Available at Bandcamp


Since "Atonality Appreciation Society" tape is sold out from me (you may find some isolated copies around the world if you're lucky), it is now available in digital format at Bandcamp.
Also I'm running on a very few last copies of "Accident Worship" CDr. That is now also available at Bandcamp.

Gear-a-holic part 17


For a long time, a new pedal in the house. Well, bought it some time ago at the A Place To Bury Strangers gig - that's why my copy is a limited edition tour version. Nice, dirty sounding, not-your-typical-reverb pedal. Works quite nice with synthesizer and field recordings, especially when paying attention to dry/wet -relation.



Salakapakka Sound System is now on Bandcamp. Next release (whether it be from SSS, HBS or Itsensäsyöjät) will be either physical tape or Bandcamp release (for minimum cost). God bless.

SALAKAPAKKA SOUND SYSTEM - Unlit Corners of the Universal Emptiness


Long time silence and suddenly without warning here is new SSS offering called "Unlit Corners of the Universal Emptiness". Honestly, I was working on way much more ambient album but - as usual - it turned out to be more noisy than intended. I call it harsh black ambient. This time it is only digital format - no physical copies exist. Enjoy... or not.

1. Man versus Moon   (4:12)
2. Apollo 666   (7:58)
3. Panic!   (8:11)
4. Power Failure   (5:00)
5. Last Ten Minutes   (10:00)

Hear / download individual tracks (wav/mp3) at or download zipped mp3 package from mediafire or listen/download mp3 files from Free Music Archive or listen/download (mp3/wav) from Bandcamp.
As usual, I strongly suggest downloading WAV-files instead of lossy mp3's.

Hey folks. Nowadays I'm on Instagram under user name marko_vierikko - go check it out.



OK, folks. At last, I've struggled my problems with this release and it's ready to go.  Itsensäsyöjät is my new moniker for more electro oriented tracks. More beats, less random noise.
Hear / download compressed or uncompressed sound files at, also as mp3 files at Free Music Archive.

Split release with profilic Ecuadorian noise moniker Armenia available at Bandcamp. I think there could be CDr release sometime in future, and I think I sent a couple more tracks than there is available at the Bandcamp page but that's totally beyond me. Check Bizarre Audio Arts web page for CDr copy. Don't bother asking me for copies since I don't have none.

new year 2017


Comrades, ahoy! I have been too quiet lately on blogosphere, I feel like a dropout. Anyway, happy new year to you.
Itsensäsyöjät debut will come... I promise. I just wasn't happy with the results on some tracks so I have to remake some parts or make completely new tracks. That's what you get for going 'too experimental'.
New Salakapakka Sound System split coming in 2017 --- hopefully. More info whenever that materializes.
Just back from Thailand with some field recordings (quite few this time).

Just when you/me/everyone else recovered from latest SSS split release and Hazarda debut EP, here comes a new full length free download from Salakapakka Sound System's evil twin Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo. "Smut Babylon" is a tribute to the underbelly of visceral non-cinema and scum celluloid.

"Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo tekee epämusiikkiaan kunnianosoituksena roskaelokuvalle ja muulle oudolle kuvamateriaalille. Smut Babylon on pääosin outosävyistä, ohuehkoa ja hyökkäävää noisea joka alussa lähentelee ambientin rajoja. Kuuntelukokemus on lievästi sanoen haastava, sillä sisällön äänenvoimakkuus aaltoilee hyvin hiljaisesta korvia helposti riipivään. Yksinkertaisen pinnan alta löytyy joka tapauksessa kiinnostavia sävyjä ja rakenteita niin että paketin kappaleet eivät jää pelkäksi (epä)taidekohinaksi. Teoskokonaisuus onnistuu parhaalle noiselle ominaisessa “uuden hiljaisuuden” luomisessa hälyn avulla, niin että kuulijasta tuntuu oudolta kun sirinä yhtäkkiä katoaakin pois. Varsinkin Ultra Sonic Suicide Captured Live on TV, joka on hyvällä tavalla kuin noisefiltterin läpi ajettua Troumia, on tästä erinomainen esimerkki.​"

Track titles are:
1. Dark corners of the audiovisual entertainment
2. Ultra sonic suicide captured live on tv
3. Snake feast
4. Man gets punished by a dog
5. Asian shockumentary galore
6. Smut Babylon

Salakapakka Sound System & Sodadosa - split


Salakapakka Sound System joined forces with Indonesian noise unit Sodadosa for a split Bandcamp EP. Result is a fascinating mixture of found object brutality and screeching noisy ambient with Asian influences.
Download it free from Sodadosa bandcamp page.

HAZARDA BRUO SONSISTEMO - Eurovision Song Contest 2016 EP


Here is a debut release of SSS sidekick project Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo called "Eurovision Song Contest 2016", being just as silly and stupid as the title suggests. After this year's Eurovision song contest I thought 'what if I layer those songs on top of each other and slightly treat them somehow...?'. Here's the result: four tracks of uneasy listening hodge-podge experience devoid of any compositional structure or talent.

This time I present you my new solo side project called Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo which is an output for my ad hoc sound experiments which quite doesn't fit into Salakapakka Sound System repertoire. Stylistically it can be harsh & loud, quiet ambience, structured or abstract, electronic/acoustic/electroacoustic/field recordings or whatever. No borderlines, no insight, no entertainment, no intelligence... no shit.
First release in next post.



Running on last copies of "Atonality Appreciation Society" tape so if you want yours, be quick. Otherwise you can ask for it, "Barbed Wire Boogie" & "Accident Worship" from Freak Animal, Drone Records, Mask of the Slave, Mirgilus Sicilorum, Cursed Tapes, Gravity Swarm and Sun & Moon Records.
Two exciting new split releases on their way (one recycled tape and one bandcamp release) - more about them when they are out.
I am also working on two new side projects, more about them later.

