Finally it is ready! Celebrating my daughter´s one-year birthday here is Marko & Myky: ”Mekonium Baby” 3” CD-R. Participants were Marko-V (born 1970) and Pinja (born 2008). All sounds are vocal voices and other noises produced by Pinja.

First track Sandman features distorted sounds of Pinja´s whining which sounds a lot like overdriven guitar. There´s also metallic rhythm of her banging on a can.
Title track Mekonium baby is longest track. It is slowly evolving stuff divided in two separate parts. This track includes only whining and breathing sounds even though the rhythm of the second part sounds like warped drum machine.
Toy synth v1.0 and v2.0 include sounds of Pinja vocalising and playing children´s toy keyboard (which has by now gone to graveyard of old electronic gadgets, R.I.P.). Actually she managed to get the keyboard malfunctioning and producing strange sounds which are presented here. I never managed to get such a great sounds out of it.
Voi itku was presented here on Ikuinen kaamos blog before. Slowed down voices of Pinja remind me of Whitehouse´s track Baby from Quality Time CD.
Retarded lullaby ends this mini album and features also sounds of Pinja before she was even born. The clicking sounds of the latter part of this song are originally produced by machine which monitors child´s heart rate just before birth begins (oh yes, I had recorder with me in maternity hospital).

Enjoy, it demanded hard time and effort doing this.

WELL... good thing! I also thought of recording my wife & daughter on the time of birth, but both wanted to kill me!!!

That is so sad. I´m probably one of the very few people who actually has his/her child´s very first screaming recorded. My woman still can´t listen to that recording - all the pain and agony and whining and screaming.
