of the Ars Bioarctica Residency at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station of the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Helsinki, Finland, 6/7/17 - 20/7/17.
