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.

Marja Ahti (f. Johansson) is a Swedish-Finnish musician and composer based in Turku, Finland. Her main creative output is the solo moniker Tsembla.

Using electronics, modified samples of acoustic instrument,
non-instruments and environmental sounds, she makes music that rides on waves of warped melodies, abstract voices and mutating textures – rough edged compositions, rich in detail,
that come together into instrumental miniatures. She also composes music for dance performances and film.
