Abstract

Atolli (Atoll) is an audiovisual installation consisting of colour slides from 1960s and '70s which are projected with three slide projectors partly on top or each other. The pictures show Mediterranean landscapes and close-ups taken from flowers in Häme, Finland. The carousel projectors are not synced together, nor with the music. The music is composed and arranged for a custom 8-loudspeaker sound system. The music, 10'30" long looping piece composed by Antti Ikonen, consists of noise-intensive passages played by Heta Kaisto using Knifonium tube synthesizer. The installation was commissioned by Pori Film Festival.
