Music created with various tape recorders that are playing prepared piano tracks through eurorack modular synthesizer.
Project Vainiolla Ensemble - Suruvesi
Project Vainiolla Ensemble’s debut album Suruvesi is an exploration of possibilities of laments and a prepared piano. The laments - also called poetry of eternal parting and final passing - are mixed with instruments, both acoustic and electronic, and improvised soundscapes that were recorded in the fields and forests.
Suruvesi live performance at Magnusborg Studios

Project Vainiolla: Weeping
Weeping is a journey to old Finnish folk music and imaginary soundscapes. Music is created with one prepared piano and two resonating grand pianos. There are also included a pre-recorded tape, light design (red lights) and onions.
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 - 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.
