Experi[mental] pia[no] mu[sic(k)]

Project Vainiolla compositions are often simple, but after a while of listening, one can soon hear numerous different layers, sounds and feelings that are communicating together.

METAMORPHOSIS

New album called Metamorphosis is finally here!

Music is created with a prepared grand piano. It's based on looping one bar of music over and over again. Sometimes it's a machine loop and sometimes it's played live. You might notice the difference or not. You can find the album in Spotify, Google Play or iTunes!

New Concert Concept: Project Vainiolla - Becoming

The audience is given a chance to hand out old items they don't use anymore. I prepare the piano during live concert and created new music. Exciting!

Project Vainiolla - Becoming was a part of the Flow Festival Helsinki program this year. It was SUPER awesome to play for all the beatiful people in the festival.

Here is a short video clip from the festival area.

PROJECT VAINIOLLA: ON THE ROAD

Special Project Vainiolla piano system was invented to carry easily the instrument around. This could be done only by one person, me!

I played several concerts during Summer 2016 and here is few magical videos we shot during On The Road Tour 2016

Project Vainiolla thanks everyone who was participating in my Showcase at the Classical:NEXT 2016!

Project Vainiolla - Black Mass

I like to discover the limits of being a musician and an artis. The image of plastic bags all over the grand piano was really fascinating to me.

This video was the first time I played piano inside a bin bag. It was a breath taking experience and some other being was playing the piece.

Project Vainiolla - Shiver (live @ the studio)

I like to add something extra on the strings of the grand piano. In this piece I used bottle corks, blu-tack balls, sticky tape, guitar slide etc. Also I use an iPad application called Animoog to create floating atmosphere.
