Me and my friend are recording the sound generated by the high voltage(400kV) powerline, in this case located in Porjus, a small swedish village north of the arctic circle. The sound is recorded with special contact elements, mounted in different ways on the pylon. Different sounds is heard depending on the national power consumption, but the nature itself also influence the timbre. Wind, birds and insects can be heard on the recordings. Note that this movie contains four passages of sounds. You will probably need headphones or a good sound system to hear the impact of the sound.
