Ahti & Ahti are Marja Ahti and Niko-Matti Ahti. The duo combines field recordings with electronic and acoustic sound into their own blend of musique concrète. Recordings of spaces and events, creatures and objects are carefully aligned in an associative way. In concert Ahti & Ahti spin threads of sound utilizing pre-recorded material, amplified items and modular synthesizer.
They have both made music for a long time in different constellations and are part of the Himera work group organizing concerts in Turku, Finland. Ahti & Ahti’s first album Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear? will be released in April 2019.
Support from Tyneside Sounds Society and Signals head honcho Michael McHugh who'll be taking you on a deep listening ride through global field/sound recordings, oddities and tracks from the far lung reaches.
****PLEASE NOTE THAT AHTI & AHTI WILL BE PERFORMING PROMPT AT 8.30PM***
