Hälytyskellot is a sound piece that spreads to the riverbank. The piece researches how to survive together, how to be touched and how to be heard. In the work, a group of people forms a long chain by holding two-meter ropes with jingle bells attached to them. The sound of a single jingle bell might be quiet, but when hundreds of jingle bells are heard at the same time, the sound multiplies and is heard. The work invites the audience to take part in performing an experimental composition and to participate in a silent and jingling demonstration.
Tytti Arola is a composer and sound artist who is interested in bringing daily life to concert venues, doing multisensorial compositions and exploring spatial sound.
