Finnish people’s DNA is the most diverse in all of Europe. Extremes are literally in our blood. In honour of Finland’s centenary celebration, we’ll extract people’s DNA from the extreme points of the country. The Finnish cello metal band Apocalyptica will then turn the genetic data into an original piece of music.
The Symphony of Extremes premieres in late 2017.

Composer of the Symphony of Extremes is Eicca Toppinen.
Finnish DNA will be extracted from main regions of Finland. Each of them have their very own characteristics with distinctive roots. Watch the films:
