Muu For Ears 10

MUU FOR EARS 10 is the tenth CD in MUU’s series of sound art publications. It consists of soundtracks which were originally produced for Finnish video artworks. As in the cinema, the soundtracks of videos are a crucial element for the telling of the story. Compiled exclusively of soundtracks, MUU FOR EARS 10 emphasizes the fact that sounds can tell even more than images. The CD contains a wide range of material, such as an echoing dark and distant melody, humming sounds and random noises, found footage-based sounds and poems, samples and field recordings, industrial and digitally generated music.

The first successful CD compilation with soundtracks, MUU FOR EARS 4 (released in 2010), is now followed by a second soundtrack compilation featuring 11 tracks by 10 artists, who all work on the borderline between sound art and experimental and traditional music.

The artists are: 

Yannick Franck (video: Harri de Ville)
Jarno Juhani Harakkamäki
Paevey Hirsiaho
Panu Johansson
Hannu Karjalainen
Antti Katajisto (video: Anu Miettinen)
Heli Konttinen & Emilia Salpaharju (video: Heli Konttinen)
Nina Lassila
Carl Sebastian Lindberg
Tommi Matikka (video: Tommi & Maria Matikka)
