http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajatuslapsi

Very interesting early synth recording by the Finnish synth pioneer. 
He played with different dance and rock bands in the 60's and early 70's.
 Then the progressive rock bands: Tasavallan Presidentti (1974, 1990, 1995) and Wigwam (1974–1975, 1977, 2001-) and the singer Hector's bands. 
The ethnic flavoured Finnish Lappish music, joik sung by Nils-Aslak Valkeapää was his most interesting period.
 The soundscapes in this record is Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze
 influenced synth music. Long improvisatoric melodies and moods.

Eastern influenced Turangalila (Love Song) is one
of the most important symphonic works in the post
war European art music.
Messiaen (1908-1992) uses very colorful orchestra,
there is even the primitive synthesizer Ondes Martenot
and interesting eastern modes and rhythms.

Will be performed in Helsinki in 22. march '17
