New biography by Andrew Mellor

Frank Zappa once said that a composer is ‘a guy who goes around forcing his will on unsuspecting air molecules with the assistance of unsuspecting musicians.’ Olli Virtaperko’s career so far appears to bear that phrase out, and in a good way. His creative journey has been marked out by its ability to surprise – not just air molecules but other human beings – and its strong sense of collaboration with musicians and music professionals from a whole range of genres and disciplines.
