Description

Es - A Love Cycle

The second album from Es aka. Sami Sänpäkkilä. On this album the main source of sound is three turntables bought from fleamarkets 10 dollars a piece.

Those and a few effects are the only soundsources that have been used. The athmosphere maintains its course of melancholy through these romantic, and at times heartbreaking sound collages. The adjacent loops that you hear begin to create new dimensions and layers of sound. And when you listen to the song you can almost hear that forgotten melody that you have always searched for in your heart. Recogniceable (and acknowledged) exemplariness can be heard when thinking of such artists as the loop 'n' scratch artist Philip Jeck and Terry Riley.

Reviews

Corpus hermeticum mail-order catalogue
Finnish one-man-band presents a suite of pieces that seem to be largely made of samples of old records and their surface noise, manipulated into ungainly new shapes far from music as we knew it. The results are in part bizarre but beguiling, in part dreamlike and relaxing. Recommended puzzlement for insomniacs.
Bruce Russel/Corpus hermeticum


Aquarius Records
For "A Love Cycle" Sami Sanpakkila focuses not on guitar but on the use of loops from scratchy old records, reminding us very strongly of the work of AQ-fave Philip Jeck! It's a very pretty and hypnotic album, also very melancholic and at points darkly ominous. The record crackle is a real presence, its sound seemingly as significant as the music in the looped records' grooves. Very nice.
Allan / Aquarius Records

Broken Face #10
The sounds conveyed on "A Love Cycle" are unquestionably warmer [than on Flick], but the biggest difference is perhaps that the previously heard guitar-oriented soundscapes are to a large extent replaced by a jagged kind of corrosive digital damage.
Mats Gustafsson
