New album - The Endless Now – Music for Stagnation by Juha-Matti Rautiainen

A Finnish musician Juha-Matti Rautiainen releases an ambient album in December 2016 which has been composed and performed live in its entirety by using only effected bass guitar.

Rautiainen has been working for years as a professional bass player in Finland. He cut the tip of his right index finger in an accident on New year’s Day in 2014, and afterwards he got the idea of composing ambient music by using his primary instrument exclusively.

”The Endless Now – Music for Stagnation” –album’s music is organic, minimalistic and meditative. Instead of the traditional musical elements the music concentrates on the refinement of slowly evolving moods and various textures. Since the music is originally conceived and performed live, concerts are a vital part of Rautiainen’s artistry. Playing every note alone with a vast array of pedals, he is able to take live-ambient act into a totally new level.

Rautiainen has been playing bass guitar professionally for over 15 years on stage and in studio in various bands of various genres. Today he works as an instrument teacher in Kaustinen college of music and tries to be a good father for two daughters.

New album - Pipe Dream by Jet Plane

2016-12-12 06:36:21 UTC

Jet

Pipe Dream” is the third Jet Plane album. Its mood, emotions and imagery have been inspired by events going on around us – in the here and now. Beautiful airy tunes entwine into an atmosphere of tension and dismay, ethereality and featheriness are followed by a vibrant crescendo. Peace and harmony seem a pipe dream; but it has long been considered just as inapproachable for a man to hit the skies and fly. So let us dream.

Classic post-rock harmonies enframed by violin remind of Mogwai and Yndi Halda. Apart from that, Jet Plane employ bagpipes and nyckelharpa, which is the band’s specialty distinguishing them from the rest. The album sound has been also moulded by famous Japanese musicians and sound producers Takahiro Kido and Kashiwa Daisuke having worked on album’s mixing and mastering.
