Aaltopiiri Tracklist. 2. Vaihtovirta Lyrics. More Pan Sonic albums. Katodivaihe, Cathodephase.

Stark, and stretched out like the frozen tundra of Pan Sonic's native Finland, Aaltopiiri journeys along the strange, twisting paths of a minimalist and intensely ambiguous digital landscape. The band's approach, like on 1999's A, has few connections with traditional concepts of rhythm, instead luxuriating in the ambient netherworlds inhabited by Aphex Twin on sparse records like Selected Ambient Works, Vol. 2, or the music of composer Philip Glass.

Just two weeks removed from the winter solstice, Finnish programming duo Pan Sonic released Aaltopiiri, an album which appears to salute the long Scandinavian night and spacious tundra where Mika Vainio and Ilpo Väisänen call home. Pan Sonic may not sample its atmosphere directly - much of the music is likely of completely digital origins - but the heavy percussive echoes scattered throughout the disc can't help but sound reminiscent of nearly endless winter near the Arctic Circle.

Studio album by Pan Sonic. Aaltopiiri appears in the following lists: Music Genre: Pop/Rock. Music Mood: Cerebral.

AALTOPIIRI is an album filled with alluring, ambient frequencies and hypnotic rhythms. Tracks like Kone and Kierto stutter and groove, while elsewhere Aanipaa and Liuos provide lush, addictive pulses. They are often asked what the track & album titles actually mean when translated into English, but as they often invent or combine Finnish words the "definitions" become quite vague. For example, a legendary maybe mythological low creeping mist from a particular area of Finland or, a variant technological term for a certain aspect of a early radio wave experiments.
