Programme Note

In my music I am usually more or less comfortable operating within the constraints of the traditional division of the octave into 12 tones. However, every now and then, I have the urge to write a piece of music by not using traditional pitches. 'Balloon Work' is a good example of this. :: Tomi Räisänen, 2016
