Hannu Karjalainen lives in Helsinki, Finland. His surname is unpronouncable to non Finno-ugric language speakers so prefers to simply be known as Hannu. His musical background includes a free-grindcore band Abyss at the age of 11 plus lots of teenage experiments with four-track recorders and synthesizers. His source of inspiration is nature, landscape, weather, light, places, friends… etc. His music captures a mood or a feeling of a place, to take the listener somewhere for a moment. The album is a very personal statement and it is mostly recorded and produced at home in Helsinki but some of the songs utilize sounds culled from four-track recordings he made as a teenager in his home town in Northern Finland. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ( I suppose Murcof fans should dig this to bits. Very relaxing music all together. Would also love to get my hand on their earlier release "Worms in My Piano". Anyone... I seriously wouldn't mind a shout ). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Worms in My Piano Artist - Hannu Album - Worms In My Piano Release Date - 2006 Genre - Experimental, Electronica, Minimal, Ambient, Dark-electro, Soundscape, Experimental-folk Tracklist 1 Sumu 2:56 2 Haapavesi 3:44 3 Metsa 3:22 4 Worms in My Piano 2:32 5 Lyhty 3:41 6 Ikuisuus 4:36 7 Suruista Suurin 3:00 8 Winter Song 2:58 9 Valisoitto 2:56 10 Uusi Aamu 4:24 11 Junassa 4:27 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hannu - Worms In My Piano ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hintergarten Artist - Hannu Album - Hintergarten ( * * * * * ) Release Date - 2009 Genre - Experimental, Electronica, Minimal, Ambient, Dark-electro, Soundscape, Experimental-folk Tracklist 1 Pop 4:11 2 Lauttasaari 4:14 3 Theme for Grant 4:07 4 Valtameri 3:42 5 Kimallus 2:15 6 Maniac Moshers 3:17 7 Kaipaus 4:53 8 Tassunjälkiä 6:02 9 Hintergarten 3:52 10 Unenviejä 3:59 11 Valssi 5:27 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hannu - Hintergarten Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recommendations: ~ Cokiyu ~ Bohren & der Club of Gore ~ Balmorhea ~ Stabilo ~ Telemetrics ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ THANKS HOTBLACK...

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
