About

EN

Tuomo Väänänen is a Finnish musician and sound artist, originally coming from a small seaside town of Vaasa, and currently based in Helsinki. His sound is a mixture of slowly evolving analogue synth sounds, dubby techno and field recordings. Most important to him is the act of listening, be it the song of the first migrating birds in spring, or a nicely resonating bass drum played through a big PA system.

Besides his releases, Tuomo has made music and sounds for theatre and short films, as well as worked with visual and performance art. His latest LP Topics came out in late May on Ljudverket, a label he runs with fellow producer Rasmus Hedlund.

NO

Tuomo Väänanen er en Helsinki-basert musiker og sound artist fra sjøsiden i Vaasa. I Väänanens lydbilde foreligger det en blanding av analoge synther, tekno og field recordings. Det aller viktigste som ligger til grunn er lyttepraksisen, enten det er sangen til vårfuglene som har returnert eller en basstromme som dirrer gjennom PA-systemet.

Hans nyeste album Topics kom ut i mai via Ljudverket, et plateselskap han styrer sammen med produsent Rasmus Hedlund. Utenom utgivelser på eget navn, har Tuomo også skapt musikk for diverse teateroppsetninger og kortfilmer, samt visual -og performance kunst.
