Jarkko has been composing music electronically from early 1999. He has
explored sounds from electronica to orchestral, from chill-out and down-tempo to
game and cinematic music. The possibility to experience different genres and to
try all sorts of new and old things in his music is too fascinating for him to
pass, so it can't be said he'd have any certain favorite style of music he loves
to compose. Some might still say Jarkko has a certain sound to him.
At one point Jarkko composed a lot of single demo songs to be released free
online. During this time he founded his largest musical project,
"Yasahi". As "Yasahi" or "Yasahimusic" the exploration of the realms of
electronica, experimental and most importantly ambient became very important to
him. And it so happened that electronic ambient was eventually the genre to push
him towards more film and game-like sounds.
Later Jarkko applied to study sound in an academy focusing on TV and film, and
took the chance to dedicate himself fully to sound and music. During these
studies he received offers for short film and advertisement scoring. This had a
huge influence in helping Jarkko realize this was the kind of thing he really
wanted to do in his life. Since then he has been composing for variety of
projects such as a feature film, short films, mini series, games, advertisements,
corporate videos and trailers. He has also had the pleasure of working as a
sound designer on various of such projects.
While continuing to experiment with new sounds in his music, he always actively
seeks new projects to work on. Most recent events were the signing of various of
his tracks to Magnatune and Bonaire Media as well as starting on the score of a
feature film and two mini series.
