Toinen peili – The Other Mirror (2020)

When composing this piece, I was impressed by works of Finnish painter Samuli Heimonen such as ”Rusetti” and ”Toinen peili”. I was touched by his way to express the integrity and distinction of the human being and the nature at the same time in a brutal but beautiful way. These works always resonate in me and give something to think about. In this piece I wanted to express things that are ”cut from the same cloth” (Finnish expression ”carved from the same tree”) and are trying to find harmony but sometimes are drastically drifting apart. The work was composed with the help of Arts Promotion Centre Finland and Finnish Cultural Foundation.

Toinen peili was commissioned by and is dedicated to wonderful Eriikka Maalismaa.
