Recordings


A piece for the Longform Editions series, an online gallery of extended, immersive music. Entering a Cloud draws inspiration from the cycles of liquid in the atmosphere and in the body. A strange substance trickles, evaporates, condensates, crystallizes, melts and coagulates into slime, carrying vibration and resonance. Inside the cloud visibility ends at arms length.

The Hole In The Landscape (NNA Tapes, 2018) takes the deep time of geological processes in contrast to the lived time of the human mind and heart, as a thematic starting point – the light fluctuations and deep dents of personal or collective thought and emotion, and the perspective of the slow formation or erosion of mountains, built by shells, dead organisms or fossilized bacteria, then carried away by wind or water.

Electronics and treated samples of recorded acoustic instruments, objects, voices, environmental sounds and feedback.

Dances (Paitapes, 2017). Music for dance and live performances 2016. Synchronized swimming is taken from The Olympic Shames score, a dance performance at Barker Theatre, Turku, in October 2016. The other tracks were made for a tour in Japan the same fall.

Terror & Healing (New Images, 2015) is a string of mind adventures, ten miniatures of possibilities, a bunch of invisible cities and imaginary beings. It’s a contribution to the exploring and unmapping of reality through imaginative research, making the ears like the fingers of the blind, piecing the multitude back into music.

Nouskaa henget (New Images, 2013) consists of loosely assembled, rough edged compositions, rich in details, that come together into odd instrumental miniatures in an almost-pop format and venturing into fourth world territory. Two of the tracks on the album are made in collaboration with flute wizard Antti Tolvi, layering up Tolvi’s overdubbed flutes with hand percussion, samples and electronics.
