BIOGRAPHY:

Ville Vokkolainen is a Finnish composer operating within multiple genres of music, music technology and music production. He is also founder of Laponia Improvisations education institute and Art First Records record label.

As a classically trained composer he has worked on combining possibilities of musical liberalism to highly concentrated processes of European classical music. The first CD based on Vokkolainens classical works was released during fall 2016 and could be heard from Art First Records facebook & webpage. More recent works have often been centered around musical banalism, world view created by neo-liberalism and cultural phenomenons of so called post-internet era.
