“Sonic Intervention Wilderness” (SIW) is the place in which sonic wilderness interventions take place. A place is a SIW if it is unknown to me in a specific sense: SIW describes an environment that appears sonically uncanny, alien, sublime, independent of the familiarity it might have to me in a different context.

I wrote a more detailed description on SIW in the news section of this page.

In 2017, Till and Antye published a text on Instrumentality in Sonic Wild{er}ness as a chapter of the book Musical Instruments in the 21st century — Identities, Configurations, Practices, published by Springer.

In 2017, Till compiled a radio show for Framework Radio, based on material collected by all participants throughout the two prior field sessions.

In 2016, Till gave a talk on SIW at ZKM Karlsruhe.

In 2016, Till, Antye, Anja, Annie, Darsha, Inge, Jacob, Katharina, Lee, and Peter met on the small island Hailuoto to engage and search for sonic wilderness. A report can be found here.

In 2015, Antye, Till, Dinah, Anja, Kristina, Vygandas, and Caspar came together to engage in a series of sonic wilderness interventions with portable electronic instruments within the hybrid ecology surrounding the lake and settlement of Kilpisjärvi, located close to the three-nation corner of Finland, Sweden and Norway. They collected their impressions in a report.
