PERUSSASTAMALA: LA (2021)

LA's music is based on images, labyrinths. Each labyrinth has its own rules how the musician/player navigates in it. The music
isn't notated nor it is purely improvised. Ensemble size varies from tune to tune and at its largest it consists of nine musicians.
LA is a freedom, a game, a labyrinth.

PERUSSASTAMALA: PERUSSASTAMALA
(2016)


Toisto, junnaus ja tajunnan virtaa.

Mikä on lihasmuistin suhde läsnäoloon, aitoon kontaktiin ja mielenkiintoiseen improvisaatioon. hä

Peilaaminen, mässäily, ideoiden varastaminen.
Kliseet, vaikutteet, maneerit, tylsyys ja typeryys. Aitous.

Toisaalta.