Vietnam field recording mix


This time something different: a collage of recordings I made in Vietnam recently. There's street sounds, announcements, radio & tv, park karaoke, music shows etc.


and another compilation track


Salakapakka Sound System track Henki ei kulje is featured on a Piety Circuit Productions net compilation "Oral Compass" featuring tracks using the human sound as a sound source. Get the whole package or just listen to individual tracks at PCP bandcamp page.

Vietnam part 2


As usual, on vacation in foreign lands I tend to carry a small portable recorder with me all the time. You never know what once-in-a-life sound happening is waiting just behind the corner. Vietnam offered me a couple of interesting possibilities of recording local music.Two times I went to a local traditional music shows in the old quarter of Hoi An (an old coastal town in the middle of Vietnam). Even being a bit touristry affairs, they were still fun to watch and listen. I really like the look and sound of traditional Vietnamese instrument dan bau (propably getting one myself).On one occasion I was spending evening in the local park in HCMC when some blokes were launching their karaoke machines. "Oh, there's gonna be an out-of-tune western pop standard time", I thought first but I was happy to hear that they were karaoking some traditional music. Now that was something I never heard before. I even attended a big local free outdoor heavy metal/rock -concert with Vietnamese bands performing. Nothing original there, most bands sounding like Nightwish, Stratovarius or nu-metal rip-offs but still fun to see that a bit harder rock music is alive and well in Vietnam where some art forms are still struggling with censorship restrictions.Otherwise the vacation was filled with searching for good places to eat (there was plenty of them), inspecting the surroundings (found one of the ugliest beaches I've ever seen - see the photo with sand bags and a drowned dog carcass) and interesting bulleting boards and signs, visiting ancient ruins of My Son & some temples... and of course hunting for records which I wrote about in my previous post.[...]

back home from Vietnam with some vinyls


Just got back home from a vacation to Vietnam with some field recordings (musical and non-musical) and a bunch of beaten & battered 60's & 70's vinyl records.As some of you know, I am a big fan of old SE Asian pop music with literally hundreds of vintage vinyl records (mostly 7-inches from Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore & Indonesia) lying on my shelf. I love the mixture of western and local influences especially if sung in their native language. Sadly the condition of records is usually quite bad and many vinyls seem to be pressed on bad quality material in the first place resulting in a situation where even the clean looking vinyl has a fair amount of surface noises. Compared to Japanese 2nd hand 60's vinyls which sound even better than many present-day releases. But, as John Peel once said it when someone complained about the vinyl noises compared to CD: "Listen, mate, *life* has surface noise." --- Now there were wise words from a wise man, period.My ears have pretty much accustomed to vinyl crackling and I am getting to sadly accept the idea that many Asian vinyls are mishandled or even destroyed for different reasons: for the lack of personal appreciation or for more sad reasons, which brings me to the case of Vietnam. I have had a couple of Vietnamese 7" records before my vacation but it seems that they are quite hard to find even in the discogs or ebay, and when you do - the prices are something that make me think twice. Besides, two times I have bought a record which has a wrong record in a sleeve - albeit both being Vietnamese.Seems that during Vietnamese war there was a lot of record production, but when yanks flew home and commies took power a lot of people hid their records underground (literally) or destroyed them in fear of getting harassed by authorities. Holding a western-minded cultural products might have caused serious trouble for the whole family. Some blogger noticed that selling these records is basically still forbidden (but rarely controlled) so maybe that is one reason why you cannot find them easily. So when we decided to spend a vacation in Vietnam I had no big expectations for finding any vintage records even though we spent a week in Ho Chi Minh City (aKa HCMC aKa Saigon) where it should be the easiest affair. Luckily I did my homework well and knew that there are two places in HCMC which I should visit: Dan Sinh Market (selling shitload of 'The American War' memorabilia - mostly replicas or fakes made to look like authentic stuff) & Le Cong Kieu street (a small street packed with antique sellers... fakes mostly). Dan Sinh was a disappointment. Visiting there in the morning most sellers were just opening their stalls and the one guy who had a couple of chinese records asked for a ridiculous sum which I had no intention of discussing... they were not that interesting anyway.Then I headed to Le Cong Kieu and BINGO! There was it. Couple of shops which had vinyls but it was shocking to see their condition and how they stored them in the first place. First there was a lady who had approximately 1 meter stack thrown over a kitchen stool mostly without covers or placed in wrong covers. Not much interesting there, mostly some chinese unknown stuff, old shellacs and western jazz.Next place was run by a friendly old man who had two stacks of sleeveless or otherwise badly protected records stuffed in a dusty shelf. He helped me to pick them to the floor and every time I picked something up, there was a flood of dust, sand and[...]

another compilation track


SSS is included in a new Piety Circuit netlabel's compilation "Blight of the Beat", get it at Bandcamp.
SSS track is called Turntables are turned using the sound of... you guessed it: turntable.

Gear-a-holic part 16


Some modular things I've bought in a recent couple of months:
Doepfer A-118 Noise + random volt generator. White, blue & red noise. Choose the best, or choose them all! Plus a random voltage output. HNW insanity.
Doepfer A-124 VCF-5 Wasp Filter using the similar circuit as old 70's Wasp synthesizer. Truly excellent filter, propably the best I've used so far.
Doepfer A-136 DIS Distortion/Waveshaper. Shapes your sound wave into complete mess sounding really fucked up.
Doepfer A-189-1 VBM Bit Modifier for bit crushing etc. I got this just yesterday so cannot say much more except feeding in a colored noise can sound truly harsh.
