The world requires art –
in all of its forms,
in every city,
in every village.

The world requires art –
in all of its forms,
in every city,
in every village.

Art aids us in understanding who we are: to begin, ever anew, to know ourselves.

I work with and through the medium of sound: vibration and silence. Whether bringing music into the ebb and flow of a remote hamlet’s soundscape – or bringing to life a vast, cavernous acoustic – I am captivated by music in dialogue with space.

Music has introduced me to people across the world from
Buffalo, NY, to the Balkans

It has formed unforgettable moments: whether in the cosy cafés of my home town of Rovaniemi, at the site of the Outokumpu copper mine, or in the tiny railway station waiting room of Kajaani where music brought bundled-up passengers together out of the freezing cold, and into the warmth.

The study of Music is a life-long road.

The study of Music is a life-long road.

I am grateful for my teachers in Rovaniemi, Helsinki, Berlin and Budapest: the understanding of tradition and our inheritance is the first footing for one’s own path. I step forward, the bearer of these traditions, eager to break new ground.

The warmest of welcomes to my concerts!
