Veli-Matti Puumala has noted: “I don’t believe in the gradual evolution of expression; I want to keep several pathways open at once.” In addition to Modernism, his music contains a variety of elements. He has explored pulse rhythms, folk music quotes and acoustic innovations in sonority. Recently, he has been using sub-divisions and the spatial dimension in his orchestral writing. He is currently Professor of Composition at the Sibelius Academy.
