Updated the songs on the side and added recent stuff to the CV
Demo reel for 2013 coming shortly.
This post effectively works as a miniature curriculum vitae of mine. It includes a demo reel for 2011 and a short résumé, along with contact info on the bottom.
Time to end this slumber and start doing stuff. I’ll be updating the site during the next few weeks with a few blog posts and new songs. I’ll also wrap up a facebook artist page (about the time) and see about updating all the other communities I belong to.
The last year has been slow what’s come to music, thus the site also fell into a slumber. I’m currently working on a soundtrack to a disclosed project, I’ll let some sneak peeks out if I can get the permission from the devs.
Until then, cheerio.
Wow, something’s happening? It’s been rather slack 7 months on this project, but at least we’re finally done. Featuring 14 different artists, and over 4 hours of music. It replaces the ambient and GNR music as well as few music effects in the game. If you want your Fallout 3 to sound more hostile and post-apocalyptic, this is the mod to grab.
So, I just managed to start on the last battletrack of the Fallout 3 Alternative Soundtrack. That is the last complete track that is needed, so we should be closing in on the release.
Also, I wrapped up another D’n'B song yesterday;
Been a while. Not much has been going on. Just the usual, boring life, which I quite enjoy. Anyway, I’ve done a little something during the last couple days. Check this out;
So, it seems we’re closing in on the final release of this site. Only 3 months late, hehe.
On another note, I’m learning to play keyboards again, which is harder than I realized. Just gotta keep on smashing the keys, maybe I’ll produce something melodic some day. At least I can play Song of Storms from Ocarina of Time already. Almost.
Then there’s that Fallout 3 Alternative Soundtrack, which is also going to be released about 3 months late. We’ve got most of stuff wrapped up now. Or should I say Claymore’s got most of the stuff wrapped up, I’ve been more or less slacking the whole time on the administrative side. I’ll see if I can make another combat theme or two during the next few days.
Oh, and tomorrow’s a fun night at the pub. There’s this bar called “PSK Kaupunni” just across the street and they have these Chambre Noir events in there, which means they’re playing dark ambient, noise and industrial the whole night, which is, obviously, beyond awesome.
More coffee and cigarettes. Adios.
It is depressing to notice that I finish only 10% of my songs that I start nowdays. The figure used to be so much higher a few years back and nearly 100% during the first few years after I discovered Impulse Tracker.
The driving force, the motivation to finish every idea I have, is long gone now. Completing my ideas has become more or less superfluous to me now that I don’t desperately seek feedback to my work anymore. The actual composing is the fun part, afterall.
At least I have alot of skeletons of songs waiting for the final touch in my drawer. I know that some day I’ll finish each one of them. Or not.
Here's a small fraction of my imagination for you to listen to. You can play the songs just by clicking on them.
I am Sampo Närhi, a Finnish homo sapiens sapiens. I was raised into a family of musicians and other artists. Needless to say I’m a bit peculiar. I also am one of those people who drink too much coffee, stay up too late and never can find a pen when it’s needed. This, I believe, is quite common among artists.
I spend my days by staring blankly at my computer screen, waiting for revelations - ideas for new songs. Those occur very rarely nowdays unless I have a project to concentrate my thoughts on.
Electronic music is my forte, which of breakbeat, drum’n’bass, ambient and industrial are the closest to my heart. Despite that, I like to think myself as a very versatile composer, since I have the means and the experience to work on almost anything. I also have a fetish for ethnic percussions and post-apocalyptic stuff.
I believe mood is what makes and defines music. It doesn’t have to be complex to be awesome, it doesn’t have to have a clear structure with many different parts to be good. All music really needs is a carefully crafted atmosphere that makes the listener really feel something.
Want to collaborate? Got a project that needs music? Want to sell me dramamine? Just feel an urge to say hello? Just drop me a mail and I'll get back in touch with you asap.
You can find me or my music also from various other places.
