The Complaint Choir of Helsinki

The Complaints Choir of Helsinki

This is one performance I would definitely pay to see. Finnish artists Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen asked residents of Helsinki for their pet peeves (everything from annoying ring tones to people on the bus who smell). The work was then performed by the aptly named Complaint Choir of Helsinki. Check them out on this YouTube video.

it originally came from birmingham in england.

they played the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2w84qzHdEms) at kiasma (the modern art museum here in helsinki) a year or so ago and then shortly afterwards organised a finnish version (if i remember correctly).
