Marja Ahti is a musician and composer based in Turku, Finland, who has been a part of the Finnish experimental music scene for more than a decade. You might know her from the ensemble Kemialliset Ystävät, the Himera collective, or her alter-ego Tsembla.
Her third solo album ‘Still Lives’ will be released in early October. Consider it a series of studies on the liminality of listening and an investigation into the physicality of sound. Ahti creates electro-acoustic environments from field recordings, analogue synths, acoustic feedback, magnetic tape and digital processing, which results in a series of articulated, prickly and surprising compositions.
She previously played at Meakusma, at Vooruit, and a very impressive set at Kraaks Eastern Daze festival in 2019.
