Mika Björklund - Gunkanjima

Text taken from Webbed Hand

Sound artist Mika Björklund's latest project is a journey by evocation to the abandoned island city of Gunkanjima, which for a while during the 20th Century contained a heavily populated mining settlement. This desolate place still has its apartment towers, factories, schools and other building intact but crumbling.

Through drones, musique concrete and other idioms of electronic music, Mika guides us through its resonant passageways.
