How does the beginning of apocalypse sound like, the short moment when only grannies and seagulls are alive?

AINON leads the listener on a journey trough time and space, creating strong pictures that one can stop by. It creaks and floats until all of a sudden begins a rhythmical texture that one can cling to.

AINON is Helsinki based ensemble that was founded in 2017 by the cellist-composer Aino Juutilainen. The music is influenced by jazz, contemporary music and classical music. It is a mixture of composed and improvised music, all written for these specific players. AINON combines different styles associating freely and reaches the listener with its playfulness. Despite the short history of the band AINON has got very good feedback about the sound, energy and the ability to transform.
