Improv Session XI: JuanFran Cabrera and Sirpa Jokinen

The Museum of Impossible Forms M{if} continues the improvisation and experimental music sessions in 2019, where seasoned local and international improvisors meet up on the stage of M{if} in Kontula creating unique performances. The event continues with our regular practice of 'Blind Date Jamming', where members of the audience may ask other audience members and/or the invited guests for the opportunity to "jam" or play a short improvised piece together.

For Improv Session XI, Juan Fran Cabrera and Sirpa Jokinen combine analogue and electronic diciplines for a unique improvisation performance.

Juan Fran Cabrera plays the violin, prepared violin and flute. Furthermore, within his improvisational career, he includes visual, performance and sonic art. Cabrera’s versatility, multidisciplinarity, and interest in different music genres allow him to keep an active and broad artistic career not only within academic scopes but also in more underground arenas.

Sirpa Jokinen creates her own electronic-noise-instruments/generators out of particular recycled objects and materials, such as suitcases and electronic trash. On the other hand, she incorporates in her set up keyboards and prerecorded sources. Currently, Jokinen combines her background in visual arts with sound art and music, within diverse collaborative and pedagogical art projects.
