part of the old historic mill, in this room (the jahvataja ruum, or wastepaper feeding room) there are towers built of shredded recycled paper, crushed cardboard and egg cartons. here the process begins, as these materials are loaded onto a conveyor belt to be washed and turned into liquid pulp for new paper. at this moment, it is one of the ‘quiet’ spaces in the mill; the conveyors are off, the pulp has already been made. the sounds of pigeons moving in the rafters and of rattling old windows can be heard.
all recordings at this location made with a sennheiser mkh 30/40 m/s rig to an oade-modded fostex fr2-le.
