Marja Ahti is a composer and sound artist based in Turku, Finland. Ahti works with acoustic sound material combined with synthesizers and electronic feedback in order to find the moments where sounds start to mutate, mimic each other or communicate. She makes music that moves in associative patterns of mutating textures and warping harmonies – rough edged compositions that are rich in detail. Ahti has been working under the moniker Tsembla for almost a decade and recently in her own name. She also works as a duo, Ahti & Ahti, with her partner Niko-Matti Ahti, and as an organizer in the Himera work group.
Entering a Cloud draws inspiration from cycles of liquid in the atmosphere and in the body. Trickling, running, seeping, evaporating, crystallizing, melting, coagulating, gathering mass and carrying resonance. At the base of the cloud, vision is limited. The mountain carries and climbs.
