Hynninen’s work encompasses performance and installation. He has collaborated to theatre and dance productions as a lighting designer, as well as a composer and sound designer. Outside of the stage, his work moves between architectural and virtual enviroments.
His latest theatrical solo works are stage performances that use sound as their primary material.These include Alphabets, a composition for the Helsinki Computer Orchestra employing twenty-nine laptop performers, Fantasy#1 for a Pornstar, a monologue for retired pornstar, and Theatre#_, a site-specific performance for empty theatre spaces.
