PROJECT VAINIOLLA: Animus
Release date: 06/12/2015
It is impossible to pigeon-hole Kalle Vainio’s compositions into any particular genre; they take in everything from classical minimalism to film music and Nordic folk music.
The Animus solo disc is a flowing listening experience whose sonorous tracks were created using a grand piano, various other kinds of pianos and more experimental acoustic keyboard instruments. The music has space, power and just the right amount of edge and quirkiness.
Deceptively simple motifs create complex aural and emotional tapestries that draw the listener in to meditate silently on the palette of sounds.
