Kimmo Pohjonen’s Soundbreaker documentary will be exclusively shown on 31 Oct 13 at Kings Place, as part of LIFEM: London International Festival of Exploratory Music.
Breaking the rules, tampering with the bellows, adding electronic devices, sampling noises of animals and earth machines, he pushes sound to its extremes and shatters everything you know about the accordion. Kimmo Koskela tells the story with sparse words. His creative approach and breathtaking images give a deep understanding of the inner struggle of this exceptional artist and convey the spirit and feelings of a Scandinavian country. Music composed and performed by Kimmo Pohjonen, with Samuli Kosminen, Timo Kämäräinen, Sami Kuoppamäki, Trey Gunn & Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson) and Kronos Quartet.
