One single varying drone with waterscapes, russian trains, a factory, pipe organ, nature and technology. This album shows you a very deep and spiritual side of rihmasto.

This CD is in a DVD-box with piece of the real "rihmasto" inside. Cover art by Vikur.

Koneisto
Turku 5.8.2000

Performed live at Koneisto-festival, Turku. There was the ambient adventure park with lots of ambient-DJs and live performances.

We played one long and varying track full of very visual soundscapes. First there was a light forest section with birds and streaming water. Then you go underground, where is dark and scary. It takes you through the cave. Suddenly there is water everywhere. It takes your consciousness upside-down. At the end you find yourself relaxing in the paradise.

Unten Mailla
Kokkola 22.4.2000


1. osa 1  40:01
2. osa 2  27:41

Live performance at Pääsiäisjamit, Kokkola. There was a space only for rihmasto and Nemesis. We played alternately the whole evening.

There was also a visual side of rihmasto in that performance. Two videoscreens were reflected through the veil to the audience.

The sound was quite dark and slow. We played without any planning, and just let the sound take us further.

Suo
1999


73:59

Only one long track that is a mixdown combination. Suo includes all the tracks of rihmasto and värähtely. Suo means swamp in english. There are lots of weird things at this swamp. You can bring your own swampy space with a week lasting repeat play.

Värähtely
1998


1. kohinasignaali  18:27
2. vedessä  19:17
3. kantajan takauma  12:56
4. uniaika  16:16

More minimal side of rihmasto. Värähtely means vibration in english. Every sound has the own level of vibration. Colors has their own level, and everything else vibrates. There is lots of vibration we do not sense. You can find some new vibration at this album, that people do not sense normally.

Kohina Signaali is made by Jukka. There are noisy signals coming from outer space. You can almost see those colored signals coming through the noisy space.

Vedessä is made by Jarkko. A close look to some really wet and quiet place, where is something that has really got lost.

Kantajan Takauma is made by Jukka. There you can find a rhythmic side of rihmasto, and unhealthy sounds that crawls through your head.

Uniaika is made by Jarkko. A trip to the inorganic world of shadows. A very minimal and deep track made among the trees.

Rihmasto
1997


1. suunta  11:27

2. muoto  8:31

3. pohja  8:35

4. näkemys  8:31

5. kuei  16:37

 

Early rihmasto album in the beginning of everything. This is how it all began. The sound is pure, but not very deep surroundings yet. We had lots of influences of many other ambient artists.

Suunta is a really dark piece of rihmasto. One long drone leads you through the binaural bubbleforest.

Muoto is totally a binaural work. The sound goes over and through your head. It feels like your head is surrounded by electricity.

Pohja leads you below the surface. First you are in the water, then you dive. There are all kinds of things and lots of pressure. Suddenly you reach the bottom.

Näkemys is a difficult sounding track. These rhythms comes from some far place that is not meant to the people.

Kuei is a mixture of nature and technology. This track tells you the story of the developing soul of disappearing nature.
