Mustikoita Ja Kissankelloja [VINYl]

Aarni, Olli: Mustikoita Ja Kissankelloja [VINYl] (Mappa)

Translating to "Blueberries and cat bells", Finnish electronic composer Olli Aarni's sound world is quick paced and surprisingly dense considering an overall feeling of brightness, sounds flashing and swirling by in strange segments of acousmatic exhilaration, pausing form moments before seizing his listener once more with swift streams of alien soundscapes; brilliant.

Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"From the crystalline sources of the stony rivers through the waves of 5G networks to the blood stream of yellow plasma. Mustikoita ja kissankelloja is like a chaotic sonic sedimentation of new weird Finland music revitalised and flowing through different waste channels, protected habitats and clogged veins. You can scan the microview and listen to the pointillistic murmur on a petri dish or try to stalk the tectonic movements.

Do you remember the pure electronic ocean of the Pacific Tubular Waves created by Michel Redolfi in 1980? Take Redolfi's water music, pour it into the electron-positron collider, and use Olli Aarni's nanoscopic microphone. You'll find a frenetic mix of trembling static, singing bacteria, thermal bubbles, crinkling fossils, buzzing signals and crackling glaciers - all teeming on unseen wavelenghts.

The result is a living matter: soundscapes recorded in humid forests, endlessly mutating patterns, and warm ambient evaporating from various well-known electroacoustic studios.PS: Disinfect your ears after each listening."-Mappa


Artist Biographies

"Olli Aarni (born 1988) is an experimental musician working in Vantaa, Finland. His music reflects the weather conditions and creates artificial views of the nature. Aarni's sounds are based on dense timbres and static harmony, and the soundscapes yield rhythmic repetition and create worlds to get lost in: like reality condensed into magic or a hidden valley between new age and noise. Aarni's discography spans over 20 tapes, vinyls and CDs released on four continents, and he has performed in Japan, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Finland."
