I composed three pieces in an old wooden house in Switzerland. Now that haunting atmosphere is here.


I'm a violinist with a classical education but my influences are also in rock, jazz, blues, soul, folk, alternative, indie, electronica, experimental etc..
My other instruments are electro-acoustic violin, viola, baroque violin and viola, viola d'amore and musical saw. On these tracks I play harp and piano too.
Basically I work as a freelancer violinist/violist in professional classical orchestras but I also teach, make studio-recordings, rock/background gigs and my own stuff.
I've done solo gigs with or without orchestra e.g. premiere in Finland of Peteris Vasks' "Plainscapes" for mixed choir, violin and violoncello. Played in symphony and chamber orchestras and lots of chamber music all over Europe.
The long and artistic collaboration with Samu and Ville Kuukka/The Gentleman Losers/The Others Brothers is the most rewarding at the moment and all kinds of collaborations sound interesting to me!


Currently I'm looking for a publisher, please let me know if you got interested! Enjoy.
