jüppala kääpiö

"Alpen Ocean is the final recording of Carole Kojo (Swiss) and Hitoshi Kojo (Japanese) that they left behind as Jüppala Kääpiö, whilst resident in Switzerland. the sound sources are rather familiar instruments and materials for us such as voices, handmade instruments, viola, organic materials and field recordings. however, the style has evolved to a hybrid of our early style: an intense harmonic drone music and another phase which might be termed as a cosmopolitan ethnic music. the overlaid harmonies of a murmuring of trees, howling skies, roarings of the ocean and the gradual transformation that is accompanied by melodies may remind you of migratory birds travelling across the sky on a lost ancient continent, or the dream of sea animals that are in eternal slumber in a ridge of mountains..." hitoshi kojo
