 uton ~ say hello to the butterflies 3'' (makrame, 2013)

"deep sounds recorded under the sea... hearing this you can reach the depth of the ocean"

"Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen, hailing from Tampere, Finland. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases.

the music of Uton is drawing inspirations from psychedelia to free jazz to pure ecstatic drones and noises using a wide range of acoustic instruments from various parts of the globe and a bulk of electronics. recorded in glorious lo-fi the mystery of Hirvonen's sound is difficult to pinpoint; sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze ~ gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust." fma

un puñado de misteriosas mini sinfonías marinas y frecuencias alienígenas muy Louis & Bebe Barron. Jani Hirvonen, tantos años ofreciendo discos preciosos...
