On Monday November 13, Visit Finland hosted the world premiere of The Symphony of Extremes, in Helsinki. The Symphony of Extremes is a unique new piece composed from Finnish DNA sequences, by Eicca Toppinen, from the cello metal band Apocalyptica, in honor of Finland’s centenary celebration. The song and its accompanying video fuse art, science and travel in a completely new way, emphasizing the Finnish mindset and the land’s strong contrasts.
Parts of the music video images are from Visit Finland’s past productions by Otto Films (directed by Pekka Hara).
