Young artists of the summer: Mirva Tarvainen – Sonic Journal Live
In stylistic terms, the works may be described as electro-acoustic art pop music with a singing string ensemble, pre-recorded backing and live electronics. The soundscape recordings made by Tarvainen in the field in Australia and Finland play an important role, and they were also the inspiration for creating these works in the first place.
