The history of life on earth is a series of biodiversity peaks followed by mass extinctions. Evolution happens slowly over millions of years. External circumstances sometimes change abruptly, almost instantly. Time moves ahead.

Avian Electronics | Time Runner is a sound installation for 14 speakers and electronic sound. Synthesized natural sounds surround the listener, appearing, evolving and dying away. Electronic insects chirp, a digital forest hums, signals relay messages in a void and an artificial fire scorches the land.

Ville Aalto is a sound artist and musician. In his works synthetic nature sounds are surrounded by electronic soundscapes and music. The sounds are lively but spiritless, artificially realistic. The world is full of sound vibrating in the emptiness around us.

The installation is open during Stoa’s opening hours.
