Sonic Boat Journey - "Stones- For Pyhäjoki" by Ryoko Akama (JP) http://www.ryokoakama.com/
The piece was recorded on site @Hanhikivi Cape in the Bothnian Bay, where the nuclear power plant is planned.
Hai Art during Case Pyhäjoki invited the artist to share her experience as a Fukushima victim in the context of Pyhäjoki nuclear power plant plans.
‘Case Pyhäjoki – Artistic reflections on nuclear influence’ is a transdisciplinary artistic expedition, production workshop and presentation events in Pyhäjoki, North Ostrobothnia, Finland 1st to 11th of August 2013. The sixth nuclear power plant of Finland is planned to be built at Hanhikivi Cape in Pyhäjoki.
For the Sonic Boat Journey Ryoko Akama wrote a musical score for a 60km boat journey through the Bothnian Bay from Hailuoto to Pyhäjoki. She collected 8 stones, 2 from Fukushima, 2 from Marumori, 2 from Hailuoto and 2 from Pyhäjoki. The geographical text & time based score was transmitted via a handmade geiger counter and performed by AGF and Ryoko on the Bothnian Bay/ Finland.
We support Pro-Hanhikivi in their resistance against the project, especially after investigating all angles around the Fennovoima plans. http://www.facebook.com/prohanhikivi
