Kepa Lehtinen - Serenade for theremin


I know we are an underground electronic music blog but we had a submission from a piano and theremin artist Kepa Lehtinen and it was an experience that we though we should share with everybody.

I have listened to theremin many times but it never attract me because of the disturbing high harmonics. However, this one, Serenade for theremin by Kepa Lehtinen is different. It is almost that the theremin in the track sees my soul and talks straight into it. It is magical.

We do advise strongly that you take a look.

"Kepa Lehtinen was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1971 and began studying music in childhood, eventually learning to play piano, synthesizers, theremin and drums. He went on to study Sound Design at Finland’s Aalto University and has since written music for many films, commercials, and TV productions. He routinely works as a composer, sound editor, and sound designer. His work has appeared in award-winning Finnish titles such as Kimmo (TV series), Almost 18 (feature film), and A Stone Left Unturned (short film). He released his first solo album, Playing Theremin, in 2018. The set combined Kepa’s impressive theremin playing with the sound of analog synths and was exceptionally well-received. Finally in this album, after beautiful and sometimes melancholic athmosphere, the last track 10 print "kontula;" is a freak combination of etheric theremin and Commodore-64 sounds which will leave the listener really upset."

Like Mercury, the planet, we are split into two. The half of us freezes in endless darkness, while the other half glitters with a perfect shade of orange under the rays of our one and only sun. We thus become the Mercurials. We live through different tones of life, swinging from ice to fire. Mercurial Tones is a music academy that seeks to unearth this cacophony of emotions so as to be able to express them without losing their overwhelming sway.
