A new musical excursion from Kepa Lehtinen …Face plant is a six track
mini album of original contemporary classical music written for piano,
contrabass, and theremin. . The theremin is an century-old electronic
instrument that’s played by hand gestures rather than direct contact.
“Nobody uses theremin like I do. It is not a solo instrument anymore.
Because theremin responds to even the slightest movement (even to the
players breath) it has become the organic sonic cornerstone of my music.
It is the element that makes the soundscape really come to life ”
Breakdown of the Tracks…..
Face plant “I am a 50 years old skateboarder. I have always loved the
expression ”Face plant” (an instance of falling face first into or
on to something.) If you skate on the limits of your skills you are
going to fall at some point. It is going to hurt.“
Kontula Kontula (2018) is my most beloved composition. (740 000
streams on Spotify) ”Kontula ” is a new solo remake of the piano
version of the theme.
Fall ”The mix of classical and retro electronic music makes ideas
escape easily and appreciate the changing season. Beautiful, very, very
beautiful.” Mika Roth/desibeli.net
Nowhere ”Kepa gives an original instrument a new voice and expression
in a center stage manner that merges electronic with a future indie
classic. ” Ryan Martin/Jammerzine
Lockdown…Arpeggios on a broken piano – the sound of a pandemic.
It is ok to be a computer… Chiptune version of my track ”It is ok to
be sad and dark” The last track on all my solo records is the
Commodore 64 version of some previous song. The Spotify algorithm will
punish me – lol.
