North-South (international composition project)


I just uploaded my sounds to Notam server for North-South project. There are 13 fresh soundscape recordings from Helsinki, capital of Finland. I created three categories for the sounds: city, coast, forest.
North-South is an international composition project, 9 South-American composers and 9 Scandinavian composers will compose an electronic work from the environmental sounds which we have recorded for the project. My plan is to compose a work based on South-American bird sounds. Below the tracklist of my sounds for South-American composers.
