LAB 2018
About Lab
In 2018 participants of the Lab in Murmansk worked inside unique polyphony of Northern sounds and noises: from almost imperceptible fragile voice of tundra to 24-hour industrial ambient of harbour cranes and mile-long train sets.

Under guidance of Petr Makarov (RU, Murmansk) and BJ Nilsen (NL/SE) they combined city noises into five tracks of this compilation.
