Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to a concert by newly-formed music collective Hidden Room on Tuesday 28.2 at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11)

The newly-formed music collective Hidden Room welcomes you to their very first concert; an atmospheric, elegiac reflection on the idea of End of time. Drawing influences from many traditions including ambient, folk, improvised & contemporary classical music, Hidden Room will take the audience on a meandering journey through an emotional landscape formed of music / sound & spoken word.


Warm regards,


Entrance is free but a donation of €3 (or more!) to fund the event is suggested and would be most welcome. If you have no loose change or coins we gladly accept payment via Visa Electron or Mastercard etc. !

About the collective :

‘In the heart of each human being there is a hidden room, a camera obscura, to which only the mind and dreams can find the door. A magic circle in which the world and the self are reconciled where every childish wish comes true. The passions flower there, brilliant, poisonous blossoms clinging to and thriving on air, thin air.’
– from ‘The Revolution of Everyday Life’ by Raoul Vaneigem

Formed in 2017, Hidden Room is a Helsinki-based music collective consisting of Aino Juutilainen (cellist / composer ), Vuokko Lahtinen (violist / composer) and Nick Martin (keyboardist / composer).

The aim of the collective is to ‘play’; They long for re-found innocence, childlike wonder, to be caught in the non-temporal (the doing). They consider ‘play’ to be the antithesis of ‘performance’ (the critiquing). Above all, they value subjective, ‘lived’ experiences in the present: being / playing / feeling / hearing / seeing / smelling / tasting / touching / thinking / remembering.
