ARTTU PARTINEN has been making music around 15 years now. Some of his projects (most visible being the long-lived band Avarus) were central in the international breakthrough of the “New Weird Finland”-genre around 2005-2006. Solo, he has been known as Amon Düde, but in recent times also under his own name.
In his performances, he combines noise dynamics with slapstick moves. He often seems to struggle with his gear, surprising himself as well as the audience. As sound sources he uses found tapes, his own recordings, world music cassettes, nature sounds, human voice, processed live percussion etc.
