Jonna Karanka(1978–), an artist active in sound art as well as the visual arts, will perform at the Avanto/Potlatch Club as Kuupuu. Karanka has sometimes taken to the stage as a member of Avarus, but over the recent years she has focused her creative energies into her solo project. Using a variety of effect pedals, Karanka constructs luxurious webs of tone and timbre out of repetitive sound elements. The blending of formal and half-improvised elements in her music has been widely praised for its precision. Karanka released her music initially in the form of tapes and CD-Rs, but the sounds have since then found their way to vinyl records released by labels such as Time-Lag and Dekorder. As Kuupuu, Karanka has toured the United States and the United Kingdom. She is also one of the founding members of the bands Kukkiva poliisi and Hertta Lussu Ässä.
