Jääportit – frostbitten music and atmospheric sounds from Northern Finland
Jääportit was originally formed by Tuomas M. Mäkelä in 1997. One man music project works somewhere in between genres like frosty ambient, darkwave, experimental electronica and post-rock using both synthetic and natural sounds. Tuomas deals with the guitars, keyboards, synthesizers, composing and producing the music.
The name Jääportit is written in Finnish language and could be translated in English as The Gates of Ice or The Frostportals. All album and track titles are written in Finnish too.
