Aanityksia offers wildly untamed electronic experiments from the ’60s and ’70s by this extraordinary Finnish inventor/composer. During his career, Kurenniemi invented a series of incredible electronic synthesizers that used camera images, brain impulses and sexual touching to trigger unique sounds. The tracks range from the horrible robotic torture chamber of On-Off” to shimmering electronic overtones, Hendrix-esque feedback, tape-collage and subtle Nintendo beats. The music evokes Stockhausen and more experimental Kraftwerk, adding an occasional taste of Switched On Bach. This stuff is amazing if you’re into weird, experimental groundbreaking synthesis.
