More Info:

This recording presents vocal music by two of the leading Finnish modernist composers of the 1970s generation. Sampo Haapamäki (b. 1979) has made a name for himself as an innovator in the area of microtonal music and Antti Auvinen (b. 1974) who challenges the boundary between musical sounds and noise, making "noisy" elements an integral part of it's language. There is a particular emphasis on so-called extended techniques (non-conventional methods of sound production: in vocal terms, a whole repertoire of grunts, shouts, squeals and other sounds not usually associated with singing).
