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!

Take care!

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
