M.A. Numminen


Mauri Antero Numminen (Somero, Finland, born March 12, 1940) has been one of the pioneers of Finnish avantgarde/underground & electronic music scene. In his early days Numminen often consciously tried to provoke people. Here he succeeded well, for example by his interpretations of Franz Schubert's lieds, sung with his own idiosyncratic singing voice, or managing to create a scandal at the Jyväskylän kesä festival of Jyväskylä in 1966 with his song lyrics taken from a sex guide.
