About akipaivarinne

I am a Helsinki-based freelance saxophonist and composer/sound designer with a broad and international experience of live- as well as recorded performance. Currently I am studying masters degrees in Sound in New Media at the Aalto university and Ma in Sound design at the theatre academy. I have played and collaborated with various performance artists; choreographers, dancers, film makers and musicians and have appeared on the sax on various albums. Lately, I have found it increasingly interesting to work with sound in an interactive relation to movement and choreography. In my composing, I am inspired by my, son, nature, infrastructures, cities, people, love, dance, film and other visual art forms. I am always keen on exploring new ways of expressing new ideas.

Sound River (6ch. sound installation) was presented during Cumulus conference in the school of art, design and architecture whitin Aalto University in may 2012. This work was a collaboration with my close friend and collague Markus Lindén.

Listen to it in stereo format.
