Pekka Airaksinen: Vertical Pillars LP

Electronic instrumental improvisational music inspired by mathematical information drawn from ancient texts. Rhythms are divided into four layers, to mirror the elements: earth (bass drum); water (tom); fire (snare); and wind (cymbal). Just as, according to Indian beliefs, Buddha is the pinnacle of human attainment, PEKKA AIRAKSINEN strives to create perfect rhythms that accompany the perfect life. Recorded in 1983-84, all tracks are previously released on limited-edition CDRs—three from Sugatas (Dharmakustannus 1997) and one from Jewel Comet (Dharmakustannus 1997).
