Annika Fuhrmann is a versatile singer, musician, and sound artist, who is most at home in the fields of experimental music theater, sound art, improvisation, and contemporary music. Annika has premiered several works composed for her and has performed in interdisciplinary projects with artists from various fields. At the moment, she is drawn to honesty, roughness, incompleteness, and vulnerability in music making instead of technical perfection. Annika is eager to experiment with new working methods and constantly seeks new ways to express herself. This has also led to collaboration with Tom Lönnqvist.

Tom Lönnqvist is a sound, space, and performance artist based in Helsinki. He holds a master’s degree in sound and has been part of several acclaimed dance and theater productions. Tom’s artistic work includes working with body, modular synthesis, video, installation, painting, drums, and ambisonic field recordings. Collaboration with Annika Fuhrmann has emerged from an interest in exploring the potential of modulating the human voice as part of instantaneous composition made with electronic modular synthesis.

The German electronic music label Mille Plateaux has released Annika’s and Tom’s debut performance Live at Asbestos Art Space.,

Philip Holm: Tailor’s Fiddle and Qwerty Kantele
Philip Holm performs solo with string instruments built from a sewing machine and a typewriter. The music of the tailor’s fiddle and qwerty kantele sets in a landscape of meditative ambient drawing inspiration from folk music, sound art and noise.
Holm is a musician from Helsinki, who plays in bands such as Barlast, Oiro Pena and Buko Shane. In 2023, he released a solo album Trådlös, played on a tailor’s fiddle.

Miio Holopainen: Violins, Viola.
Miio Holopainen is interested in “failure” that can happen during bow turns and instruments that in their own ways fail as fiddles but have something special as individuals. Their music pays attention to small but significant changes, decay, details and slow ways of becoming another. Scarcity, coincidence, susurrus, fumbling, mundaneness, simplicity and dust are present.

Vuotalo Cultural Centre, Mosaiikkitori 2, Helsinki

Thursday, April 4
CRACKLEBOX ORCHESTRA (Antti Auvinen, Petri Kuljuntausta, Juhani Liimatainen, and Juhani Nuorvala)
TMS (Tina M.K. Madsen, Malte Steiner)

Friday, April 5


AKUSMATA POLYPHONIC 2024 is an intensive sound art and electronic music event at Vuotalo Cultural Centre in Helsinki. Invited musicians, composers and sound artists are offering for the audience a wide spectrum of new sonic expression from the fields of experimental & electronic music, sound art, improvisation and ambient. The program includes modular sound systems, do-it-yourself musical instruments, and improvised music with attitude. The event features performers from the Faroe Islands, Denmark, Germany and Finland.


TMS is an experimental electro-acoustic noise-performance project by the artists Malte Steiner and Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen. The format of the TMS project is improvisational performances built out of Steiner and Madsen’s sonic interactions, where noise-scapes and complex structures emerge. The tools used in each TMS work and performance can depart in custom software, synths and effect pedals, or self-built controllers, where inputs are analogue as well as digital; modulated, transformed, and distorted. The physical interactions with materials have since the beginning been a specific focus point for TMS, and to create a more performative and visual sound experience.
   At the Akusmata Polyphonic Festival, TMS will debut their new piece “Occurrences”. They have created a cybernetic system which registers and processes their sonic inputs coming from metal percussion and tactile resonance via piezo-microphones. The computer responds to their playing and calculates control data, not only for internal sound synthesis but also for an external modular synthesizer and real-time generated visuals.

Cracklebox (or kraakdoos) is a custom-made, a touch and pressure sensitive device that squeeks and makes incredible noises. Cracklebox is based on a single operational amplifier, one of the earliest models to be produced. The history of Cracklebox starts from the late-1960s, when Michel Waisvisz designed and built the very first Crackle circuit together with Geert Hamelberg. Later the Crackle boxes were produced at STEIM center for research and development of new musical instruments in the electronic performing arts, located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. STEIM closed the doors in 2000 and the production of the original Crackleboxes ended.
   The Cracklebox Orchestra is a group of composers and sound artists who continue to explore the instrument’s potential as a group and come together to perform with the Crackleboxes. The concert features compositions by cracklebox musicians Antti Auvinen, Petri Kuljuntausta, Juhani Liimatainen, and Juhani Nuorvala.

