  • Availability:

This is a 2023-disc record + CD released by Finnish composer/pianist Osmo Lindeman from the country's experimental/dance label Sahko Recordings in November 11.

Contains 1969 electronic music songs created by Osmo in his home studio from 1974-11.

The following is an explanation by the author himself in 1974.

 "Electronic music represents the future.
Currently, their use is limited due to the complexity of the available methods.
Over time, as the technical production of electronic music becomes simpler, its use will no doubt increase. It's probably not going to replace live music, but we don't know.
Electronic music is cold in a sense, but isn't the world cold now?
In the world of politics, for example, people talk about the ``Cold War.''
It's true that there's something really cold about electronic music.
However, in every era, we create art that has a relationship with ourselves. And art is essential to our lives.
In the end, I faced the same problems in composing electronic music as I did in composing for orchestra.
Even more so than when composing orchestral music. "

Artist statement by Osmo Lindeman 1959–1961 and 1974:

"Electronic music represents the future.
Today, its use is limited due to the complexity of available methods.
Eventually, when the technical production of electronic music becomes simpler, its use will undoubtedly increase. I doubt it will replace a live performance, but you never know.  
Electronic music is in some way cold, but isn't our current world cold?
In politics they talk about “cold war”, to give an example.
Undoubtedly, there is something really cold about electronic music,
but every era creates art that is related to itself. And art is an essential part of the life we ​​​​live.
Eventually, I faced the same problems in electronic music composition
than when composing orchestral music.”
