This series intends to highlight and support experimentalism in music, sound and performance art in Helsinki, as well as it offers to the artists the possibility to share their work and to interact with other artists in situ.

Korvat Auki Ensemble is a group performing improvised and experimental music. The ensemble was founded in Spring 2013 by members of Korvat auki (”Ears Open”), a Society of young Finland-based composers, striving to find a path towards an all-encompassing way of enacting one’s musicianship and exploration of limits beyond conventionality.


From February to July 2020 the artistic organisations Interkult, Museum of Impossible Forms, Catalysti Association of Transcultural Artists and Korvat Auki Ensemble, together with the Sibelius Academy and the Laponia Improvisations school, merge forces to produce the Helsinki Experimental Series: A performative/listening experience. Within the main aspects outlining the curatorial process of the series are: Improvisation, music genre and art aesthetics diversity, and re-thinking paradigms of expertise. Each performance of the serie is produced in pairs, namely by Interkult and other organisation/institution that operates or suggests a specific location in Helsinki. This enables and encourages the audience to also experience different urban landscapes and to decentralise art spaces in the city.

Helsinki Experimental Series is curated by Sergio Castrillón
