Jääportit was founded by Tuomas in Northern Finland in the fall of 1997.
This one man music project works somewhere in between genres like frosty ambient, darkwave, experimental electronica and post-rockusing both synthetic and natural sounds to create cold melancholic atmospheres for desolate forests and frosty dreamlike realms.
Tuomas solely deals with the guitars, keyboards and synthesizers to compose and produce the music. During the years five full-length albums and single tracks on various compilation albums has been released. Latest album Jääportit was released at February 8th, 2018.
New single was released at August 2022.
