Art ↔ communication

I believe language and creativity are pillars of the human spirit. Translation, poetry, painting, collage, performance; I work from and within all these avenues of expression.

I create quality translations in
English and Finnish

 

”Kasper worked very quickly, and the style in which he translated our book about [Teerenpeli] whiskey was spot on. The text came out great!”

“Thanks to his background as a poet, Kasper has an extraordinary grasp on language and the ability to comprehend visuality in his translations. He is also well-versed in the concepts and terminology of visual art. Working with him is a joy, because he communicates with presence and positivity.”

Salosen esiintymistekniikka on hiottua, urheilullisen vikkelää ja ketterää. Hän ei myöskään tee lavalle tieten tahtoen helppoa materiaalia. Salosen runoiljantaipale on seuraamisen arvoinen, sillä hän saattaa olla ensimmäinen tekstuaalisesti erittäin kunnianhimoinen suomalaisrunoilija (tosin kaksikielinen), jonka tuotantoa määrittelee lava

I dream in two languages. (And proof copy, too).

One of my life’s missions is to translate, speak, write, perform, and teach language in all its forms; specifically in Finnish and English. I am versatile in both, due to my bilingual proficiency and many years’ experience in multiple industries and on hundreds of live stages. Read on!

Hartaan runollisia tunnelmia 💗🎤🕉 Keikka meni aivan silmänräpäyksessä, oli niin hauskaa ja transsista 😊🏵 Ihmiset eläytyivät hienosti, monet varmasti ensikertalaisia lavarunouden äärellä. Ja kirjankin möin. Kiitos tuhannesti <3 Ja Henna-Marille dokumentaatiosta!Oon myös alkanut ottaa tavaksi vierailla reissuillani paikallisissa kirkoissa, ja meditoida siellä, sytyttää kynttilän. Jokseenkin panteistisena pidän monenlaisia paikkoja pyhinä; kirkoissa dogmit väistyvät mulla ns. yleispyhyyden tieltä. Niiden miljööt ja rauha ja symbolit puhuttelevat, ja antavat tilaisuuden eläytyä henkeen/hetkeen. Joensuun luterilainen kirkko on kattodekottu luontomotiivein, tuntui kuin olisin ollut hiljaisessa, kaikuvassa metsässä 🌲🌟 Runous/Rukous.---Devout poetic feels 🕉🎤💗 My gig at Ilosaarirock went by super quickly, it was so wonderful and trancelike 🏵😊 The audience felt very present and aware, many of them first-timers in spoken word. I also sold one of my books. Thanks a million <3I've also started a habit of visiting local churches in my travels, and meditating in them, lighting a candle. As a fairly pantheistic (non-denominational) person I consider all kinds of places to be holy in some way; in church the dogma fades into more general experiences of sanctity. Their surroundings and sense of peace and the symbolism all speak to me, and provide me the opportunity to lose/find myself in the spirit of the moment. Joensuu's Lutheran church is decorated with nature motifs, and it felt like I was praying in a quiet, echoing forest 🌟🌲 Poem/Prayer ... See MoreSee Less
