A Love Cycle
2006 repress; new cover artwork and a bonus tracked added ("Suuri Hoyhen" from a K-RAA-K label sampler). The second album from Es aka Sami Sänpäkkilä. On this album, the main source of sound is three turntables bought from flea markets for $10.00 a piece. Those, and a few effects are the only sound sources that have been used. The atmosphere maintains its course of melancholy through these romantic, and at times heartbreaking sound collages. The adjacent loops that you hear begin to create new dimensions and layers of sound. And when you listen to the songs, you can almost hear those forgotten melodies that you have always searched for in your heart. Recognizable (and acknowledged) exemplariness can be heard when thinking of such artists as the loop 'n' scratch artist Philip Jeck and Terry Riley.
