I am a Finnish composer, musician, producer and recording technician. I started making music as a teenager with guitar, bass and piano. I also played drums in a couple of bands during the 1970's. However, I soon realized that my greatest ambition was not to play in bands, but to compose and, most importantly, to realize those compositions as recordings. Hours of my one-man-band were recorded using various reel-to-reel taperecorders and partly "DIY" recording gear. When the midi technique emerged (and much later digital workstations) I was finally able to produce music up to professional standards. At the end of 1980's I got my first paying gigs composing music for TV commercials and business videos with these new tools. In 1992 I was the co-producer and arranger of Joel Hallikainen's first album which reached triple-platinum sales and is still in the fifth position of the most sold Finnish records. Since then I have contributed to making of about 20 pop/rock albums. Since 1994 I have been involved in over 150 theatre productions for pro and amateur theatre. For the majority of these I have composed music and/or done sound design. I have also written dozens of song lyrics for theatre as well as done photography and video for various productions. I have composed original music for the national broadcasting company YLE. I've also scored short films. My band project U.N.i released "Dreamland" CD in January 2014. The recording received positive reviews all around the world. More info on the U.N.i subpage!
