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

Sulamisvesissä is now out for listening on YLE Areena. This is a project of Henna Laininen and Eero Nieminen that I collaborated in with some music and field recordings.

As part of it there is also an exhibition at Exhibiton Laboratory in Helsinki.

That installation by Fabian Nyberg, Henna Laininen and Eero Nieminen was definitely worth a view!

 

We also played a live set with Eero and trumpet player Markus Virtala at the diskussion event that was part of the exhibition. The discussion was interesting with a lot of good points from Prof. Mikael Hildén, Dr. Panu Pihkala, Paula Sankelo, Henna Laininen and Kaisa Kortekallio.

My song Scifi Play from the piece “Posthuman days” was part of the Avaruusromua program on YLE 1. The program can be heard in YLE areena for a month.

Helsinki Art Walk visited my exhibition. We did a session together, by spending some time silent in the space. This was also the last day of the exhibition. The sun gave me a warm goodbye to the space.
