“Amphipoda” is the latest release from Finland’s Lau Nau.
Recorded at Stockholm’s legendary Elektronmusikstudion EMS, using a Buchla 200 modular system, the composition translates data on Baltic Sea life into music.
Lau Nau explains the science behind the sounds:
This composition is inspired by how the biomass of plankton vary in the Baltic depending, for example, on the entering saline pulses from the North Sea, the oxygen levels and the temperature of the water.
The effect is primordial synthesis on waves and currents.
