This is how you create a real soundscape

“Vinyl is dead. Good. Now listen to the beautiful noise of the earth.”

 

Olle Cornéer and Martin Lübcke made this awesome terrafon, which is a large agricultural version of the horn gramophone, amplifying the sounds in the track it ploughs.

Harvest (2009) for terrafon, traditional music ensemble and cropland.

Video: 3’55” (looped).

In this performance Alunda Church Choir, conducted by Cantor Jan Hällgren, plays the soil of northern Uppland (in Sweden). ‘Harvest’ by Alunda Kyrkokör was exhibited at the Volt Festival in Uppsala the 6th of June 2009.

More art by Olle Cornéer can be found on his website.
