My studies at the DocMus department of the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki, started in the year 2014, and I am aiming to obtain a doctor’s degree in perfomance. In this study, I concentrate in early 17th century music and its emotional expressivity (affects or passions). The main interest is in the Italian music of the seconda pratica and the bodily basis of the passions. The study consists of a series of four concerts a recording and a written part. My concert series includes different experiments on combining the affects of 17th-century music in cooperation with contemporary art forms. The series introduces contemporary dance, electronics, and new compositions.
