Finland's Mika Vainio presents his fourth solo album for the Touch label, after Onko (1997), Kajo (2000) and In The Land Of The Blind One-Eyed Is King (2003). He is one-half of Pan Sonic with Ilpo Väisänen, and also records solo as Ø. Vainio's solo works are akin to meditative sound installations -- ruminations on the inner-working heart of machine-made music. Sometimes juxtaposing warm analog sounds with harsher electronics, or isolating and diminishing sounds into ambient gauziness, Vainio is an important technician who has firmly established himself in the cadre of minimal, carefully-sculpted electronics.
