with Veljo Runnel
Wednesday, April 28
Eesti Rahva Muuseum, Tartu
This second meeting of helikoosolek:tartu will be led by Estonian nature
recordist, phonographer, and photographer Veljo Runnel. Veljo is a
biologist based in Tartu who has been making nature recordings since
1999, founding the loodusheli website (http://www.loodusheli.ee) with
the Estonian Fund for Nature (ELF) soon thereafter. Veljo says, "I
think I can name myself as a nature educator and nature guide. This also
applies for nature sounds. I am educating people and helping them to
listen, understand and enjoy nature."
For our meeting, along with a presentation of his photography and
recordings, Veljo will address the following topics:
- Discovering aesthetic resources from nature.
- Learning to listen.
- Soundjourneys to wild places.
- Birds - artists or advertisers?

helikoosolek:tartu is organised by MoKS and supported by Eesti Rahva
Muuseum, Tartu Linnavalitsus and Eesti Kultuurkapital.
