Biography

Niko Skorpio is a Finnish artist who works on both sides of the border between sound and visual art. Whether it’s music, painting, sound art, photography or graphic design, he’s interested in exploring unlikely unions of polar opposites. Fusions of contradictory elements create tension that questions what we perceive as familiar, comfortable and accepted, and attempts to reveal new dimensions of thought and perception. Inspired by all things unknown, forgotten, abandoned or obsolete, Skorpio’s work often attempts to invoke the sensation of something breaking apart to reveal some underlying structures and ideas that make up the world as we perceive it. Abstract truths behind the illusory reality.

Skorpio began his artistic career as a teenager in the seminal metal band Thergothon (1990-1993), followed by another short-lived band that subsequently earned cult status, This Empty Flow (1994-1996). At the same time his interest in experimental and electronic music was taking over and soon he decided to leave behind the bands and focus entirely on his own creative work.

In 1997, Skorpio formed Some Place Else, an independent record label to produce and realize his creations, as well as work by like-minded artists from the experimental underground. Skorpio’s debut album was Grey Bloom , released on Some Place Else in 1998. A rare live performance of this “power ambient” sound was held in Turku, Finland on Halloween that year.
