The artist duo Pink Twins, ie. Jusu and Vesa Vehviläinen, combines electronic music, visual and video art and digital techniques in their works. Their large, psychedelic video installations and dazzling live performances have conquered art galleries and music festivals all over the world. The duo’s electronic music has ties to noise, dub and psychedelia – and now also to jazz, when the duo performs alongside the 18 men strong UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and their impressive sounds.

Angelo Badalamenti’s and David Lynch’s legendary themes from Twin Peaks, such as Laura Palmer’s Theme and Falling, come to life in brand new arrangements for big band and electronics. Contrasting elements confront each other and elements collide as the electronic duo is expanded with an acoustic big band – or the other way round! The arrangements are made by Mikko Hassinen and Ed Partyka who also conducts the orchestra. Kadi Vija performs as guest vocalist.

The video animations for this concert, inspired by the themes of Twin Peaks, are of course made by Pink Twins.

Please note that some of the video animations contain strong, flickering lights and patterns that can trigger a migraine or epileptic seizure.

“A multidimensional experience.” Jazzrytmit.fi

“The concert was amazing and the soloists took my breath away.” Customer feedback
