Product Notes

'Diamond Mountains' is the second solo album of Samuli Kristian Saastamoinen, a Finnish composer and guitarist, who has profiled earlier by his trio Bogdo Ula. On this album all instruments, other than guitars, are programmed or played with a computer software. Guitars are played through Fractal Audio Axe-Fx Ultra guitar processor. No amps are used. The musical ambition of Samuli Kristian is realizing in two ways. Free improvisation is the main concept of his band Bogdo Ula. He enjoys the improvisational freedom, the moment of communication with his band members. On the other hand, to work in a home studio, composing and playing guitar or piano parts for his compositions, is a big challenge and a deep desire. Samuli Kristian wishes to communicate with the listener bringing an overall personal touch in his music. 'Diamond Mountains' is an example of the melodic side of Samuli Kristian's musical talent. On this album he uses more ambient and new age style soundscapes in his compositions than on the previous album 'Call of the Sun'. Erik Wøllo's and Patrick O'Hearn's electronic music, and Harold Budd's minimalism on piano, has been a source of inspiration. Actually, on this album piano as an instrument is more in the spotlight than guitar.
