Abstract

Erkki Kurenniemi’s 50 Years On-Off salutes the 50th anniversary of Kurenniemi’s first groundbreaking musical work. In January 1963 Finnish electronic musical instrument designer, and inventor Erkki Kurenniemi composed On-Off, the first Finnish electro-acoustic work, which anticipated noise as a genre of electronic popular music. The inspiration for the work was an acoustic phenomenon of roaring turbines that Kurenniemi had experienced in his teen-age years when visiting a power plant generator hall. On this deluxe cassette you’ll find the original cut, a short German edit and a brand new re-visit by Mikko Ojanen and Aku Raski.