Jens L. Thomsen is a composer and sound artist from the Faroe Islands. He has a BA in Music Technology from University of West London as well as an MSc in Acoustics from London South Bank University. His work often explores the relationship between art and technology. Notable sound works include NORÐ which was commissioned by the Southbank Centre and exhibited at Royal Festival Hall in London, Føroyar 5.2 which with the use of seismic technology allowed him to play on mountains as if they were instruments, and the Æðr soundscape which is transmitted in a Faroese subsea tunnel using FM signals.
   His main artistic outlet is through the project ORKA which he started 10 years ago by building homemade instruments out of found objects on a farm on the Faroe Islands. ORKA has twice been nominated for the Nordic Council Music Award. Jens spends a lot of time producing in the studio and is credited on close to a hundred releases. At the moment he tours as part of Yann Tiersen’s live band.
On February 2, 2024 Jens released the groundbreaking EP ÆÐR via Kervið. ÆÐR (meaning ‘vein’ in English) is a uniquely atmospheric two-track EP, exploring modernity and post-war freedom through a Faroese lens. Commissioned for Eysturoyartunnil, a 12km subsea tunnel – the largest of its kind – in Jens’ native Faroe Islands, a structural marvel with striking art that has both a voice and aesthetic identity of its own. The EP currently lives as a live audio installation, broadcast around the clock on FM radio for anyone travelling through the tunnel. This is the first time a soundscape has been permanently installed and broadcast via this kind of technical solution allowing the sound to become part of the experience of the space itself. At the Akusmata Polyphonic concert, Jens will be performing the piece on stage.

Petri Kuljuntausta compose electronic music, improvises as a guitarist and with electronic instruments, plays with animals and birds, makes underwater performances and performs in different natural spaces with environmental sounds. He has a long career as an experimental electronic musician and sound artist.
Kuljuntausta is currently working on two new projects. He develops the technique of how to play with nature and animals, without disturbing their sound processes. He is currently composing a new opera and writing a book about the subject of the opera. The Akusmata Polyphonic concert will feature his new works and improvisations.

Laila Skovmand and Carsten Kær started working together in 1996 and since then their paths have met in a variety of setups. Latest was in the 28-hour “Red List Concert” in September 2023 in Aarhus, where they were on stage for 28 hours, challenging perception of time and setting focus on endangered species on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Akusmata Polyphonic features free improvisations from two collaborators who have been making music together for a long time. Music is created at the moment of performance. The audience witnesses how the musicians find open possibilities in the space between the piano and the voice.
      Laila Skovmand, voice
The backbone of Laila Skovmand’s artistic work is a boundless curiosity and open-mindedness giving impetus for vocal and compositional inventions. As a singer and composer she deliberately places herself in the gap between genres and media. From here she explores the liminal states of human experience in order to question and challenge assumptions and narrowed perspectives. Laila Skovmand is artistic director of Between Music and is the creator of the underwater concert AquaSonic where she has invented a new underwater vocal technique. Laila graduated as a singer from the Royal Academy of Music Denmark and from Roy Hart International Voice center in France. She also holds an Advanced Postgraduate Soloist Diploma from the Royal Academy of Music as performative composer.
      Carsten Kær, grand piano
Carsten Kær is an award-winning Danish jazz pianist and composer. First and foremost he is a curious improviser, influenced by contemporary classical music. He is also deeply connected to the cornucopia of World Music, Cuban and Brazilian music, and Indian konnakol. Carsten is “a lyrical dreamer who opens our inner landscapes with his surprising soundscapes and leads us by forgotten paths to an untouched place within ourselves.” He is initially self-taught, but graduated from RMB at the Royal Academy of Music in Århus in 1998 and has since been traveling the world, collaborating and recording with numerous well-known artist.

