Petri Kuljuntausta’s sound works are often based on research of sound frequencies and how the vibration creates movement in the selected material (water, sand, light, plastic grains, huge metal sheet). In his recent installations Kuljuntausta has used vibrating strings, laser lights, video projection and mirrors.
Kuljuntausta has composed music using whale calls, underwater recordings and the sounds of the northern lights. He has also composed music for experimental films, visual art and dance projects. Over 100 of his works has been published by various labels in Europe, Australia, India, Colombia and the USA.
In Petri Kuljuntausta’s underwater sound installations the sounds are played back through underwater speakers and the audience experience the work by swimming and diving in water. As the ear doesn’t work in water, the listening experience is tactical and is based on bone conduction.
