In May 2017 I will present my newest kinetic sound installation "Sound Garden" during a solo exhibition at Oksasenkatu 11 in Helsinki. Currently I'm working on this project: studying, exploring, soldering, trial and error, discoveries...

At present I'm also developing the theatre play THE FAUST-EXPERIMENT. This multimedia theatre extravaganza will combine kinetic installations, acting, dance, robots and projections. This play, written by Tonio Kleinknecht (director of the City Theatre Aalen) and Marko Timlin, is a collaboration between City Theatre Aalen and University Aalen. It will be directed by Marko Timlin and premiered in October 2017 at the City Theater Aalen.

In September I gave a workshop about analog electronics and arduino microprocessors at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, Helsinki.

On Saturday, May 21st, I performed with the Sound-Disk-Machine at Pori Art Museum as part of the Abyss Festival.
The Sound-Disk-Machine is a self-made photoelectronic musical instrument converting light into sound.

On Friday, May 13th, I played a solo concert with the Sound-Disk-Machine at Kiasma - Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki. This performance was part of the Abyss Festival.

My large-scale kinetic sound installation "BITS AND BYTES" consisting of 104 floppy disk drives was exhibited from
1.4.-17.4. at Tampere Biennale 2016 in Rajatila gallery.

Marko Timlin is a Helsinki-based sound artist, composer, theatre director and musician. He creates sound installations, performs with self-made, sensor-based sound machines and contributes to theatre plays and dance productions.

Timlin employs technology in a highly poetic and austere way. His works are characterized by the imaginative, and often entirely alienated and distorted use of technology. Many of his musical instruments and sound installations consist of components not originally conceived for musical use or are made out of discarded elements, which he fished out of trash cans resurrecting them to a new artistic life. Timlin is convinced that the artistic application of technology is socially highly significant, as it may be exemplary for a peaceful and enriching coexistence between man and machine, rather than a dystopian, oppressive and dehumanizing one.
