Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m a composer from Finland, based in Helsinki, and I work in Film and TV. My background is from avantgarde Classical Music. I worked as an assistant for Alexandre Desplat, Heitor Pereira, and Abel Korzeniowski, before starting to get my own gigs. I wrote the score for Finland’s biggest box office hit of all time, The Unknown Soldier, which is a movie about the Second World War.
What was the inspiration behind the two albums? (Please try and refrain from mentioning too many TV Shows or films as inspiration)
The inspiration behind the albums were high octane action thriller films of the last 30 years, deriving something from all of them, and trying to create a sense of forever growing intensity.
How did you establish the tone for the two different albums in your writing and performance?
I created a lot of new custom synth patches; drum sounds and sound design.
What was your creative process when creating the albums? How was it different from how you’ve worked before?
My method is to create a lot of material like going to a farmers’ market, seeing what is good that day, and then coming back home and creating a nice meal out of what I was able to get that day.
