Olli Aarni (born 1988) is an experimental musician working in Vantaa, Finland. His music reflects the weather conditions and creates artificial views of the nature.

Aarni's sounds are based on dense timbres and static harmony, and the soundscapes yield rhythmic repetition and create worlds to get lost in: like reality condensed into magic or a hidden valley between new age and noise. 

Aarni's discography spans over 20 tapes, vinyls and CDs released on four continents, and he has performed in Japan, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Finland. 


An AIR-programme grant from Nordic Culture Point 
has made it possible to invite Olli to work at EMS.
