Innovation has always been a part of the Finns' soul. In my observation, it is not a slogan, but a real existence in daily life. Why is there such an atmosphere in a society? It wasn't until a Finn said, "In Finland, we don't care about authority, and there is no such thing as authority" that I started to understand a little bit. But no matter how many Finns think this sentence represents, this "disobedient" character provides me, a short-lived outsider, with an angle to observe Finns. Disobedience and disobedience are directly telemarketing list reflected in the experimental and bold creations, as well as the general acceptance of the society, and the reflection on traditional musical instruments is also impressive. In September 2017, Helsinki had an exhibition using "skateboards" as material for traditional Finnish musical instruments, a project that extends to many aspects: sports, experimental music, traditional instruments, and even artistic creation. Sambar meets reindeer This experimental instrument was initiated by luthier Juhana Nyrhinen. In 2012, he participated in the project of a skateboard company run by a friend, and gradually came up with the idea of using skateboards to make kantele. The production of skateboard kantele starts from the gluing of the panels of the skateboard until it is completed. It takes several weeks for a single skateboard kantele; the paintings on each skateboard are done by another artist.
