Savikangas, Max 




Max Savikangas (b. 1969), M.Mus., composer and violist has composed 100 works of instrumental chamber music, orchestral music, vocal music, electroacoustic music and combinations of these. As violist and founder member of the Helsinki based Uusinta Ensemble and the Uusinta String Quartet Max concentrates mostly in performing contemporary music. In addition to composing and performing on the viola, Max has been involved in multi-disciplinary artistic co-projects, often utilising new technology. Max is member of the Society of Finnish Composers and the interdisciplinary artist association MUU. He was appoined as honorary member of the Finnish Viola Society having served as the President 2008–2013 and has been appointed as the executive secretary of the International Viola Society Presidency for the terms 2008-2011 and 2011-2014. 

Max writes: “I enjoy contemporary music with its constantly renewing challenges, improvising on the Viola and listening with wonder to the world’s sounds. As a composer-musician I have wanted to expand the means of expression of my own instrument with new playing techniques and experimental live-electronics, which has led to studying these possibilities of other instruments as well. In my opinion, timbre in contemporary music should be understood as an umbrella term, covering all components of a sound event. At best, different timbres produced with extended palying techniques are by no means effects or seasoning added afterwards to the music, but they are an organic and sensual part of expression.”
