Äänen Lumo presents an evening of… guitars!

CLARA DE ASÍS, a guitarist, composer and performer originally from Spain and now based in France, has developed a non-conventional and personal instrumental approach; with longstanding interest in minimalist frameworks, spacial auscultation and temporal suspension. She uses different combinations of materials and sound sources, with a main focus on guitar. The concert in Akusmata is a solo performance for acoustic guitar, microphones and objects.

SÄHKÖKITARAKVARTETTI is a fresh Helsinki-based electric guitar group concentrating on contemporary/experimental compositions. The group aims to bridge the imaginary gaps between sound art, experimental music, contemporary composition and improvisation. In Akusmata the quartet will premiere works by e.g. Clara de Asís and Russian composer-musician Ilia Belorukov.

Musicians: Juhani Grönroos, Lauri Hyvärinen, Jukka Kääriäinen, Sigurdur Rögnvaldsson.

Thanks to Arts Promotion Centre Finland and Finnish Music Foundation for support.
