The visual artist and musician Jan Anderzén (1978–) is one of the central figures of the Finnish underground, and his band Kemialliset ystävät has gained international popularity among fans of experimental and psychedelic music. Anderzén has performed at Avanto in the past as a member of various bands and projects, but this edition of the festival introduces his solo project Tomutonttu. As Tomutonttu, Anderzén constructs surreal noise bursting with colour. Tomutonttu’s music has been released both domestically and internationally on audiocassette and vinyl by specialist labels such as Huutomerkki, Pohjoisten kukkasten äänet, Ultra Eczema and Imvated.
Avanto Club in Gloria on Saturday, 18 November, 9 pm to 3 am.
