Record release concert.

This concert launches Nathan Riki Thomson’s album Resonance, released by Siba Records. The term Resonance is explored as both a physical phenomenon and a metaphor for intercultural dialogue, connection, collaboration and identity. Taking inspiration from his five years spent in Africa and collaborations with musicians from diverse backgrounds, Thomson creates a border-crossing sonic landscape rich in colour, texture and rhythm. 

The concert also features live visuals created in real time from close up images of materials found in Finnish nature, resonating on a custom-built metal plate, filmed and projected as large-scale moving images.
