Sockskewer Street 8 awarded for Best Sound
on Fantoche, Switzerland

The animated short film "Sockskewer Street 8" by Elli Vuorinen was awarded for Best Sound on Fantoche animated film festival in Baden, Switzerland. The music and sound design were both made by Jani Lehto. The next change to see the film is Rakkautta & Anarkiaa film festival in Helsinki, Finland.

:

Jani Lehto was born in 1978 in Turku, Finland . In the dawn of the 90s Jani already knew that he wanted to spend the rest of his life in front of big mixing consoles, making things sound the way he wanted.

In 1995 electronic music scene flourished in Finland and Jani made his first tracks that later found their way on a record – 12 inch vinyl of course. Music was deep and names were complicated: Deep Sensuous Collective made several EPs and one album. The oldest track on the listening page of this site – a Thomas Dolby cover song “I Love You Goodbye”, released in 2001 – is an example from those days that has stood the test of time.

One outcome of the deep house period was Sound Production Company Lehto & Tuppurainen that was founded in 2002. Jani and his long-time confederate Pekka Tuppurainen formed a company that was a home for their musical projects for 8 years. Besides hosting the art of it’s owners – bands and also record labels Stars-music and Ilma Records – the company did advertising music and sound design, also for some of the better known Finnish and international brands like Elisa, Ingman, Pinotex, Pepsi Max and Red Cross.

In the turn of the millennium Jani had started a new band with the Finnish electro icon Mr Velcro Fastener‘s Tatu Metsätähti. The name was Star You Star Me and the sound of the new-born millennium was electronic but warm, analog but of the highest fidelity. British and German electronic music magazines did five star reviews, collaboration “A Place In My Heart” with Erlend Øye was the track of the week on the Finnish national radio YleX and the song also appeared on a Sony Playstation game soundtrack. Live gigs were performed in USA, Europe and Russia. There was also another well-received band called Déclassé which in the course of time gave more opportunities to Jani to delve into tradional pop songwriting.

After 2010 Jani has been working with anew band called Sans Parade, has taken part in several sound and video art projects and has started a new company. Jani Lehto Audio Works offers music production and sound design services, trained by the years of experience and perfected by the love of sound and the love of music.