Jukka Kääriäinen is a musician focused on experimental music. Depending on the situation, Jukka’s instruments of choice include an acoustic guitar with preparations or an electric guitar with a bag full of effects. Kääriäinen has performed in many European countries and at international festivals in the United Kingdom, Spain, and France. In addition to solo concerts, he regularly performs in bands and has collaborated with many leading European improvisers such as Teppo Hauta-Aho, Kalle Kalima, Harri Sjöström, Axel Dörner, Kriton Beyer, Rieko Okuda, Anil Eraslan, Mikko Innanen, and Joel Grip, premiering works by composers such as Riikka Talvitie, Sebastian Hilli, Sami Klemola, Clara de Asis, and Tytti Arola. At Akusmata Pollyphonic, Jukka will perform pieces for solo electric guitar.

The two-day event ends with a joint improvisation performed by the musicians present. Acoustic and electronic instruments are heard on stage, sound and tone, acoustic vibration and electric signal, ambient and rhythm meet in the performance.
Whatever the musician’s instrument and sound source, the common denominator for performers is creating a meaningful performance by listening to others and reacting to their playing.

with Kaisa Kukkonen & Jussi Ulkuniemi: dance

FML-duon musiikki on avantgardea, joka syntyy vapaasta improvisaatiosta ja nykymusiikin aineksista.

Molemmilla soittajilla on kymmenien vuosien kokemus esiintymisistä useissa eri kokoonpanoissa, ja eri tyylilajeista, konserteissa ja festivaaleilla.

Muun muassa John Cagen sävellysseminaarissa Viitasaarella 1983 törmättiin moniin haasteisiin: melu, hitaus, hiljaisuus, päällekkäisiä rytmejä, tahtilajin ja sävellajin puuttuminen, ääniä nuottien välimaastossa, preparoidut instrumentit, epätyypilliset äänet ja -tekniikat…

Free Music Lowersin soitossa on ennustamattomuutta, spontaaneja rakenteita ja rakenteettomuuksia. Jos sallit, ne voivat rentouttaa ja viedä mielen syvälle alitajunnan rajapintaan. Tervetuloa yhteiselle sisäavaruuden matkalle!

Record release: Inner Space Travel Music for (Free Music) Lovers:

Kaisa Kukkonen & Jussi Ulkuniemi – tanssi
Tanssijat tuovat esitykseen kontakti-improvisaation liikekielen, joka perustuu fyysiseen kontaktiin, fysiikan lakeihin kuten painovoimaan ja kitkaan ja reagoimiseen siihen mitä on läsnä. He improvisoivat kosketuksella, läheisyydellä ja liikkeellä. Kontakti-improvisaatio on postmoderni tanssilaji, joka on alkanut 1960 ja -70 -luvuilla vapaan improvisaation ja muun muassa John Cagen vaikuttamisen aikaan Pohjois-Amerikassa.

3. Vomitriste

[ówt krì] is a dark ambient project from Helsinki, Finland, weaving abstract soundscapes and dark sound textures that explore the darkest corners of humanity and the mind. The soundscapes are organic compositions that are created with sound looping, effects and DIY instruments of his own making.

Sounds From The Marshes is a solo ambient/post-rock solo project started in 2013 by an Italian artist moved to Finland, consisting exclusively of guitar loops enriched with reverbs and delays.

Vomitriste is a Finnish drone noise/dark ambient duo coining together massive evocative walls of sound and hypnotic visuals. The pair has been involved in mutual musical endeavours for years, and Vomitriste first saw the light of day in the summer of 2022 after other exhausting recording bouts led to an improvised session with analog synths on a quiet Sunday afternoon. After discovering themselves anew amidst dynamic freeform sonics, E & E knew right there on the spot that it needed to be turnt into a full-fledged band aimed at aural and visual exploration and experimentation without further boundaries.
With the initial session leading the way, the duo then went on to record three more albums live, totaling to a four distinct records each with their own main motifs and themes. The first four albums came out in 2022, with the fifth effort “Pavor” coming out in May 2023. Each album has a visual projection counterpart running throughout their full durations, each digging into different themes from the wonders of nature to ever-evolving captivating geometry, and from industrial hues to ritualistic notions, to name a few, and will be utilised in a live setting as well. Together, the projections paired with the music create an immersive and holistic
experience with a signature feel and an aesthetic unique to Vomitriste.

