    Episode 1 - The Free River (Finnish)

    Episode 1 - The Free River (Finnish)

    This is the Finnish language version of the first Episode of the Land Body Ecologies podcast. The Free River tells the story of Kemijoki, Finland’s longest river that cuts across the country’s northern region. As the first hydroelectric power station was constructed on the river between 1945–1949, the damming of the river Kemi represented a death blow for a salmon-fishing culture that was centuries old, and changed forever the course and balance of this powerful thriving river and ecosystem. The story is grounded in the experiences of two sisters. A generation apart from each other, they both reflect on how the damming shaped their work and lives. In the episode, they journey through the land as they strive to understand the lasting suffering caused when the hydro dam was constructed across their family home and silenced their river.For further details, transcript and images from the process please visit the show notes.

    Episode 1 - The Free River : B-side

    Episode 1 - The Free River : B-side

    This B-side episode of The Free river is a wordless sound journey through the landscapes explored in the first episode of the Land Body Ecologies Podcast..Beginning on the River Kemi upstream of the Valajaskoski hydro dam. Moving from the surface to below the ice the sound follows the journey of the river as it transitions from seemingly still quiet body of water to the furious sounds of the turbines, only audible beneath the surface. Its journey continues through the turbines and explores the sounds of the structure of the dam. Finally the river emerges out the other side. We end with the sound of the last remaining free river in Finland that has no dam from source to sea.
