SALAKAPAKKA SOUND SYSTEM is (possibly) over

Dear You. From now on I've decided to end the activities of my Salakapakka Sound System moniker. Why? Because there's always been a wide array of styles released under that name (which I hate nowadays), from harsh noise to dark ambient and musique concrete. First, I didn't care but lately I've felt that it would be easier for me and easier for you (maybe?) if different styles could be expressed under different names: Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo for harsh noise, Itsensäsyöjät for beat-oriented minimal electro and yet unnamed project for drone/ambient. Of course those styles will overlap sometimes but the overall separation between these all should be clear. The only thing where Salakapakka Sound System could raise it's ugly head is the situation when there could be a one more part in a series of 'La Musique Concrète' or Buddha Machine. But that's only a distant string of thought.
So, thanks for reading.

Salakapakka Sound System is industrial

Now it's official; Salakapakka Sound System is officially included in the industrial genre history writing. See why. It's sad that it seems like the great Encyclopaedia of Industrial Music series never made it to part IV. I really enjoyed the first three parts.

modular

I've been collecting a few synth modules recently. That's the world you can get lost into soooo easily. I'm trying to keep myself under control.

Available at Bandcamp

Since "Atonality Appreciation Society" tape is sold out from me (you may find some isolated copies around the world if you're lucky), it is now available in digital format at Bandcamp.
Also I'm running on a very few last copies of "Accident Worship" CDr. That is now also available at Bandcamp.

Gear-a-holic part 17





For a long time, a new pedal in the house. Well, bought it some time ago at the A Place To Bury Strangers gig - that's why my copy is a limited edition tour version. Nice, dirty sounding, not-your-typical-reverb pedal. Works quite nice with synthesizer and field recordings, especially when paying attention to dry/wet -relation.

Bandcamp

Salakapakka Sound System is now on Bandcamp. Next release (whether it be from SSS, HBS or Itsensäsyöjät) will be either physical tape or Bandcamp release (for minimum cost). God bless.

SALAKAPAKKA SOUND SYSTEM - Unlit Corners of the Universal Emptiness

Long time silence and suddenly without warning here is new SSS offering called "Unlit Corners of the Universal Emptiness". Honestly, I was working on way much more ambient album but - as usual - it turned out to be more noisy than intended. I call it harsh black ambient. This time it is only digital format - no physical copies exist. Enjoy... or not.

Tracklist:
1. Man versus Moon   (4:12)
2. Apollo 666   (7:58)
3. Panic!   (8:11)
4. Power Failure   (5:00)
5. Last Ten Minutes   (10:00)

Hear / download individual tracks (wav/mp3) at Archive.org or download zipped mp3 package from mediafire or listen/download mp3 files from Free Music Archive or listen/download (mp3/wav) from Bandcamp.
As usual, I strongly suggest downloading WAV-files instead of lossy mp3's.
