[ET100] Janne Nummela – Alla​-​attapan

Alla-attapan

“These two great terrestrial Chinese learned beings then had recourse for their elucidatory experiments to every kind of what are called ‘chemical,’ ‘physical,’ and ‘mechanical’ experiments and they gradually formed one very complicated and in the highest degree edifying experimental apparatus, which they called ‘Alla-attapan.’”

Gurdjieff: Beelzebub’s Tales

[ET47] Katajamäki – What The Swan Saw

What The Swan SawEtched Traumas is more than happy to present the latest works of Finnish artist Katajamäki, entitled ‘What The Swan Saw’. The opening track is a deep melancholic ambient work set, which is the framework of this EP. Encapsulating a huge vintage 70s ambient electronic synthesized feel of underwater sounds, resembling cold breezes, whales-like tones and sweeping sounds which construct an inspired work, somewhere between Tangerine Dream and Cluster. In the introverted ‘As the cold sun sets’ Katajamäki builds a perfect ambience with an open horizon and a proper deep feel. The final track renders the same frosty picture but the addictive synth pattern and the laidback downtempo beats are the optimistic ending to ‘What The Swan Saw’. From deep underwater scenery we are relocated to mountain peaks. Katajamäki charismatically depicts such antithetic soundscapes.
