Grief distance

by Didymos

Progressive electronic music in the 80s style. Slowly sweeping pads, rhytms and melodies with gentle sequencing. Melancholic moods and a feeling of drama. Soundtrack music, sort of.

Album Notes
The man behind the pseudonym Didymos is Tommi Haavisto, a Finn, who's been producing electronic music since the 80s. His music has many times been compared to that of Tangerine Dream, or even JM Jarre, eventhough the melodies and arrangements do show clear 'fingerprints' of his own.

In the fall 2006 "Grief Distance" was selected for the CD of month by CUE-Records, a major distributor of electronic music in Germany.

"Didymos is Tommi Haavisto from Vantaa (admin edit 2008: from Joensuu)in Finland. Grief Distance is his second full release, on his own label. The music is all composed on synthesizers, in this case, almost exclusively software synthesizers. The music he creates is dark, droning but also beautiful. Some of this could easily be used in horror or psychological thriller movies. Tommi is quite a master of creating mood. Don't get me wrong, not all the music is dark and mysterious. The sound is very lush and rushes right over you (especially in headphones). I am quite impressed and if you are a fan of synthesizer based music like Tangerine Dream you will quite enjoy this stuff. I think it is quite amazing."

"...I’m reminded of Tangerine Dream’s stronger soundtrack work from the eighties, without specific musical reference to any particular one – it’s more of a general flavor. Cool rhythms punctuate the air in “The Calling,” with really nicely layered synths, some carrying the melody and some delivering the atmospheric touches for added richness and depth. “Arduous Distance” brings much of the same, the hummable melodies and toe-tapping beats moving at a bit more leisurely pace. “Blueberry Dance” is a bit too cute and sweet for my taste, but it is followed by the very catchy “Agonylog,” with wonderful sequencing and warm pads. I’m reminded a lot of Venja’s Arcadia disc, which isn’t surprising since it too has a lot of eighties synth influences. “Mount of Olives” is appropriately serious in tone, followed by “Anguish,” once again bringing strong rhythms to bear. Bright piano is played with surprising intensity. “Mourning’s over” is similar but sadder than “Mount of Olives.” The disc concludes with eternal hope in “Beneath the Promise Vault.” If you like melodious thematic synth music, it doesn’t get much better than Grief Distance." © 2006 Phil Derby / Electroambient Space
