Sonic Decode´s music is composed, plus both structurally and non-structurally improvised music. The trio´s expression is multi-layered and points to multiple musical directions.
Sonic Decode mixes and combines its members unique styles in ruthlessly seducing ways. Raoul Björkenheim is known for his innovative use of extended guitar techniques, alternative tunings and for pioneering guitar tonalities. Drummer and percussion master Janne Tuomi performs everything from complex contemporary music to various styles of jazz, rock and ethnic music. With this trio, you can hear echoes of Zappa combined with the sound worlds of Oliver Méssiaen and the atmospheres of György Ligeti.
