It’s mastered, the cover done. Materials are heading for duplication next week. I’m very happy!
Sorry for the long absence. I’ve been flooded with work…Did the “Anna mulle Lovee”, mixed “Järven Tarina”, “Onnenonkija” and some other movies, did a mix of “Black Widows” (Scandinavian remake, 8 episodes) and some episodes of “Bordertown” etc etc. Luckily I’ve managed to squeeze time for Liquid Wolf (Drums with Kuoppis = done, brass with Pepa = almost done) and my newest pet project, Inertia. Inertia is old friends Tipi (FlipSide) on bass, Tomi “Laatu” Laaksonen (Kataya Live, KuDos) on drums and my fellow sound designer/musician Janne Laine on guitar. I’m doing some gtrs, keys and lead vocals. We’ve managed to whip 5-6 songs into shape and it’s been a hoot! Hope to have some recordings soon…Will start mixing LW with Samu this month, I hope!
We’ve done most of the crunchy guitars and moved on to the mellower tones….
That’s what the new FlipSide EP is called. It’s a thematic collection of four songs based on the texts of Jani Rämö, my old colleague and friend. He’s also finalizing the cover for us as he’s more of a graphic designer than we. This guy came around to lend us his well seasoned ears:
More to follow…
I was surprisingly asked a few questions about Chapter One for Iltalehti a few weeks back. We also convened and had our picture taken. Here’s the interview…
Samsara Recordings # 4 – Kataya Lives
Sent mixes to Pauli @ Finnvox for mastering….Highlights from 2 gigs 2 years apart….
Tomi is busy preparing the cover art. Release in a month…
We had our first rehearsals tackling Pink Floyd: Time/Breathe and Yes: Into the Lens. As You can imagine Time was easy-ish, but Yes is a mountain. We managed it about halfway through. Fun!
Progsters is a bunch of friends having a good time:
Tomi Laaksonen: Drums • Olli Huhtanen: Keys, vox • Janne Laine: Gtr, keys • Timo Pulkkinen: Bass, vox • Sami Sarhamaa: Gtr, keys, vox
The CD was released yesterday as well as the digital counterparts to Spotify, iTunes et al. This is the first of Samsara Recordings. Next up is the 30th anniversary of Chapter One’s first album, which was never released then but now it will (17.1.2014).
