The Art of Collaboration


“The Art of Collaboration” is a concert of flute and canvas.

It’s an investigative partnership by flautist Iryna Gorkun-Silén and visual artist Aino Koski, exploring connections between music and visual art.

A one hour concert presents the flute in various instrumental combinations, while Aino Koski’s tandem performance improvises a 7-meter-long painting with brush strokes inspired by the music.

Part one of the performance premiered in 2019 in Musiikkitalo, the Helsinki Music Centre
