Tytti Arola is a Finnish sound artist and composer who is interested in bringing daily life to concert venues, doing multisensorial compositions and exploring spatial sound. Arola’s artworks often include electronics and lately she has been drawn towards performance art and instrument building. At EMS Arola will be working on acousmatic spatial compositions dealing with seasonality. The new pieces are part of an ongoing sonic research on the versatility yet the repetitiveness of the yearly cycle in Finland.
