Here is some electronic music I made back in 1996. Lots of samples from various sources. Welcome to Reality includes speaking from newscasts about the bombing incident at Atlanta Olympics. The Journey‘s beginning string sample is from the background music of The Bold and Beautiful.
This project terminated a bit after about 5 months work, as my interests were going more into band playing. Also, some technical limitations caused frustration. (in The Journey, you can hear the soundcard not triggering all the samples in sync…)
There were couple of other songs I was working on, in similar style, but, unfortunately they have not survived.
Here is a new piece, a side-product of one video game project where I’m involved in. This grew out of a demo that ultimately was not selected for the game, but there will be another piece there instead.
Also, this is the first piece to use my new Analogue Solutions Leipzig synthesizer which has in brief time became an integral part of my studio.
Some moments ago, sad news also came that Jon Lord, the legendary keyboardist of Deep Purple has passed away. This piece & post shall be dedicated to his memory.
Summer is here! So much cool things happening in Helsinki. I’m, as always, busy working with too many music projects, but I have had some time to chill as well.
I’m happy to tell you that Petra’s Planet, virtual world for children is officially launched. It features much of my audio work, and has kept me very busy during the last months. Check it out! (Hint: for just some casual fun, go to the games page!)
Also, our pet toys from Petra’s Planet wrote and performed this nice song, with little help from me:
I want also to share this song I made this week with you. It was inspired by traditional melodic electronic music, mostly Jean Michel Jarre, my childhood icon. (Hence the working name, Jarre of Hermanni, referring to myself and the area in Helsinki where I live. Too lazy to invent a proper name for it now )
