Sound Art Gallery Akusmata presents new and current sound art. Akusmatan construction began in December 2011 and the first exhibition opened in February 2012. Founder of the gallery is a sound artist and composer Petri Kuljuntausta. (who really is an encyclopedia of all things sound, says Kimmo Modig)

A work by Petri Kuljuntausta & Dario Martinelli: ZOOSPHERE. A Musical Encryption of Animal Sounds (CD, 2008): “Zoosphere is an uncompromising work of experimentation, aimed to explore the richness and the potential of animal voices, with an approach that is by no means passive and contemplative, but rather inquisitive, intrusive and profoundly creative.”
Based in Helsinki Akusmata
