about

Back in 2009 when I started working with my debut album, I noticed that I have too many songs to release just one album, so I divided them into two different groups with different styles. Jäkälä (Lichen) is the follow-up album to 2011 released album Rauta. Featuring 6 tracks with more organic approach to electronic music where Rauta (iron) was more synthesized and industrial in some way.

Most of these songs have traveled a long road with me. Some have started their journey over seven years ago. At some points along the process I thought they never see the light of day and reach the ears of the listeners. Fortunately some of them were leaked out unfinished to the internet many years ago, and I received a lot of feedback about them. This feedback was a driving force for me in my aim to cross the finishing line and apply the finishing touches to the music.

However, I didn't feel like polishing the music endlessly. In the process of mixing and mastering them I had to constantly revert to versions which dated many years back, just because they were much more original and intuitive in their unprocessed form. I had to find a balance of rawness in every track. While listening, you will find instruments and sounds that are clearly bit too loud or unnecessarily harsh. This is something I have preserved. It makes the songs play out more dangerously and unexpectedly and as such they much better serve their purpose of being mirrors into my soul.

Aki Latvamäki Oulu, Finland

I believe in accidents, I believe in sounds coming from outside, from an open window. I trust my bedroom's reverb, and I trust my broken guitar. All the best sounds come from my own recordings, from moments when I decide to insert kitchen utensils between the strings of an instrument and play notes that just do not exist. ... more