The Silence of Sea Tower / Release #2

Wednesday 11.10.2023 at 18-20.

There is a tower by the sea. An artist is in a pocket of the tower, works, lives in the tower, is still in the tower. The tower speaks, the artist listens. In the night, when the tower is silent, the artist sings and the tower listens. In the night, when the tower is silent, the artist can hear the sea in her pocket.

The Silence of Sea Tower is an auto fictional, site-specific sound art piece, painting a sonic portrait of a building and the liminal aural space between its inhabitants.
9 months of recordings, of the noisy silence in the artist’s studio, is released as soundscape on cassette tape. The work situates itself between ambient noise music, field recording and conceptual spatial art, curating an experience of a place and allowing that place to travel.

The Silence of Sea Tower is performed as the concert iteration Narrative Noise, incorporating elements of storytelling and opening hidden, anthropomorphic aspects of the work.
The composition is deconstructed and reconstructed live, every performance presenting a unique version of the piece.
The concert is played by an orchestra of analogue tape players, each adding their own mechanical sounds and characteristics to the mix.

This event is the second release party for The Silence of Sea Tower, self-released by Xenia Ramm / Merry Thorny Productions.
The tape can be purchased at the event.

Upcoming cassette performances:
22.9.23 / Levoton Tutkimus / Uniarts Fest -taidefestivaali, Taideyliopiston Kuvataideakatemia HKI
11.10.23 / The Silence of Sea Tower / Release #2 / Akusmata HKI

Magnus Bugge: None

The sound installation is part of Envelope – an immersive sound festival across the Nordic – Baltic region.

None: A machine learning based approach to deep listening, atmosphere and fidelity.

In ‘None’ I became occupied with the vast worlds of sound in latent and liminal spaces that would normally be considered ‘silent’. I recorded such sounds: room tones, barely audible field recordings, tape hiss, gear hum, and processed them in various ways to listen closer. I applied machine learning and trained a model on this desolate sound world. The sampleRNN model is ‘a novel model for unconditional audio generation based on generating one audio sample at a time’. One audio sample is basically the elementary particle in digital audio. It is a single point that is meaningless without the context of what becomes before and after, in itself it has no direction, and crucially, no sound. However, knowing the trajectory and velocity you may predict where it will travel based on an idea of what music is. In my case, the intelligence have never heard music before, only silence, and thus predicts based on this.

Sound installation “None” BY Magnus Bugge at Akusmata sound art gallery in Helsinki is part of Envelope – an immersive sound festival happening from September 09 till October 23, 2023 as an event series across the Nordic – Baltic region in person and online. Festival hosts spatial music concerts, sound art installations, seminars and workshops by Nordic-Baltic artists. It is a creative collaboration between organizations and artists from Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania to explore the future of audio technologies. Festival is supported by State Culture Capital Foundation (SCCF), Nordic Culture Fund, Lithuanian Council For Culture among others.

Magnus Bugge is a composer and artist working with sound art, electroacoustic music and related visual arts. He has an exploratory practice where works emerge from studies of concrete and abstract subjects, often inspired from science, technology and physics, in addition to purely auditory phenomena. With experience from stage art, concert, film, installation and fixed media releases, the conclusion is that media is not of importance, as ideas and works will develop in their own way according to their will, and the artist should follow. The tools, primarily synthesis, field recordings, programming, machine learning and tape music techniques are equally not important, but mere means for executing work, experiencing and observing. In addition to his solo practice, Magnus is part of the stage art collective Verdensteatret.
