Ilia Belorukov & Lauri Hyvärinen are joined by Fredrik Rasten. Improvised solos, duos and trio will be heard during the evening.

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. Beginning 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 did first big tour in November 2017 in Holland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovenia and France after some smaller ones in Finland, Russia and Baltic States. In 2018 duo played at Noise & Fury 17 Festival in Moscow.
