After playing a decade of gigs with Tundramatiks and Bad Ass Brass Band, I did music and sound design for few performances and contemporary dance pieces.
Studies with marketing indeed helped to get things thru, but I wanted to focus only in the substance itself. So I did BA in cinema sound design in Aalto University and currently doing last bits of my MA in sound design in Theatre Academy / Uniarts.
This background has led me to do very different kinds of artistic work, which can be cathegorized into musical artist and sound designer.
Some of my recent work you can find in my portfolio.
As an artist, I normally end up leading projects being the person who invites musicians and collegues. This is fun, but I wouldn´t mind not being always the boss!
As a sound designer, I normally get hired to working groups. I believe everything is music or at least can turn into it. It´s just the question of arrangement! Chaotic disharmony or noisy machines are just a step away from a perfect tune, beautiful soundscape or a song.
I tend(ed) to hear about Janne´s ideas, which refer mostly to extravagant and sometimes completely unusable concepts. However, those ideas create the foundation to my artistic work and somehow, in the end, find their way to the performances, contemporary dance pieces, short films and installations. If you find them usefull, please drop me a line!
