Bassist-composer Lauri Porra’s Cabins & Hideouts is a meditative work that takes listeners to the forest, lake and summer cottage. Described as a combination of concert and sound bath, the work includes the sounds of nature (finch and Kuika birdsong) paired with orchestral instruments. Cabins & Hideouts is his attempt to capture the atmosphere experienced at a cabin, in the middle of the woods, and depict a day-long arc from morning to night and to the next sunrise into a soundscape that could be shared in concert settings.
