Live and not so loud

September 8th, 2010

Keikka @ Belly

So nice to get to play some live shows next month.. it’s been a while.
7.10. Bar Loose, Helsinki
16.10. Liberte, Helsinki

The psychedelic picture above is from our first show at Belly, Helsinki, last year. The band sounds a bit different these days. Inspired by our ultra quiet sister band Nopat (me, Samuli and Janne play in both bands) we’ve been looking for ways to bring down the volume when we play. The solution has been, well, mostly turning down the volume. As well as replacing the bass drum with a cardboard box..

It’s strange hearing mistakes in my playing I’ve always made but couldn’t make out before because of all the noise. But it feels good to go home after rehearsal and not have your ears ringing..

It’s like, this is the way music should be made and heard.

Earplugs suck.

PS. Don’t worry, we still rock a bit. Kinda.


For starters, some good news

Hello, my name is Petri. I welcome you to this site, dedicated to the music of yours truly and my comrades.

The first full length Wonderminers album is trying to find it’s way out to the world. Two years in the making, the recording was finally finished this summer. Even in it’s roughly mixed state, I’m super proud of it. And once a suitable record label is found, you’ll get to hear it too.

As a little taster, the first track of the album is available for download, starting now!
