Timo Kurkikangas has established his renowned status amongst contemporary music sound designers in Finland during the last fifteen years. His studies at the Sibelius Academy have exposed him to Finnish composers and musicians and have kept him in the heart of the Finnish new music genre.
In addition to assisting composers to realise electronic components in their new compositions, Kurkikangas has been working in Finland and abroad with numerous orchestras, contemporary music ensembles and festivals. These collaborations have resulted in hundreds of concerts, ranging from small club events, to surround sound systems in big concert halls, dozens of sound designs and technical realisations of compositions, as well as several recordings.
Kurkikangas is a founding member of defunensemble.
