How Writer’s Block Feeds Your Creativity
As a professional individual working in a creative field - and tackling deadlines almost on a daily basis - a composer and sound designer faces numerous challenges despite their preparations, seamless workflows and perfectly employed workstations. BAFTA nominated music artist, composer and producer Petri Alanko (aka Lowland), whose critically acclaimed scores include Remedy Entertainment’s Quantum Break and Alan Wake, will discuss his techniques for overcoming and embracing writer’s block on undisclosed future projects, including his application of channeling methodologies similar to neuro-linguistic programming and mentalism.

Petri Alanko (aka Lowland) is a BAFTA nominated Finnish composer, musician and producer. His dynamic repertoire ranges from the haunting orchestral/electronic score for Remedy Entertainment’s psycho-thriller, Alan Wake, to elegant and sophisticated classical arrangements for Imaginaerum The Movie, based on the album by symphonic metal band Nightwish. His latest opus is the epic and emotional electronic sci-fi score for Remedy’s next cinematic blockbuster, Quantum Break.As an artist and performer, Alanko has toured extensively with popular Finnish bands, recorded two critically acclaimed albums Classical Trancelations 1 and 2 under his Lowland moniker, created special remixes (such as Armin van Buuren’s “Embrace” classical mix), and has collaborated with DJ Orkidea on his albums Metaverse, 20 and Harmonia, as well as their numerous joint production remixes. Recently Alanko’s concerts included “Classical Trancelations In Concert” performances, two groundbreaking sold-out-in-a-flash events of electronic dance music and trance classics with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and Ahjo Choir, along with special guest vocalists (MARiANNA, Paleface, Sami Uotila) and saxophonist Tapani Rinne (of Rinneradio). The concerts were part of the Helsinki Festival at Helsinki Music House, in August 26th, 2016. Music media all over the world noticed this special performance.
