Maverick accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen and sampling guru Samuli Kosminen join forces with Kronos Quartet in a stimulating and emotionally charged show around the concept of dreams.

With its lighting effects, surround sound and projections, Uniko opens up a multidimensional field of experience  reaching new emotional levels through the processing of expressive accordion and accordion samples with the electrified sound of the string quartet, together with electronic live loops and images.

Commissioned by Kronos Quartet, Kimmo Pohjonen and Samuli Kosminen composed Uniko over an eighteen month period before the Uniko World premiere in Helsinki in 2004.
