Defunensemble explores the relationship between the current digital age and the tradition of classical music.

Formed in 2009, Defunensemble has astonishingly fast established itself as one of the most important contemporary musicgroups in Finland. Defunensemble gives premieres of the most essential electroacoustic repertoire both classic and current, while simultaneously actively commissioning new works incorporating the latest technologies. The musicians and sound designers of defunensemble are some of the most active personalities in the Finnish contemporary music scene. The album 'Hyperrealistic Songs' includes works commissioned and premiered by the group from composers Christian Winther Christensen, Asta Hyvärinen, Hikari Kiyama, Sami Klemola and Perttu Haapanen.

The album's works reflect on the relationship between the current digital age and the tradition of classical music. The use of electronics as part of instrumentation expands the sound image in many different directions and blurs the boundaries of different genres of experimental music. The compositions form a line in which synthetic sounds, as well as intimate subtle sounds, meet crackling and dense masses of noise. The whole is a picture of the rugged and barren (sound) world in which we live. Not forgetting, however, the playful optimism and the strong knowledge of music tradition with its architectural foundations.
