In this independent workshop, you will walk in familiar landscapes listening to the city and recording sounds on your own phone.

In this independent workshop, you will walk in familiar landscapes listening to the city and recording sounds on your own phone.

This allows you to form your own soundscape, your very own sound jar for the summer holiday, which you can come back to whenever you feel like it.

Along the way, you can think about what your summer sound like, for example. What does Vuosaari sound like? Or how about the metro running along the tracks, a seagull soaring in the sky, a skateboarding ramp or the waves? How would you record the gentle warmth of a rocky outcrop by the sea on your phone? If you stroke the rock surface and record it, you capture the rock and yourself. The city is both common to us all and unique and special to everyone at the same time.

When you listen carefully – the air is thick with stories. YOU are part of the story. Sounds of Vuosaari transports you to explore the city through sounds and directs you to focus on what is sometimes overlooked.

Instructions for the sound trip are available on the Vuosaari House website under the Sounds of Vuosaari event and on the information poster in the Vuosaari House lobby. You can take the trip whenever you like.
