Liina “LNA” Turtonen is a songwriter, music producer and a performer. In her music she’s interested of the worlds between electronic sounds and authenticity, as well as the contrasts between genres, languages and cultures. For LNA, music and technology are the playground of endless possibilities for exploring storytelling and creativity. Being a woman in studio environment is never simple, either as a songwriter or an engineer. The glass sealing is always there, even if not as clear for many, planting the seed of doubt into minds of women believing that they will never be as good as others, especially men. In her career, the hardest part, has been and will be, believing in her skills and proving to others that she is competent.
I am extremely excited to find new inspiration for music making, after concentrating only on the details of audio engineering for couple of years. This residency seems like the perfect opportunity to take a break from the regular production work and concentrate on my personal creativity and artistic development, something I really need to revalue and find again in this stage of my life.
