25'24 minutes, stereo soundpiece
This record is based on sound recordings made on site in Rydöbruk and Hyltebruk. Some of the sounds are unaltered while others have been through hard processing. The source is however always the same. It all begins with the river. Just like how the industrial communities once arose along the river, this composition is built around the ripple and roar of the river Nissan. A pulse consisting of sounds captured at the Stora Enso paper-mill slowly grows strong and continues to run alongside the recordings of the river. Sometimes confusingly similar, sometimes in direct opposition, but always dependant of each other. When the paper industry developed it was totally dependent of the river in the same way, and now the communities are dependent of the industries. When the production moved from Rydöbruk to Hyltebruk it was more or less a death sentence to the former community.
