I was in Finland once (performing at the World Tango Summit in Seinäjoki, 2011). The city of Seinäjoki is quite close to the Arctic Circle, so in summer the sun doesn't really set: instead of a night you have several hours of an eternal twilight.

The feeling was that of a transition stopped in time, as a slow motion film of someone springing over a wide river. This can be a wonderful experience (and for me it was), but can be also unnatural to us, Latinamericans, used to the "day is sun and night is no sun" approach to life.

By the way, the temperature during these days in Seinäjoki was 31 Celsius. So my experience of Finland is that of a very warm place. I guess other persons have colder experiences.

There are three versions of this piece:

1) Piano solo 7:40
2) Tibetan Singing bowls 7:40
3) Electronic sounds (ambient) 7:50

The bowls version is recorded at A = 432 Hz. The solo piano and the electronic versions are at A = 440Hz.
