More than just a concert, it will be a total ambient music immersion, a chance to hear great ambient music but also an opportunity to meet and network with fellow enthusiasts. We have brought together some of the best up-and-coming international ambient talents, along with established local names, in an amazing venue. Located in the heart of forests and lakes, part of the front wall of the auditorium can be opened up to give a view of the stunning scenery beyond, providing a spectacular backdrop for musical performance.
The event kicks off with a Networking Dinner before a unique night of "dark ambient" with the Finns.
In addition to live performers, the main conference day will present educational sessions, specially-commissioned music for video, a live web cast, and a chance for participants to have their own music included in our pre-concert Mix.
Our performers include the legendary Finnish ambient electronic band Nemesis, and a much-anticipated debut European performance from Ascendant, joining us all the way from California. This ambient duo comprises Chris Bryant, well-known in the ambient world from his solo releases as S1gns of L1fe, along with grammy-nominated mastering engineer Don Tyler, aka Phase47.
Also performing live will be English ambient artist Simon Lomax Music as well as the multi-talented Ivan Black from UK. Finally, joining us all the way from Texas is the one and only Massergy.
If you are an ambient music composer or enthusiast, this event offers an amazing chance to network with like-minded people, learn something new, have your own music heard, hear some of the best live ambient music around, and generally have an unforgettable Helsinki City Break experience.
