I am Antton Puonti, hand musician and the winner of Finland’s Got Talent 2016 competition. My peculiar skill is to make a noise with my hands by forming an air pressure between them. Those with a sense of humour may call it music. You can see me play here.
I managed to produce the first fart noises with my “instrument” at the age of five but it has taken a lot of practise to make those trumpet-like-sounds and to really play notes – and a lot of patience from my parents and teachers. My parents, for example, weren’t very happy listening to me practise during long car trips.
Since I was born I’ve had a slight CP and a slight visual impairment but they have not bothered me so much. I have learned to live with the difficulties they have brought in my every day life. Music has always been a big part of my life. I have played in quite many band compositions and concerts as a member of the band or the soloist. I play the trumpet, the flugelhorn, drums, ukulele and keyboards in addition to my hands – and I play everything ranging from the Beatles to Mozart or Sibelius.
Contact me if you want to see me play live.
If you still can’t play with your own palms, you can test what you could “fart” with my hands.
