Superposition is the new creative quartet led by Helsinki-based drummer/composer Olavi Louhivuori. The band features some of the most ear-worthy musical talent in the buzzing Finnish scene in saxophonists Linda Fredriksson and Adele Sauros, plus bassist Mikael Saastamoinen. Superposition might be inspired by quantum physics but their music is a truest form of contemporary jazz, meaning that they’re reaching for the next unknown at all times. At times venturing far “out”, at times locking into a hard groove, Superposition never fails to surprise. This is raw, unfiltered original music, no physics course required.
Superposition’s debut album was released in March 2020. The groundwork for their first album was laid with gigs at clubs and festivals in 2019, such as Pori Jazz in Finland – a concert which was also broadcasted on Finnish national television. The group is expected to be one of the major new names to emerge from the Finnish scene this year.
