about

HV052 Valotihkuu - By The River

Valotihkuu's music is a mixture of nature sounds with a variety of acoustic and electroacoustic instruments, tape loops, found objects and lots of childhood memories, which are carefully transferred into music.

"During the album recording sessions I limited myself to a certain setup: electric guitar, looper, delay/reverb pedal and a 4-track portable tape recorder. This helped me to concentrate on expressing the moods instead of being distracted by the necessity of choosing the instrument and timbre. Each track was a result of a single recording session. By means of sound I tried to express some sort of a “stream” feeling; that’s why it was important to me to stay in this state myself, not to ruin the general picture and make the album as solid as possible."

Reviews:

“The album unfolds over the course of a day, from morning to afternoon to evening to dusk, with track titles reflecting the passage of time. The message is clear: years pass, seasons change, but we all get one day at a time. The impression is one of living in the moment. The artist’s approach ~ a single recording session per track ~ reflects this looseness. One may surrender to the slow drift of the music as a leaf surrenders to the flow of the brook.” - Richard Allen, A Closer Listen acloserlisten.com/2019/08/15/valotihkuu-by-the-river/
