Jari Suominen is a musician, a new media artist and a researcher. Currently he is active member of electronic psych group Shogun Kunitoki, psychedelic power duo Jarse, folk rock sextet Kiila and art lollective Anna Breu.
During his stay at EMS he is working on his project DIMI is Reborn, which is about documenting and constructing new version of DIMI-A, an early digital synthesizer by Finnish electronic arts pioneer Erkki Kurenniemi from the year 1970. Originally only two synthesizers were made. One of them is currently located in the collections of the Swedish Perfomming Arts Agency thanks to a donation from Ralph Lundsten.
