Tin Man has always operated on the boundaries of the electronic music genre ACID; exploring those places where the sound is headed. Since ACID kicked off the explosion of abstract dance music in the 80s, it has always been first received with a mix of shock and titillation. Currently Tin Man is exploring the psychoacoustic spatial phenomena that are present in the current ACID sound.
Over the last decades Tin Man alias Johannes Auvinen has explored an ever evolving sound palette that touches on house, techno and ambient. Tin Man has been responsible for reinvigorating the acid scene with his unique and cerebral manipulations of real Roland 303s. His tracks have been laced with slow and subtly shifting patterns that are infused with a very real machine soul and exude captivating warmth. Tin Man plays live on 303s, 707s and plenty more bits of hardware, always creating textured soundtracks on the flying using a range of FX and skills built up over the last decade. Tin Man released the bulk of his Acid innovations on Acid Test. His extensive discography also explores less sublime and seductive sounds on various labels. He is also part of The Acid Symphony Orchestra (a live super group that features artists playing on ten 303, 707 and 808) and has turned out a standalone neo-classical and ambient works like Vienna Blue and Akkosaari which prove he does so much more than pure dancing music.
