In the field of free improvised music Gnomus has developed an approach which is unique, captivating and full of surprises, even for the band. The electric instrumentation of keyboards, guitar and drums alone sets Gnomus apart from most other groups. However, it is the organic and controlled development of imaginative, even anarchistic ideas that make Gnomus a band that ”again proves to be pushing at new frontiers and breaking them” (from a cd review in Audion magazine).
Since the Helsinki debut concert in December 1998 Gnomus has played dozens of improvised concerts in Finland, Germany and most notably in France, where the group has appeared at the Grenoble, Amiens and Nantes jazz festivals. Although Gnomus plays mainly as a trio, it has performed on few occasions with the Hammond organ genius Jukka Gustavson, and in Amiens with the string orchestra of the local conservatoire
