Ilia Belorukov & Lauri Hyvärinen

Ilia Belorukov (Saint-Petersburg) – alto saxophone or fluteophone, objects, electronics
Lauri Hyvärinen (Helsinki) – acoustic or electric guitar, effect pedals, objects

Ilia Belorukov and Lauri Hyvärinen met in 2012 at a jam session in Helsinki, a starting point for their long-term friendship and work. Together they played with a variety of musicians before starting their duo. Starting from free improvisation traditions and continuing with quiet contemporary composition, the musicians now approach their music from a more compositional point of view, carefully choosing each sound they produce. The range of sounds used is very wide, from using the surfaces of acoustic instruments such as saxophone or guitar to pick up sounds, to feedback in effect pedals chain or software/hardware modular synthesizer. The duo has several releases on Pan Y Rosas Discos (USA), Rypistellyt Levyt (FI) and Spina!Rec (RU) labels. They will be on their first big tour in November 2017 after some smaller ones in Finland, Russia and Baltic States.


Gigaldi gliedert sich in vier Parts, die vier Jahreszeiten. Die jeweiligen Parts wurden jeweils in der korrespondierenden Jahreszeit aufgenommen, damit die Stimmungen und Klänge möglichst gut in die Musik adaptiert werden konnten. Die ersten Releasekonzerte wird gratt den herbst mit der e-gitarre präsentieren.
