Dear friends! Our debut album will be released next week! On 25th of May, on the same day that the album will be out, we will celebrate the event at Tenho Restobar, Helsinki, by playing a full night gig. Come and bring all your friends too, this will be a night to remember!
Lots of everything has happened during the past weeks; for example we had the joy of performing at Svenska Kulturfonden’s gala night at Logomo Arena, Turku, couple of weeks ago. Thank you Svenska kulturfonden and all the lovely people we got to meet on that very special day.
So people. See you soon? We are very happy to publish the very first Finnish soundpainting album and we are quite excited to be performing again in Helsinki – our home.

Great news, friends!
Helsinki Soundpainting Ensemble’s first album was recorded during the steamy hot summer of 2015 in Helsinki city.
HSE had the priviledge of using Helsinki Music Hall’s studio for a whole week of sessions. Recording days were spent in a very inspired atmosphere and the experience of improvising as a group for many days, in studio conditions, was a wonderful one!
Long, fun days.
Album was recorded and will be mixed by Jaakko Kulomaa and the release date will land on the beginning side of year 2016. Mastering is also in good hands.
The ensemble is now finalising the album with the sound engineering and mastering team. Many exciting things to look forward to.
Thank you for your support! Stay tuned!
