AFTER THE END COMES A BEGINNING


Lappländer's new album Loppu ja alku (The End And The Beginning) moves from one dimension to other - from milky way to the riverbank, from outer space to inner space. Every thing and every phenomenon is a part of the same cycle, constant change and rebirth. Lappländer's philosophy is to include the listener in the creative process. The music is experienced in a different way depending on time, place and the listener's state of mind. It's mostly improvised and recorded on the first take, but over time it forms into some kind of a story in the listener's head, being open to their interpretation. The aim is to seize the moment in order to keep everything fresh and to preserve the joy of discovery. ​ This record was heavily inspired by the movies of Luis Bunuel and the classic movie Stalker by Andrei Tarkovski. Like Bunuel's movies, the music takes turns into unexpected and surprising directions. The aesthetic of Stalker is evident in the delicate balance between beauty and harshness. Lappländer aims to make timeless music, and that is reflected also on the technical side of things, where old and new blend into one. Vintage analog gear and modern software instruments are played side by side. Lappländer also employs his own variations of tape techniques originally used by Brian Eno and Robert Fripp.


The album is out now on streaming services and Bandcamp.

When Saku Kämäräinen was a kid, he loved air travel and admired aviation. He could never become a pilot, so he became Concorde Pilot. Rhythmic and emotional, his music is inspired by feelings evoked by aviation and the duality surrounding the topic. Contemplating your past and future adventures, feeling the anticipation of the upcoming journey, while being confined to a pressurised aluminium tube, a highly unnatural environment. Feeling the freedom and taking in the beauty of the blue sky, while knowing that this form of transportation is one of the reasons our planet could become inhabitable in the near future.


The new EP Three Words features 30 minutes of Concorde Pilot's signature sound: electronic in character, but melancholic and beautiful in a human way. Perfect for lonely late-night listening but also suitable for dancefloors.

To create timeless music, old and new must blend into one. Vintage analog gear and modern software instruments are played side by side. Lappländer also employs his own variations of tape techniques originally used by Brian Eno and Robert Fripp.
