Media artist Jukka Hautamäki (b. 1971), born in Oulu, lives and works in Helsinki, Finland. Hautamäki works with found materials, electronics, sound and video.
Hautamäki’s sound performances are microscopic studies into electronic sound. His live setup consists of DIY instruments, which he manipulates in real time by changing components and reconnecting circuits. The relationship between performativity and sound plays a significant role in the live performances. Hautamäki’s music could be described as abstract ambient noise with a twist.
Hautamäki has performed live in Europe and North America. Performance venues include La-bas Biennale in Helsinki, Ges21 in St. Petersburg, Avatar Centre in Quebec City, Madame Claude in Berlin and Music Hackspace in London and he has kept interactive sound art and electronics workshops in Finland (MUU, Aalto University, Mansedanse…), Germany, Poland and Estonia. He has also worked as a sound designer for animations and short films. These works have been featured in Finnish national tv, film festivals and art museums.
