Kirmo Lintinen – composition, Arja Puikkonen text, Tampering Ensemble – accompaniment

Nature-themed workshop
at 10 AM – 4 PM ǀ Culture House Laikku ǀ free entry

If we imagine that the forest is a great symphony, what would the footsteps of a bear sound like, and what would be the sound made by a blueberry ripening? What would be the colour and shape of that sound if it were turned into a painting? At this workshop at Rulla, we will all create a ‘Forest symphony’. A symphony always has an entire orchestra playing, and so we will all do this together.
