Just when you/me/everyone else recovered from latest SSS split release and Hazarda debut EP, here comes a new full length free download from Salakapakka Sound System's evil twin Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo. "Smut Babylon" is a tribute to the underbelly of visceral non-cinema and scum celluloid.

"Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo tekee epämusiikkiaan kunnianosoituksena roskaelokuvalle ja muulle oudolle kuvamateriaalille. Smut Babylon on pääosin outosävyistä, ohuehkoa ja hyökkäävää noisea joka alussa lähentelee ambientin rajoja. Kuuntelukokemus on lievästi sanoen haastava, sillä sisällön äänenvoimakkuus aaltoilee hyvin hiljaisesta korvia helposti riipivään. Yksinkertaisen pinnan alta löytyy joka tapauksessa kiinnostavia sävyjä ja rakenteita niin että paketin kappaleet eivät jää pelkäksi (epä)taidekohinaksi. Teoskokonaisuus onnistuu parhaalle noiselle ominaisessa “uuden hiljaisuuden” luomisessa hälyn avulla, niin että kuulijasta tuntuu oudolta kun sirinä yhtäkkiä katoaakin pois. Varsinkin Ultra Sonic Suicide Captured Live on TV, joka on hyvällä tavalla kuin noisefiltterin läpi ajettua Troumia, on tästä erinomainen esimerkki.​"

Track titles are:
1. Dark corners of the audiovisual entertainment
2. Ultra sonic suicide captured live on tv
3. Snake feast
4. Man gets punished by a dog
5. Asian shockumentary galore
6. Smut Babylon

Salakapakka Sound System & Sodadosa - split

Salakapakka Sound System joined forces with Indonesian noise unit Sodadosa for a split Bandcamp EP. Result is a fascinating mixture of found object brutality and screeching noisy ambient with Asian influences.

HAZARDA BRUO SONSISTEMO: Eurovision Song Contest 2016 EP

Here is a debut release of SSS sidekick project Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo called "Eurovision Song Contest 2016", being just as silly and stupid as the title suggests. After this year's Eurovision song contest I thought 'what if I layer those songs on top of each other and slightly treat them somehow...?'. Here's the result: four tracks of uneasy listening hodge-podge experience devoid of any compositional structure or talent.

Download whole zipped package from mediafire here.
Listen / download uncompressed wav at
Additional download options coming soon.


This time I present you my new solo side project called Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo which is an output for my ad hoc sound experiments which quite doesn't fit into Salakapakka Sound System repertoire. Stylistically it can be harsh & loud, quiet ambience, structured or abstract, electronic/acoustic/electroacoustic/field recordings or whatever. No borderlines, no insight, no entertainment, no intelligence... no shit.
First release in next post.


Running on last copies of "Atonality Appreciation Society" tape so if you want yours, be quick. Otherwise you can ask for it, "Barbed Wire Boogie" & "Accident Worship" from Freak Animal, Drone Records, Mask of the Slave, Mirgilus Sicilorum, Cursed Tapes, Gravity Swarm and Sun & Moon Records.
Two exciting new split releases on their way (one recycled tape and one bandcamp release) - more about them when they are out.
I am also working on two new side projects, more about them later.

Vietnam field recording mix

This time something different: a collage of recordings I made in Vietnam recently. There's street sounds, announcements, radio & tv, park karaoke, music shows etc.

Vietnam part 2

As usual, on vacation in foreign lands I tend to carry a small portable recorder with me all the time. You never know what once-in-a-life sound happening is waiting just behind the corner. Vietnam offered me a couple of interesting possibilities of recording local music.
Two times I went to a local traditional music shows in the old quarter of Hoi An (an old coastal town in the middle of Vietnam). Even being a bit touristry affairs, they were still fun to watch and listen. I really like the look and sound of traditional Vietnamese instrument dan bau (propably getting one myself).
On one occasion I was spending evening in the local park in HCMC when some blokes were launching their karaoke machines. "Oh, there's gonna be an out-of-tune western pop standard time", I thought first but I was happy to hear that they were karaoking some traditional music. Now that was something I never heard before. I even attended a big local free outdoor heavy metal/rock -concert with Vietnamese bands performing. Nothing original there, most bands sounding like Nightwish, Stratovarius or nu-metal rip-offs but still fun to see that a bit harder rock music is alive and well in Vietnam where some art forms are still struggling with censorship restrictions.
Otherwise the vacation was filled with searching for good places to eat (there was plenty of them), inspecting the surroundings (found one of the ugliest beaches I've ever seen - see the photo with sand bags and a drowned dog carcass) and interesting bulleting boards and signs, visiting ancient ruins of My Son & some temples... and of course hunting for records which I wrote about in my previous post.
