LICKING THINGS by Sari Palmgren & working group
Teaser video: Perttu Saksa
9.-17.11.2016 in Zodiak

Licking Things is a meeting of live music and the primitive motion clinging to life at all costs. The performance looks for fulfilment through music and motion, and examines the empty moments that make fulfilment so full. When something reaches that fullness it disintegrates in its perfection, vanishes – and becomes empty again.

The music is composed by Mikko Perkola and Tuomas Norvio, who also appear on stage with Katri Soini and Sari Palmgren. Their music is inspired by old vocal music and Perkola's instrument, the viola da gamba, and taken to new spheres by Norvio's electronics. Primitive movement and growling: the weight of the dancers' bodies fill the space where incompleteness maintains a lust for life.
Ravel is a short video by Gemma Tweedie with music by Tuomas Norvio, featuring performer Sampo Kurppa. It is part of the theatre, visual art, and sound project, Only Bones, which takes non-text based performance in the expanded narrative form into sparse environments.

OU as in 'OverUnity', more commonly referred to as perpetual motion is 'a motion that continues indefinitely without any external source of energy', is a video created as a parallel project to the theatre show Only Bones.
Using choreography directly from the theatre show, OU combines Tuomas Norvio's track and the eccentric movement to make an independent but intertwined creation.

Luova Tuho - Creative Destruction

Luova Tuho - Creative Destruction is an installation and a live performance combining Ilkka Rautio´s film, Saara Norvio´s dance and Tuomas Norvio´s music. The premier was at the Festival Norpas in Taalintehdas at 21.8.2015.

The work was filmed in Koverhar, an old steel factory, that is being demolished. The factory was closed down in 2012 and hundreds of people got unemployed, leaving everything behind.

The installation is a multichannel film and sound piece. The live performance combines live electronic/ acoustic music, contemporary dance and VJing with the film material.

Pohjonen Alanko

Pohjonen Alanko at Norpas-festival 2015, filmed Ville Tanttu

Pohjonen Alanko is the mutual musical landscape of Ismo Alanko and Kimmo Pohjonen, in which the two men study the different dimensions of the human voice. The music, which starts out from voice improvisation, moves from a primitive outburst of feeling via controlled chaos to lyrical melodiousness. Tuomas Norvio’s sample world and Alanko and Pohjonen’s own instruments paint the landscape with their sharp shades of colour.

Rinne, Norvio, Huhtamäki - Mindscape Music album

Cover design Artur Närvänen

2/2014. Vinyl album.
We recorded our trios improvisational concerts in Suistoklubi, Hämeenlinna during 2011-2014. Then we edited, combined and manipulated them to make an album that is something different than the starting point.


Gift! solo album

Cover design: Kati Hyyppä

In 2012 I actualized a long time thought to Thank people that i haven´t been able to before.

The album was composed between 2010 and 2011, some songs from a scratch and some from bits that I had made for earlier works.

  1. Maillot
  2. So Long and Thanks For All
  3. Bubble Memory
  4. Redshift
  5. 999 Genders
  6. Boom Boom Llamas
  7. King of Sweden


Solo electronics

Since 2011 I have had a few solo performances. They have been largely improvisational. I don´t have a stable concept how to perform my own music, only the laptop and Lemur remains every time.

The last few times shows have been a play around baritone ukulele, live sequencing of beats and manipulation of those two elements on the spot.

I have also performed live in some circus and dance performances. Some of these shows have been more acoustic and some more electronic.
