On Sunday, 6 March at 4 pm, Aivar Tõnso will give a unique installative concert performance as part of the SOLO concert series at Tallinn Art Hall! The ticket revenue will be donated to support the people of Ukraine with the help of the Ukrainian Cultural Centre.

In recent years, musician and sound artist Aivar Tõnso has experimented with various surround sound solutions and sound amplifying materials, more often in exhibitions and installations, but on rare occasions also in concert performances. This time, the audience will have an exceptional opportunity to experience the latter. In his concert performance, Tõnso will use the see-through “quasi-speakers” custom-built for his recent exhibition, RESOmatic Still-Life. The moving of sounds in the six-channel sound system is facilitated through the surround sound mixer Linkispace 2, built by Timo Toots for the exhibition Garden of Branching Sounds displayed during the Üle Heli festival in 2021.

Aivar Tõnso is a musician, sound artist and curator of cross-disciplinary cultural events. As a musician, he is best known for his electronic music projects Hypnosaurus, Kulgurid and Kismabande. As a curator, his most important projects so far are the Hea Uus Heli festival and the record company Ulmeplaadid. Tõnso currently focuses on curating the Üle Heli festival. In the creative field, he has recently become increasingly interested in creating site-specific surround sound installations. He has explored the subject of surround sound at the Üle Heli festival, in his own creative projects as well as during his master’s studies at the Estonian Academy of Arts.

Most important sound projects of recent times:
2021 – exhibition RESOmatic Still-Life (Rapla County Centre for Contemporary Art)
2021 – exhibition Garden of Branching Sounds 2, with Raul Keller, Taavi Suisalu, Katrin Enni and Sten Saarits (ARS Project Space)
