Ahti & Ahti are Marja Ahti and Niko-Matti Ahti. The duo combines field recordings and electronic sound into their own blend of musique concrète. Recordings of rooms, outdoor events, creatures and objects are carefully aligned in an associative way. On stage Ahti & Ahti spin multiple threads of electronic and acoustic sound utilizing different objects, effects and modular synthesizer.
They have both made music for a long time in different constellations, but this is their first work as a duo. Apart from making sound, they are part of the Himera work group organizing shows and a yearly festival in Turku on the Finnish west coast. Ahti & Ahti’s first album will be released in 2018.
