I studied composition 1997–2005 with Erkki Jokinen and Paavo Heininen at Sibelius Academy and several international master classes. I have circa 40 composition from solo work to operas and orchestral works. My works have been performed worldwide, f.ex. in New York, Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Moscow, Shanghai and Tokyo. I have been worked earlier a part-time teacher and an assistant of composition at Sibelius Academy.
Working on the interfaces
My artistic research has two main focuses. The musical target is to expand my musical idiom by operating between the axis of noises and tones, and to use them as a part of harmony and musical identity in my compositions. Both, the artistic work and the written thesis, will be focused in the sonorous events of the interfaces between the noises and the tones.
Another key priority is the observation of the special questions in the contemporary music theatre and operatic works. In particular I am interested in the interface of the performance and reality, especially acoustic reflections between music and concrete everyday sounds.
My artistic part includes three operas in everyday life, one larger operatic work and several works for chamber ensembles and singers.
My artistic supervisor is composer, professor Veli-Matti Puumala and supervisor of written thesis is recearher, associate professor Tuire Kuusi.
