Both ensembles will also perform together and premiere Andreas Eduardo Frank's new work Performance Is a Monster (2019)

TRISTERO is an underground mailing service in Thomas Pynchon’s novel The Crying of Lot 49. Following our own underground path the trio takes detours also to older music, investigating all kinds of musical phenomena. The trio's programs are designed by composer Ville Raasakka.

EMIL HOLMSTRÖM and his hat are a familiar sight for everyone keeping up with the Finnish contemporary music scene. His calendar is a chaotic sight, containing gigs with orchestras, free improvisation, Uusinta Ensemble, defunensemble, Ristiveto, composing and plenty of other things. 

ERIIKKA MAALISMAA is a founding force behind Jousia Ensemble and Quartet, HÄRÖ collective, Ristiveto Festival and Classical Hietsu in Helsinki. She has worked as leader of numerous orchestras and ensembles including the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Avanti! and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

VILLE RAASAKKA uses field recordings, internet discussions and all sorts of everyday and social topics as source material for his compositions. His works have been performed at festivals Eclat, Archipel, Gaudeamus Muziekweek, Royaumont and June in Buffalo. His special interest are the visual arts, which he studies secondarily in his doctoral studies in composition at the University of the Arts Helsinki.

MARKUS HOHTI feels equally at home with new music, a baroque cello in hand, or at a jazz club stage.  Work as a soloist or in his own groups defunensemble, Uusinta Ensemble, Ensemble Laboratorium and Sid Hille Collective have taken him to places like Our Festival, Lucerne Festival, Salzburger Biennale, Zürich Tonhalle and the Berliner Philharmonie.
