Mar­ja Ahti (b. 1981) is a Swedish-Finnish com­pos­er and sound artist based in Turku, Fin­land. Ahti works with field record­ings and oth­er acoustic sound mate­r­i­al com­bined with syn­the­siz­ers and elec­tron­ic feed­back in order to find the space where these sounds start to com­mu­ni­cate. She makes music that rides on waves of slow­ly warp­ing har­monies and mutat­ing tex­tures – rough edged, yet pre­cise com­po­si­tions, rich in detail. Ahti has pre­sent­ed her music in many dif­fer­ent con­texts around Europe, in Japan and the Unit­ed States. She is cur­rent­ly active in the duo Ahti & Ahti with her part­ner Niko-Mat­ti Ahti and in the artist/​organizer col­lec­tive Himera.


Forces restrained by lim­its – like rip­ples in a water buck­et, fire in a bar­rel, a broom on a coarse floor, air through a hose or a whis­per in a jar.
