MAP016 /// Olli Aarni – Mustikoita ja kissankelloja

released by mappa as MAP016 in 2020

Limited Edition 12″ Vinyl. Edition of 200.


From the crystalline sources of the stony rivers through the waves of 5G networks to the blood stream of yellow plasma. Mustikoita ja kissankelloja is like a chaotic sonic sedimentation of new weird Finland music revitalised and flowing through different waste channels, protected habitats and clogged veins. You can scan the microview and listen to the pointillistic murmur on a petri dish or try to stalk the tectonic movements. 

Do you remember the pure electronic ocean of the Pacific Tubular Waves created by Michel Redolfi in 1980? Take Redolfi’s water music, pour it into the electron–positron collider, and use Olli Aarni’s nanoscopic microphone. You’ll find a frenetic mix of trembling static, singing bacteria, thermal bubbles, crinkling fossils, buzzing signals and crackling glaciers – all teeming on unseen wavelenghts.  

The result is a living matter: soundscapes recorded in humid forests, endlessly mutating patterns, and warm ambient evaporating from various well-known electroacoustic studios. 
PS: Disinfect your ears after each listening.
