(RUMOURS!!! There is finally interest in releasing this double album this year. We didn’t want to change the artistic view which resulted in a waiting time of more then 8 years! We’re glad we did!)

Music For Installations has been selected for a residency at Arteles in Finland during October 2011. This means focused work on a series of soundscapes and ambient music. As we are in a group of artists together in the wide outdoor nature of Finland, you have a unique opportunity to meet other people and share some artistic ideas. Together with a performance and a presentation in the Pori Art Museum, this stay resulted in a massive amount of material to be used in releases and live sets, even still TODAY!

On this page you can find the most information concerning this residency in 2011. Below you can prelisten some samples of the tracks created on site. This resulted in the Haukijärive-cycle. This cycle is a 31-day series of musical contributions that we will plan to release in the future (update: rumours confirm that it should happen finally this year!). Music For Installations would like to thank everybody who believed in this project and supported it until know.

Arteles SiteAbout Arteles (source website): The most international artist residency in Finland welcoming over 80 creative professionals per year.

It is an inspiring place to produce original work and collaborate with other energetic and ambitious artists & creative professionals. We are place that encourages experimentation and innovation – a place that also gives voice to works that otherwise have nowhere else to be produced or displayed.
There are lots of opportunities to connect with the locals and get plugged into the contemporary art scene in Finland.

The location of Arteles is in the extraordinary nature of Hämeenkyrö Finland (European Union Landscape Award in 2009) where you can soak in the fresh air, go for wandering, walks in the deep forests, swimming in the many lakes nearby, go skiing and skating at winter time, do guided hiking and trekking trips in the nearby nature or have daily relaxing in a traditional wood-fire sauna.

The great Finish outdoor is a perfect companion for this album. It reflected very strongly on the music itself, even until the level of the more abstract soundscapes.

The fragments are snippets of about three minutes taken from the every day take. These are the rough versions out of which we will extract an album. This has been postponed quite a few times due to other musical missions. Next ‘deadline’ is spring 2014. So enjoy this travel into time and folded space and get ready for the new release!
