If I do remember correctly, BEYOND THE BITGATE was the last work I did in 2017. And if I really put my serious mask on and look up towards the ceiling, it was mostly a result of me playing around with a random synthesizer sound, without any particular master plan.
It might be a work of a very tired composer, but I still think it came out pretty nice. Big sound is big.
No, bigger than that. It’s big. And it’s got a theremin friend.
(As a sidenote, why is it always the dirty word that catches your attention, when you open up a dictionary.)
LoFi popity-hopity extravaganza of the day. Otherwise describing such a piece would be like telling a fellow human what a human looks like:
“It’s got a torso and you know, toes and all the good stuff.”
Now hey, this particular specimen has a silly name: STOP WHAT YOURE DOING AND TWIST BUT NOT YOUR ANKLE.
(At this point, I took a break to check some twist dancing videos.)
Forget everyday life.
Forget smoothies, push-ups & dental floss. Forget too fitting clothes and social restrains. Forget drinking too little or too much water per day. Forget to check if your keys are in your pocket, ‘cos they are.
Forget what’s hot & new and forget that you must have it immediately. Forget to comment, subscribe and smash that like button.
Forget at least for a while something really important, which in the grand scheme of things isn’t such a big deal after all.
Forget arki and take a step to another world, where samurais adventure in the pages Kalevala. Via Dar es Salaam: KATALA KATANA.

Some nasty buggers that earwormed me in 2017:
– “Try A Little Tenderness “, the Otis Redding version
– “Birdland” by Weather Report
– “Heat of the Moment” by Asia
However, there was one song that tormented me above everything else:
– “Squonk” by Genesis
Damn you, infectious drumming! Go away, please.
My own music didn’t repeatedly pester me too much this year. RAISED EYEBROW AND A NOD for that.
