updating activities

After "Kallokontrolli" there is going to be a while when I´m not posting anything I´ve made. Feel a little bit worn out. I´ll post only kaamoshows because they are fun to make.
Future projects include "60 Minutes" (this seems to be a veeery long project), "La Musique Concrète part 2" (two tracks made already) and maybe a 3" mini cdr of warped illbient-ish music with dance rhythms and noisy textures (one track ready, it was supposed to be included in "Kallokontrolli" but it was left out at the last moment). Hallelujah.


Oops, Kaamoshow 3 moved here.

FINALLY! Thee almighty, powerful, long-awaited and blaah-blaah-blaah is here. Making of "Kallokontrolli" lasted a bit but I hope it was worth it. Originally it was supposed to be a single noise album but it turned out to be A) a double CDr, and B) far from being just a noise record. I have often difficulties describing which genre my musical creations belong to, so just take a listen and judge yourself. Compared to my previous releases, "Kallokontrolli" features unusually large amount of improvised tracks which have been slightly post-processed and edited.

Tracks are:
CD1-1 {-0-}
CD1-2 The Death of ندا آقا سلطان
CD1-3 «Наши» (Vladimir the Impaler mix)
CD1-4 Standing in the shadows of mediocrity
CD1-5 Forest fire
CD1-6 Basics of fully functional society are built on participants armed with sheer goodwill and ignorance
CD1-7 0¤¤¤0
CD1-8 Homoerotic rallies of the 3rd Reich
CD1-9 You think you´re master race but I think you´re pathetic joke
CD1-10 Vote with a brick (edit)
CD1-11 Springtime kills me
CD2-1 ###+]
CD2-2 Bleeding circuits
CD2-3 Bitch vomit
CD2-4 guitar piece #1
CD2-5 guitar piece #4
CD2-6 '''''......
CD2-7 Jam 24th july 2009
CD2-8 Anorexia help line 666
CD2-9 Ich Bin Laden
CD2-10 Ruttopuiston kävelevä vainaja
CD2-11 Every day I wake up and wish _______ was dead (fill in the blank space)
CD2-12 Ins´allah
CD2-13 The Death of Kelsang Namtso

Elements of destruction were: Korg Kaossilator, micro Korg synthesizer/vocoder, Moog etherwave theremin, cheap piece-o-shit electric guitar and bass guitar, Meinl helix bowl, wind chimes, human voice, metal, Boss RC-2 loop station, Boss ME-50, Line 6 Tone Core delay and reverb pedals, samples and concrete sounds, data bending, Roland SP-404 sampler, PhotoSounder, Audacity, Pro Tools LE 7... and I would love to add Paiste symbals but I´m sorry I don´t have them. So much for rock´n´roll and street credibility.

Few side notes:
The cover above is not the real cover. Real cover is black sand paper with a small screw holding the records inside. I just thought it would be nice to have some picture added to this post (and other places on the net).
Tracks CD2-4 (guitar), CD2-5 (bass) & CD2-7 (Kaossilator and Boss Me-50) are live impros recorded straight to two tracks. Only minimum post-editing was made. I don´t know a shit about playing a guitar and learning chords is a real annoyance. But still you can get a good amount of interesting sounds and noises out of them (out of anything) without worring about notes and is it in tune or out of tune. CD2-2 was made using only my voice, feedback and loop station. CD2-3 was made in same way but with an added lo-fi rumbling which I cannot remember where it came from (there are lot of accidental sounds present in "Kallokontrolli"). Both are old tunes that existed before I started making this record and CD2-3 is probably my favorite track at the time of writing.
CD1-2 is dedicated to young Iranian female Neda Agha-Soltan who was randomly shot during a demonstration in Tehran on june 2009. You can read more about her here. CD2-13 is dedicated to 17 year old Tibetan nun who was viciously shot in snow-white mountains by chinese soldiers while she was trying to escape into exile from Tibet. More about her here.
CD1-3 is the original version of «Наши», remixes of that has been available as a remix EP here. You can read about «Наши» (Nashi or Putin Jugend) here and there. I have mixed feelings of their actions and I´m quite happy that they stay on the other side of Finnish-Russian border. It is OK to fight fascism but what really is their alternative???
CD1-1, CD1-7, CD2-1 & CD2-6 are meant to be intros and midtros dividing the whole "Kallokontrolli" into four separate parts. CD2-1 features sample of Elizabeth Taylor in excellent film Suddenly Last Summer. Digital synth noise of CD1-10 is available elsewhere in this blog in uncut form.
