Charm of the Scenes event on 26.8. at KoeHelsinki tent in Juhlaviikot. Thanks for everybody for your participation! As you may know, the idea of the event is that the performers are teamed up as pairs, so we will have three duos performing one after another. Our choice for the pairs is this:
Linda Fredriksson (saxophone) + Pentti Dassum (electronics)
Heta Bilaletdin (guitar) + Mikko Kolehmainen (electronics)
Ilia Belorukov (saxophone) + Chi-Hsia Lai (electronics)

Taklamakan vs Umpio : Interaxion Venenosa -LP
Finally out on A Dear Girl Called Wendy from Italia, 100 made! Another project which took a few winters of sending back and forth… Taklamakan from Croatia used my electronic textures as a backdrop for acoustic junk abuse and vice versa. Asphixiation and collapse!
Umpio — Opium Electronix vol.I-III -2xC-90 Tape
Reissued on Freak Animal, these were kinda hard to find and/or lost in time. These are throbbing movements through electronic storms, at times so slow and seismic that the listener needs some time to let the pulses start to work properly on a psychoacoustic level. Opium is also an anagram of Umpio, which brings out the meditative/sedated aspects of these pieces, aimed at erasing all sense of time and presence. From noisy to empty, here are the first 3 volumes compiled on chrome tapes: Vol.I has been augmented with 2 new pieces from the same source material, vol.II has been slightly shortened to fit on tape, and vol.III is unaltered.
Umpio + Irr.App.(Ext.) — Observation Affects The Outcome -CD
Finally out after 2-3 winters of sending sounds back and forth I am super humbled to have finished this nightmare soundtrack with Matt Waldron and Monochrome Vision, one of my favorite labels. This is a huge honor for me.
Here’s what the label info has to say about it (the release date is wrong, it came out in jan2014) ——————————>
First ever collaboration between these finnich and american soundartists, collaborating by mail, incorporates both of their styles, interwined with some kind of disorienting and intricated attitude. Electroacoustic treatments applied to harsch noise and atonal ambient parts, producing a tapestry of disturbing and psychedelic soundscapes.
Release date is 28th January 2013. Limited edition of 500 copies in jewelcase.
Price is 13US$/10€.
