Antti Tolvi is one of the key figures in the Finnish improv scene emerged in the beginning of the 00ties, spoiling the world with loads of stunning, highly inspiring tapes and cd-r’s. Tolvi grew up in Panelia, as small village at the coast of Finland. He studied Indian Classical music and played in cult bands like Lau Nau, Lauhkeat Lampaat and Kemialliset Ystätät.
Last year he stunned the world with a three side vinyl, called ‘Pianoketi’ (Fonal), on which he displayed three beautiful minimalist improvisations an a detuned piano. The pieces weave fragile textures of slightly outworldish tapestry, referring to Terry Riley and Lubomyr Melnyk.
