Interest to yoik is piqued
Yoiking is part of the Sámi culture and therefore keeping it alive is important. It has a long history that does not need to end. Although personally I have not particularly liked the traditional yoik, my interest is now piqued by it. A year ago, my attitude toward yoik was considerably more distant than now: with my studies, however, I have started to understand the importance of this musical tradition. Now I want to keep yoik going on my part as well.
When I started studying the musical tradition of my family, I initially had difficulties finding the yoik singing tradition or yoikers themselves. A surprise was there to be found, though, as I found out that my great-grandfather had been a yoiker! Nobody at all in the family knew about this. I have learned to make music with a computer and am interested in combining yoik with electronic music. I still do not know how it would be but I plan to develop this idea.
Interest in music technology
Right from the beginning of the summer, I have made several backgrounds for songs. I have concluded collaboration agreements with other creators, which in practice means I have managed to sell songs. After completing my second year and upper secondary school, I am interested in studying music technology or other music studies at a university of applied sciences.
