I'm a composer/producer from Finland and have produced mainly instrumental music since 2001. My main projects revolve around stock music, epic music, piano music, background music, film music, ambient and minimalism genres. I release my music under Creative Commons but offer commercial licences via french Jamendo.com. I specialise in free background music, hence Creative Commons. Creative Commons music is getting bigger and bigger these days and I have been one of the most licenced artists on Jamendo for three years now. I have specialized in producing instrumental music using virtual orchestra sound libraries in spirit of film music / soundtrack music. I also produce electronic ambient soundscapes and more modern crossover tunes that integrate virtual orchestra with electronic patterns and elements. Also with the Frozen Silence project I create minimalistic piano music and guitar music with instrumental, mainly melancholic atmospheres.
Some of my albums are now available on Spotify as well, feel free to tune in!
My instrumental music has been integrated widely these past few years into various projects as background music ranging from webpages to commercials and DVD marketing products. It has definitely found it's place among the vast library of stock music available in the modern day internet! Two Steps From Hell is still a long way a head, but here I come! I have been responsible for the music production of the following two Elisa promotion videos with really epic music tunes:
The videos were produced by Dicole. I have also released collections of my tunes as background music addon packs for popular computer role-playing game Oblivion and they have received warm welcome and a large following:
27.5. - new webpage and Facebook integration. Drop in to say hi!
25.5. - Dicole produced yet another wonderful video for elisa and I was responsible for epic music soundtrack. Enjoy Global, Local, Personal:
26.3. - I want to make one thing clear - even though finnish christian campaign Nuotta used one of my tunes in their promotional video I DO NOT agree with many of their views, values nor ideas they represent and work towards, especially when it comes to sexuality and gay rights. The Creative Commons licence allows them to use the tune without asking me directly, and I heard of the integration only afterwards and got a bit furious especially as my name was mentioned in the credits in a video, which basically stated that homosexual people can "cure" their state via prayer.
Sadly this is the problem with Creative Commons - I cannot control where the music is used and how, and sometimes things like this happen. I just want to clarify, that I do not believe that homosexuality is something that "should be cured".
3.12. - there's nothing quite like producing ex-tempore emo-industrial instrumental music tune to cheer up yourself, if you are feeling a bit down. Totally hilarious lyrics, over the top guitar solos and way too much compression.
1.8. - I decided to try fooling around with guitar effects and produced this simple instrumental electronic idea:
23.6. - My instrumental background music tune was integrated into a wonderful presentation by Dicole:
6.6. - Another studio session, another instrumental music tune. Nostalgic trip to 90s and the computer game soundtracks of the era.
5.6. - Summer vacation began finally and I celebrated the freedom by producing a swashbuckling instrumental background music tune called "Pirates of the Baltic":
30.5. - Two new short instrumental music Jamendo releases - "Fable" and "Epic", epic music soundtrack madness:
30.4. - Happy may day everyone! Here's a simple metric mathcore instrumental music tune inspired by the magnificent project Meshuggah:
25.4. - I haven't had too much inspiration nor time to do any reasonable studio work lately, but today I decided to fool around a bit with more heavier soundscapes combined with orchestral elements. I guess the main influences for this piece are Ihsahn, Hardingrock and Wintersun:
27.12. - I've listened to Nujabes lately and decided to produce a short trip-hop virtual EP Dharma Armada. It should be available on Jamendo soon: Dharma Armada @ Jamendo. Hope you enjoy it! Preview the album by listening to the track "Children of Sound":
