Jukka Kääriäinen & Lauri Hyvärinen

Jukka Kääriäinen & Lauri Hyvärinen seek to deconstruct the traditionally imposed limits and roles of their instrument – the electric guitar. The duo improvise with jarring juxtapositions of timbres, navigating between open and predetermined structures that evolve spontaneously in-situ. Kääriäinen & Hyvärinen are experienced musicians in their own right, having delved into a multitude of forms of improvised and experimental music. They have performed together in various line-ups and also as part of the contemporary music ensemble Sähkökitarakvartetti. Jukka & Lauri recorded their first album at the turn of the year, which will be released later in 2024.
