Tondikt med Söderskär is a cityinstallation planned and composed for Porvoo and Avanti! 2022. It will be performed in Porvoo´s Jokiranta for 15 years during 2022–2037. The sound installation was executed with Jussi Suonikko.

Tondikt med Söderskär is inspired by the bare and beautiful nature of Söderskär and its lighthouse. High whistles of guillemot, the chains of boat, the sound of the open sea and the wind and the wavering hurricane lamp are united in this symphonic poem with a verse Söderskär by Arvo Turtiainen. 

Vocalist on the tape is Kielo Kärkkäinen.

Duration: 02:23

Tondikt med Söderskär, a verse from Arvo Turtiainen´s poem Söderskär

Siellä auringon uuvuttamat luodot

ja karien kuumat otsat,

siellä aaltojen lakkaamaton ajo

ja maininkien paini riuttojen rintaa vasten.


Diktfragment Arvo Turtiainen, översättning Henrika Ringbom

Därute skären utmattade av solen

och grynnornas heta pannor

därute vågornas ändlösa gång

och dyningarna tryckta mot revens bröstkorg
