“well detailed harmony, counterpoint and strong expressionism.”
Antti Myllyoja is a Finnish composer and pianist (b.1981). Typical elements for his music are well detailed harmony, counterpoint and strong expressionism. Inspiration for his music is usually coming from contemporary art, literature and nature. Recent years Myllyoja has been working with many Taiwanese artists from different fields such as theater, film, fine arts and dance. In 2012 he founded Radical Snail Office theater with actress and director Yutsen Liu. This was a starting point for his cross-arts collaborations.
Antti Myllyoja 是位芬蘭籍的作曲家和鋼琴家(1981年生)。他的作品範例經常可以感受到細緻和聲、對位和極致的表現主義。他的創作靈感通常來自於當代藝術、文學和自然。近年，Myllyoja嘗試和許多台灣不同領域的藝術家合作，他們分別來自劇場、電影、美術和舞蹈等。2012年他和兼具演員、導演身分的劉郁岑共同成立基進蝸牛辦公室，這是Myllyoja跨藝術合作的起始點。
Elements of Taste | 《滋味的組成》
Elements of Taste is a musical expedition to find out what creates a good taste. Maybe we can discover some answers from four classical elements: water, soil, fire and air. This piece continues Myllyoja’s collaborations with other art forms. Welcome to experience what happens this time when he meets master baker Juha Mäkelä on stage.

The story of Taipei City-Passenger for zheng, pipa and liuqing trio
“In the city, out in the streets, a crossroad, a passenger passing by, you or me perhaps, and to you and me, to all of us belongs our own story. Even if only the future knows how the story will end, we need not pursue the destiny aimlessly, but rather live in the immediate reality… because that alone is life.”
– This piece is dedicated to You who share the Taipei-life.
This piece experiments with passing through rhythms and tone color variations to portray a busy scenery of the metropolis. The piece is divided into three sections:
1. Order | 秩序
Different cities have different rules. Taipei also has its invisible rules which we quietly follow, guided by our subconsciousness and are often unaware of. There are those who have to wear a mask due to circumstances they are in, thus being compliant to the rules.
2. Dialogue | 對話
People in cities have certain general characteristics they all share. In another person, one can often see a place which resonates to one self. Different times and spaces bring quietly about concealed dialogues and exchanges.
3. Touching bodies | 擦身
Everyday, how many times does your body touch someone else’s? And in that moment when the bodies touch, have you noticed him or her from earlier. The moment of touching bodies is intriguing: in a parallel time and space, this tranquil moment will intersect and you, who lives in that moment, has definitely experienced it before.
