Lyd-ID is an ongoing project created by Kristine Hansen.

Lyd-ID is about sound-identifying various places in Northern Norway, connecting the material with traditional music from each specific place and create new music out of it. The project raises the questions; is it possible to identify a place only through sound? …and is there a connection with the specific places and the traditional music that can be discovered and highlighted in the new music?

By doing Lyd-ID in various places and comparing them afterwards, Kristine hopes to be able to answer these questions.

Each Lyd-ID-project will be presented as an individual production. For each production, Kristine is doing fieldwork lasting for 3 weeks, writing new music using her own material as well as performing it herself.

Kristine went working close to Láhpoluoppal – a small village in Finnmark county i June/July 2017. It’s possible to read about her fieldwork in the link below. This production is the first edition of a Lyd-ID-project, and had its premiere in September 2018, as a part of Finnmark Slagverkfestival. The project is made possible through an Artistic Scholarship, granted by Sami Artist Council (2017)

In 2020, Kristine will do another Lyd-ID-production, this time in Røst.
