Flatlands Musicians

Musicians have now been selected for the performance of Flatlands, the joint project by Lönnström Art Museum and artist Jani Ruscica (b. 1978) featuring three imaginative instruments. The bamboo instrument will be played by keyboardist and harpsichordist Matias Häkkinen (b. 1981), the glass instrument by saxophonist Linda Fredriksson (b. 1985), and the instrument of readymades by electronic musician Sara Milazzo (b. 1983).
Performances: 2.–3.6. Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art (RIBOCA1), 9.8. at Poselli, Rauma and 16.8. at Helsinki Music Centre.

“It was important for me that all three musicians have their own distinctive approach to music. They share an openminded attitude towards the potential of music and an interest in experimentation, and they like to challenge conventions and push boundaries in their own work,” Jani Ruscica describes the criteria for the selection.

Known for her expressive playing style, Linda Fredriksson is a versatile musician who likes to break boundaries. Matias Häkkinen is a visionary keyboard artist whose range extends from Renaissance to contemporary music. Sara Milazzo has a strong sense of material and physicality that she employs with sensitivity and subtlety in her performances.
