Listen to “Eutrophic” by Lake Ülemiste (Listen Up)
Lake Ülemiste is a project by Emilia Jasmin which shares its name with the largest of the lakes surrounding Tallinn, Estonia but that’s where the similarities start and end. Lake Ülemiste’s “Eutrophic” is filled with field recording patterns and experimental loops that are masterfully brilliant, you are taken to a new place and discover something new with every listen… I can safely say that “Eutrophic” is a piece of art and one of the best of the year. Read about the circumstances that inspired the the recordings below:
“In the spring of 2018, my energy was at an all time high. I wanted to see, hear and try everything, so I decided to do just that. With only a backpack and minimal equipment, I started recording sounds from all the places I visited. From short trips to the Danish seaside to wandering the streets of Hamburg. From my Grandmother’s backyard in the English countryside to the New York City Subway. From a lighthouse in Portugal to intense summer downpours in Japan. I didn’t realize I was making a record, rather recording small moments from my adventures that made me fall in love. Eutrophic is the result of those moments.”
— Emilia Jaspin
“Eutrophic” is out now on Copenhagen based cassette label Year 22, on CS/Digital.
