about

tainnos is a finnish sound artist previously known under the no Xivic alias. as no Xivic, he's had a couple of cds, a 7" on drone records and also a 3"cd-r on taâlem ("i do blame you" in 2004, still available!).
tainnos first proposed this track for our "homework - year 2" compilation last year but we've thought it was too good not to be released on its own.
"kierto" (circulation) is an audio journey through the evolution of life on this planet. from nothingness to beasts of the wild. from early humans to civilizations controlled by artificial intelligence. everything that has a beginning, has an ending. in the end there are only swarms of flies left and the circle of life and death starts again.
expect dark soundscapes at their very best...


reviews:
vital weekly 1150
Henkka Kyllönen is the man behind Tainnos. Before he was known as Xivic and sometimes as No Xivic (see Vital Weekly 426 and 609). As Tainnos he does something new and I guess a bit more refined. 'Kierto' means, apparently, 'circulation' and it is about the evolution of life on our planet, starting with a few bangs (big or small, I leave that to you) and then evolves into a fine piece of drone music, growing from dark to light and towards the end, of course I should add, it is all a bit darker again, with that slow bang on a repeat mission. Maybe the big bang will ultimately tear us to pieces? Is that the message? Maybe it is, maybe it isn't; perhaps it is about something else all together... at one point I thought to recognize a swarm of human voices singing over the swamp, into the mist of time; a trip in magical world? Whatever it is, it sounds wonderful. (FdW)
