In the first STHLM NOISE project (2009) a group of electronica artists were given the challenge of turning Stockholm’s most disturbing environmental sounds into music.

The purpose with this and the following projects by Sthlm Noise is to explore our attitudes towards the city sounds – the experiences of sounds are highly individual and by listening to the city sounds as if they were music, new qualities can be discovered. The city may sound better than we thought.

The project was shown at Stockholm Music and Theatre Museum (2009) and as a web exhibition.

Field recordings, video and interviews: Elin Franzén and Håkan Lidbo

Music: Håkan Lidbo, Andreas Tilliander (Mokira), Sol Andersson och Johannes Ahlberg (Noisebud), Sophie Rimheden, Johannes Wikström (Yourhighness).
