Got a sponsorship to work on ambisonic 3D recordings. Started today at Sipoonkorpi Nationalpark.


My new album is out and this count has gone down from 99 to zero!



Started as part of the Laponia Improvisation collective. At the moment we are looking into composition and classical dramaturgy. It has been rewarding and looking forward to go further from here to where ever it will take me, how ever it will happen.





We had our first residency of the new cross disciplinary art project Inter-floral Mint Box at STL Tallin. It was interesting to see how a project we’ve been planning and seeking funds for for almost a year got its first actual work done. We had a showing on tuesday 1.8 and had a good amount of people coming to watch us and happily giving us good feedback.

Here a picture from the showing.

As it can be seen the project evolves around the colour mint green. We are also exploring Inter-floral ways of communication and working in a collective process.

Our group is:

Laura Halonen

Tom Lönnqvist

Marjut Maristo

Kristian Palmu

+producer Riikka Thitz

The project is supported by SKR Uusimaa, Koneen Säätiö and Taike
