In my work The Voyager (2016) is ecological theme in focus, with field recordings from various locations from Gotland island and Sweden. Recordings of different harbor environments, water and nature sounds are combined with electronic sounds: drone, glitch and electronic Tuva throat singing.
In the spring of 2016, I was asked to create a musical event around Tarkovsky’s films. This was because during Bergman Week there was a photo exhibition by a Russian photographer Victoria Ivleva who has photographed the people behind Andrei Tarkovsky’s last film The Sacrifice.
This project had a musical/poetic connection to Tarkovsky and I also had an ecological theme as a common thread – I used field recordings, partly from places where Tarkovsky filmed (including Närsholmen). The environmental recordings were combined with electronic sounds, and I performed myself live using electronics. The eco-theme was tied together by Girilal Baars, a voice improviser/electroacoustic musician. His improvisations were partly based on elements from the film Stalker, which predicts a dark future of destroyed nature. Since he was born in Russia, he combined Russian language with elements of folk music, experimental vocal techniques and electronics.
