Main instruments:

clarinet and bass clarinet.

In addition to all members of the clarinet family I also play the electronic wind controller and the liru, an archaic Finnish folk clarinet. I am a member of defunensemble, a new music group devoted to the performance of electro acoustic music. I have written a comprehensive guide on contemporary clarinet technique Exploring the clarinet, published by Fennica Gehrman.
