Antti Auvinen's Beneath for wind quintet (2007) was a commission by the quintet Arktinen hysteria. The work was premiered during the Musiikkia Paanukirkossa festival, at Kärsämäki church, 13 July 2007.
In the music of Antti Auvinen (b. 1974), a modernist compositional language is fused with a powerful sense of drama and a charged intensity generated through the explosive clash of conflicting tensions. Auvinen's soundworld is multifaceted and employs unusual combinations of instruments and a wide variety of modern, often rough and noisy extended techniques. His rich and expressive use of rhythms extends from the meditative stasis of freely notated fields to the edgy, insistent energy of multiple superimposed rhythmic layers.
