Together with sound artist Juhani Liimatainen, we create a scenery of everyday and mythological birds, like sparrow, great tit, starling, pigeon, seagull, swan, eagle owl, raven, loon, cuckoo, phoenix, and Tux penguin. Jussi plays synthesizers, me my voice, and we talk a bit, too. And we dress in feathers. The concert lasts 30-40 minutes. We performed it the first time at Kone Foundation’s Saari Residency on 26 May, and the second time happened at New Performance Turku on 22 September, 2018. On 29 January, 2019, we performed Winterbird Concert at Lavaklubi, Helsinki.
