Biography

The joint-project of jazz musician-poet Hanna Toivonen and tech-futurist producer Tommi Toivonen, Phantom craft cinematic, jazz-influenced trip-hop and dark experimentalist glitch-pop-electronica haunted by past and future lives. Formed in 2012, Phantom funnel their existence in the time-space-continuum into something of a new media spiced black magic.

To enhance the sonic experience, Tommi has built multi-dimensional technology dubbed The UFO (Ultrasonic Frequency Oscillator) into their studio/lab, with which you play by flailing your hands above the flying saucer-looking midi-controller, and debuted the real time visual projection software Z Vector using Kinect cameras and audio data for live performances.
