SolarDuo Project
by Koray Tahiroglu and Joni Lyytikainen (TR/FIN)

Koray Tahiroglu is a sound artist, grew up in Istanbul and moved to Helsinki in 2000 to study at Media Lab UIAH. At the moment, within the same institution, he is doing a research on modeling human observable musical activity. He is experimenting on creating possible environments for generative musical improvisation with experimental musical instruments and interactive systems that give a possibility for audience to participate in an act of improvisation. Composing and performing electro-acoustic noise music has been a junction point for all of his interests in contemporary art.

Joni Lyytikainen is a sound artist and freelance graphic designer living in Helsinki. He has a BA in Fine Arts from Institute of Fine Art, Lahti. Currently he is studying his MA degree in New Media at University on Art and Design, Helsinki. His interest in sound and his musical experience has lead the way into electro-acoustic music and searching for new ways for musical creation in sonification of abstract data.
