SOUND OF LAPLAND
Close your eyes and just listen.
Sound has a remarkable effect on our thinking and behaviour. And the best sounds relax our bodies and relieve stress and anxiety.
What you hear all day everyday goes right past your thoughts and buries itself deep in your mind. But what if, rather than the constant pressure of the sounds of everyday life, you heard bird singing under the Midnight Sun? What if you heard a dingling reindeer cowbell instead of a blaring car alarm?
Sound of Lapland blurs the lines between artist, instrument and medium, exploring the natural and local soundscapes of Finland’s northernmost region, the largest part of the happiest country on Earth.
Here, the wonders of nature and treasured local traditions combine to form experiences you can’t get anywhere else. In Europe’s last wilderness, the nearest forest is always just ten minutes away and wild wonders permeate the cultures and everyday lives of Lapland’s people.
Welcome to explore the sonic world of Lapland!
Our new album SCAPES offers relaxing songs of nature and ambient sounds of Lapland life. Even if you’re standing in downtown Manhattan with your 2 million closest friends, you can pop in your earbuds and let SCAPES whisk you away to the rolling fells of the North.
The Lapland Sound Collection bundles together authentic sounds taken from the wilderness and local life in Finnish Lapland, for creative use in your own projects–songs, podcasts, videos, slideshows, ringtones … you name it!
