ARIA soundproject, 1999, August – September

The author of the project - German musician Jogannes Valmann.

The organisation of the Russian part of the project: the head of the Yekaterinburg ElectroAcoustic Music Studio – T.V.Komarova

Organizational and technical support: State TV Co, musical edition.

J.Valmanna's ARIA concept represented the global international sound-project for 7 sopranos and 7 different sound landscapes (soundscapes), chosen and fixed in 7 points of globe.

Concept realisation has been dated for approach of the third millenium and bore in itself highhumanistic idea of a general brotherly unification.

Search of the Russian sound landscape it has been decided to make in Yekaterinburg and its vicinities. Before studio there was a task in view of search of the place most suitable in this respect, studying of features of its sound landscape, its fixing and the description. Participation in this International project became very curious experience in area ‘shootings’ of various environment sounds.
