TRAPPN#81: Tuomas Toivonen
Tuomas Toivonen – “New Utopia”
In “Baldessari Sings LeWitt,” the artist remarks that he “think[s] these sentences have been hidden for too long … and perhaps by my singing them for you, it will bring these sentences to a much larger public.” How very resonant now that Finnish architect Tuomas Toivonen has decided to use electronic music as the basis for spreading his ideas on architectural theory. I think people often underestimate the educational power of music. His work, specifically this track “New Utopia”, seems appropriate following my previous post on the utopian work of Etienne Louis Boullée.
