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.
