ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ozone Player's Insane Logic is an original mixture, or rather an extrapolation, of many musical styles.

This is not your typical "synthesizer album".

The sounds and rhythms evolve - or change drastically.

You can't dance to it (unless you're a professional dancer) and it would be impossible to meditate (or fall asleep) listening to it.

This is music for listening, "foreground music".

Alternative tunings are used on many tracks causing an oriental or sometimes alien feeling.

Weld

Fresh Electronic from Finland
Very deep, and layered. I like it very much!! Otso certainly puts alot of love and time
into his music as and It shows!! Every note is well sculptured. Some of the songs are in a Aphex Twin Ambient vibe.
Unique and fresh sounding in the end, something you dont get very often these days.
I also like the high sonic quality of the recording.
Very well done!

Evocative mixture of ambient, industrial and exceptional production values filte
OZONE PLAYER: INSANE LOGIC (visual power 001) Highly original music which suits very well under the title "Insane Logic". The music is very varied, often within the confines of the same track. So it´s very hard to give any particular genre names for this stuff. Sometimes it´s Berlin School, but then it morphs into jazzy gamelan music, only to transform into an industrial rhythms or dreamy ambience. So this is not an album for faint hearted, as Otso boldly goes to unexpected territories most of the time. Which is great IMO. Nice change for the predictability of most of the stuff around today...and furthermore: The music is most of the time B....Y ENTERTAINING :) I think I´ll resort to reviewing the individual tracks now: 1. Whales in the Fog -------------------- A very foggy soundscape with some massive chords lurking in the background. Thoroughly composed track, but very athmospheric indeed. Nicely mysterious intro for the album. Some hints of microtonality here and there...if Robert Rich would make theme music for a horror movie, it might sound a bit like this??? 2. Shipping ------------ The most beautiful track of the album. Digital e-piano leads the way and impressive strings follow in descending chords. I happen to know that this track was originally composed for a TV documentary about shipbuilding, but was rejected by the producers! I can easily understand that; the track is very dark and the descending chords very much bring to mind the image of a huge ship slowly sinking to the dephts :) One of the highlights of the album IMO. It´s always admirable when one succeeds making a track that is beautiful but not sweet! Could have been a bit longer, though... 3. The Reality Dysfunction -------------------------- Dramatic crossmixing between this and the previous track. This is the part where the insane logic really starts. Very loose soundscape with surrealistic feeling. A funny rhythm keeps the thing going. The mid part of this longish track reminds me of the best bits of Froese´s "Aqua" (I mean the title track - just the bits that FSOL nicked for their Lifeforms album...those liquid polyphonic chords). The end of the track reminds me of Residents! You either like those "nasal" sounding bits or you don´t... 4. Casino Mobile ---------------- This is one of the most accessible tracks on the CD. Nice and relaxed jazzy feeling with vocal samples and piano. The nice KW styled electro percussion gives a good groove here and there. The latter half of the track is excellent uptempo section with very original melodies. The style of this track reminds me a bit of the best moments of David Tieghem and the likes. A nice one... 5. Minibar ----------- Another "rocker" this one...a familiar track for some of you I guess. A sort of zappaesque gamelan heavy metal industrial rocker ;) A short one this...under 3 mins. 6. Insane Logic --------------- A very mellow sequence keeps the music flowing. A very dreamy piece with nice flanged sounds that remind me of hawaian guitars. Here the unreal quality of Otso´s ambient material is perhaps the strongest; This could be described as melting music indeed. A very powerful ambient track. It is easy just to float away while listening to this one. 7. Praise --------- More nasal vocal samples and heavy industrial rhythms. Ethnic sounds interplay with analog effects. This is also a track for those who like Residents. A nicely deranged track. Perhaps the track that I like the least on this CD. It´s just that I don´t like those "nasal" vocal samples. So no praise from me this time :) 8. Beam ------- Another ambient number. Very ominous...simple, but effective. Like TD used to be on Sorcerer. This one I like too. 9. Warezz --------- Time for an industrial cruncher. A bit like Shreeve in heavy mode. Sequencing brings mind the amok runs on Sorcerer once again. But this is more varied, with some lighter elements thrown in here and there. Would make a great soundtrack for some modern ballet... Nice contrasts built in, both rhythmically and melodywise. 10. Process ----------- Another dark ambient track. A very intensive number...it would be easy to imagine Robert Calvert reciting his poetry on this one. A sort of claustrophobic laboratory feeling... Very nice track indeed, extremely cinematic. 11. A Shortcut to Nowhere ------------------------- This is an uptempo track with rather feverish groove. Strangely Asian sounds and melodies criss-cross over a catchy pulse, that reminds me of Jarre´s most rocking sequences. Perhaps the best uptempo track on the album. The melody is strange, but still very haunting. 12. Transport ?! ---------------- A very original intro indeed. At first the right channel is invaded by a gamelan orchestra. Then the left channel is visited by brisk synth pop rhythms. The two channels are not synced. Then suddenly everything stops and someone is offering "Transport, Sir???". Then the both channels start in sync and the groove gets going. Very effective and original. The track has very strange gamelan elements in the middle that seque into a malaysian jazz groove with a nice sequence in the background. A very strange ending for a strange album. -------------------- All in all, a very good choice for anyone who wants to hear something different for a change. Nevertheless, it´s still e-music and has all the elements most of us like to hear when buying a new album. But the blend is this time very unconvential and therefore very refreshing indeed. A great soundtrack for your "inner cinema" as they say...or do they??? :)

A New Synthesizer Master Is Here
Otso Pakarinen can only be compared with the great synthesists of our time, such as Larry Fast, Vangelis, and
Wendy Carlos.

Imagine going to bed one evening and having a Science Fiction dream, where you visit different worlds and meet different civilizations. You wake up in the morning still shaking from the entire experience. Well, this music is just what you would expect to hear during your long voyage. Otso takes you and your mind into a magical realm where you are no longer on earth, and maybe not even in your own body. This wonderful album is a must-have in every Electronic-Prog listener's collection.

Warning: Do not mix this music with any hallucinogens.

You can bet the next album from Otso's "Ozone Player" will be even more fantastic!

Finally... Emusic that's intelligent AND beautiful!
I've been in this business for a very long time, and I've heard it all. Genres are predictable, styles are cookie-cutter... even the really good music is rarely surprising and delightful. This album is both, in spades.

The quirkiness works to its advantage, with unusual tunings adding beauty rather than the "street cred weird factor", catchy rhythms, moments of genuine humor rather than recycled cartoon sound effects. By turns meditative, stimulating, and riotous, this was the first CD in years that I wanted to listen to more than once and kept coming back to for days and days. Take a bow, Otso... you may be the salvation of electronic music as we know it.
