Tommi Grönlund in collaboration with Petteri Nisunen is also participating in the exhibition yet is also well known as a DJ and manager of the Finnish label ”Sähkö Recordings”, that has published records by, among others, Pan Sonic and Jimi Tenor.

„SKAN II”, organized by the Skanu Mezs association for adventurous music and related arts, focuses on presenting latest developments in sound art as well as directly and indirectly linking this form of art to the neglected historical wooden architecture of the area where the exhibiton takes place. The second part of this exhibition will run from July, the 1st, until July, the 20th, and its main location is the the Botanical Garden of the University of Latvia, therefore presenting an exciting synthesis of sound art, architecture, urban environment and nature – works will be exhibited throughout the whole territory of the garden.
