    Programme note 'In the steppes of Sápmi'
    (Ansgar Beste / Sweden)
    The main idea of this work is to reflect on the sparse steppe landscape of Sápmi (Lapland)
    and to create an atmospheric soundscape, by combining the timbre of extended and
    prepared vocal techniques with the timbre of joik vocalization and with animal sounds from 6
    traditional Sami animal joiks, imitating the following 6 animals: long-tailed duck (S), crow
    (Mez), northern hawk owl (A), reindeer cow (T), wolf (Bar) and bear (B).
    The musical and textual repetitiveness of the joik has been made to a compositional
    principle for the entire work, illustrating the monotonous, repetitive scenery of the steppes.
