Helsinki Computer Orchestra, founded in 2003 and comprised of 20 Finnish
musicians working in the fields of experimental electronics, free improvisation
and noise, will premiere a new composition by the Japanese electro-acoustic
composer Shinji Kanki, who lives in Helsinki. In addition to Helsinki Computer
Orchestra, Avanto presents several upcoming acts from Helsinki's vivid
experimental music scene, such as Emi Maeda (also from Japan and based in
Helsinki), Ibrahim Terzic (a Croatian living in Helsinki) and Dubbing Mixers
(two Finns and a Frenchman living in Helsinki).
