Ten sound artists and musicians from around the Circumpolar North received a one-minute sound clip from one of five sites throughout the state, including Anchorage, Nenana, Nuiqsut, Soldotna, and Sitka, where the Anchorage Museum continuously records sound data as a part of a soundscape ecology research project.
Each soundscape recording tells a short, sonic story of a place on a specific day, time, and season. The excerpts were recorded at 9 a.m. each day January through May 2019. Each artist took a distinct approach to responding to the sound clip provided. Some incorporated an excerpt; others drew inspiration from specific sounds and rhythms for their new compositions.
