I'm Kupla (real name Lauri Achté). I was born in 1988 in Helsinki, Finland. I lived in London UK between 2013-2020, where I finished my MA in Sound Arts. Based in Helsinki again since 2020 with my wife and son.
I started playing the piano in 1995 when I was a kid, and studied classical music and jazz. My cousin introduced me to music production a few years later. "Kupla" first came to life in 2012 as a project to create music just for myself. Over the years the project grew, and the current sound developed.
Been working on music full time since 2017. Have done several album self-releases, albums and EPs with various labels as well as music and sound design for theater and dance. As an avid gamer, I'd love to compose for games too. If you have a project in the works where you feel my music would be fitting, don't hesitate to contact! Love all things music, arts and sound.
