In my work, I interpret the sound landscape of Harakka island into music, into another language through computer-abled generative process.

We are born into sound landscape we are
used to though our lives and we take it as a familiar basic level, compared to which everything is strange and peculiar. It is all about interpretation. When the same sound landscape is repeated as music something weird and unexpected is

Music created by the work does not strive
to fit its tones into any existing note system, yet it re-creates the frequencies of the source material by synthetic instruments as a spectral musical application.

The final result is a musical work which
can never exactly repeat itself. What acts as the composer is the observed
space that creates its own tonal system. The music thus created is not aleatory
but determined by its own rules.

The basic form of the music thus defined is
ambient aesthetics, and in this case ambient sound creates the ambient music
and the borders of music and the world are seamlessly intertwined.
