Blending the rebellious spirit of DIY punk rock with the atmospheric allure of electronica, Ilari Heinilä is a musical artisan whose sound defies conventions. His most recent film, "Sebastian" (directed by the critically acclaimed Mikko Mäkelä), premiered at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival. Collaborating with Will Quiney's trailer house, Acid, Ilari has secured placements in notable projects, including a TV spot for Martin Scorsese's film, "Killers of the Flower Moon.”

Describing his music as "organic electronica,” he plays with the duality of organic sounds and electronic production techniques. The outcome is a sonically adventurous and richly textured tapestry, capturing the essence of a musical journey with seamless artistry.

Besides music and sound, Ilari is passionate about tattoos and sailing.
