This Field Book is a compilation of audio recordings made and found in Rauma, Finland by Alexander Shevchenko and Lena Filatova (Dva Zagorodnyh Doma) in the frame of RaumArs, Artist in Residence Programme. This compilation is based on the sounds of the environment: the sea and nature surroundings, streets and urban area, inside talks and noises; life performances of elderly people, children, amateur musicians, own improvizations; sounds of old cassettes from flea markets. This is a book of found sounds, a share of impressions about the city based on the puzzle of sounds from which we tried to recollect the clear picture of atmosphere and life in Rauma.
We want to thank all the people who helped us in this project: Hannele Kolsio, Kimmo Haikonen, Kati Nordman & Piia Auvinen from Rauman Freinetkoulu, Aki Heino, and all our friends from Kaunisjärvi Elderly Day Center. Special thanks to Alexander DeMaria and James Horgan.
