Label: Love Records - LXCD 642 • Format: 22x, File MP3, Album, Compilation, Reissue • Genre: Electronic • Style: Experimental
This two-CD set offers a subjective but nevertheless pertinent overview of Pekka Airaksinen's eclectic musical career, from the Sperm's unclassifiable experiments in the late '60s to his comeback as an experimental laptop artist in the early s. His selection favors Airaksinen's most extreme music, leaving his new age leanings of the '80s and '90s untouched.
The non-chronological play list makes for a hectic ride, but somehow it communicates the man's chameleonesque character. From the early days, there are three tracks by the Sperm, including the minute freakout "Dodekafoninen Talvisota," to which one must add Airaksinen's solo piece "A Little Soup for Piano and Orchestra," reissued on the Love compilation CD Arktinen Hysteria a couple years earlier -- that's a total of 38 minutes of experimental Parada De Tettas - Various - Best DJ Non-Stop Hits 1998 unlike anything else at the time.
There is also one track from the mid-'70s Gandhi-Freud project, several from the early Pieni Sienikonsertto - A Little Soup For Piano And Orchestra Op 46,8 - Pekka Airaksinen - Madam Im the Buddhas of Golden Light LP and Jewel Comet archival CD-Rand a few recent pieces released under the moniker Ajraxin, in which Airaksinen drops his very synthetic-sounding keyboard patches of the '80s to jump into the digital age. Some tracks are confusing, but they all present fascinating idiosyncrasies.
