Juho Laitinen

Juho Laitinen performs, composes, curates, teaches and writes. His interests lean towards the traditions of avantgarde and experimental art and microtonal and electroacoustic music in particular. Improvisation is his passion.Juho s compositional work focuses on ambiguous characteristics in the physicality of sound; an open-minded approach to new sounds made by new instruments; and the promotion of a non-hierarchical, freely associative art experience. Juho curates the locally-oriented Kallio New Music Days festival as well as the international Tulkinnanvaraista recital series. He teaches at Sibelius Academy and has written articles on topics ranging from Lucier to Puccini. Having initially studied at the Conservatory of Turku and the Royal College of Music in London, Juho recently received his doctorate from Sibelius Academy. In his Manifesto of Sounding he argued for a oneness of music and the surrounding reality. Juho is grateful to the many Finnish foundations that continue to support his artistic pursuits.
