Mark Hakonen-Meddings – Vapaa


Today Agniworld’s eye is pointed at another Somehow Recordings release – an album by Mark Hakonen-Meddings, which is called “Vapaa”, and contains 5 tracks, beginning with the letter “V”. It starts with “Viiva” – a drony set of pleasant and thoughtful piano flashes against the indistinct and blurred ambient background. The next track, “Vilja”, is more soothing and atmospheric, it has a fine-grained and glimmering structure, as if it consists of unknown radiant substance, producing some kind of spiritual relaxation and inner cosiness. “Virta” is predominantly bound to low level of sounding, also having fuss in between. It is more like a sudden break in the middle of the album, a time out for further acoustic experience. “Veri” is distinguished by its pulsing warmth and tenderness, bringing the listener closer to inner peace and solitude; luscious chords, smooth transitions and overall feeling of mental transcendence surely will lead you to balanced and quiet state of mind. “Voima” represents the logical conclusion for the album, resembling a kind of awakening from a soft and magic trance, giving us the evidence of the fact, that this music belongs to meditational art, where both the artist and the listener are engaged into this mild abyss of fantasy. Here you can hear guitar sounds together with synthesizer, that together create a strikingly bizarre soundscape. I think, that everyone will carry his own peculiar things out of this album – listening to such works of this kind will definitely benefit your imagination and perception of the world. So, join the meditation of Mark Hakonen-Meddings with his album “Vapaa”.
