Gnomus is an extraordinary Finnish group that plays experimental improvised music. The trio, formed in 1998, consists of Kari Ikonen (keyboards), Mika Kallio (drums) and Esa Onttonen (guitars). As opposed to playing pre-composed pieces the music of Gnomus shapes itself during the performance. The music evolves according to the environment and exploits the advantages of acoustics. Listener may notice features from such musical phenomena as ambient, free jazz, radiophony, modalism and cacophony.
