heh. is there a thread / post on here that talks about the scale? i mean, i get that it's different and it sounds cool and is based on pulsar souls or whatever, but i'd like to know some more technical / music theory stuff.

I seem to recall quite a few people talking about it, and a few articles and interviews linked explaining it. But I don't recall how far back (which page etc).

Having read this now, two weeks or so after having first heard Alexi Perälä's "Mental Union" and parts of "The Colundi Sequence Vol. 1", I will have to consider well if I want to continue supporting something like this. Whoever compared it to a cult was accurate. I recommend anyone to reconsider too whether they want to be associated to something like this. There are past precedents. And something else just came to mind. About two years ago, Richard D. James was interviewed by the Guardian, where he implied that the September 11 terrorist attacks were carried out by the US government. It may not be connected, but you cannot deny that there is now not an imminent risk to their work, where their music is being compromised by these supposed inspirations leading to closing down a relevant label, plans to purchase land to build a community and who knows what else.

was listenning to the last legowelt release on new york haunted and...this track remind me colundi vibes things...:

https://newyorkhaunted.bandcamp.com/track/nyh80-04-coverti-world-pier-schateiland

what do you think?

 

I hear what you mean, I think it's more of a case of being inspired by the same sources (I mean Jeff Mills, Robert Hood, etc.). This new Legowelt sounds very influenced by Unit Moebius again this time too, which is good.

That interview is hilarious. Especially the end, its like he is worried he may not have come off as crazy enough to drum up publicity so he keeps adding more and more mad stuff. Contrast this to the bit when the interviewer manages to dispassionately and pretty accurately describe the Colundi sound with a few touchstones, demystifying it and making Aleksi sound even crazier.

And the bit when he admits he doesn't even know how Grant arrived at the sequence, I can just imagine a room with arcane books, skull candles, compasses & protractors scattered about amid a lot of spliff smoke.

 

Take everything the Rephlex crew says with a pinch of salt, the are longtime masters of cryptic promotion and it seems with Colundi the have found fantastic music and a nice little gimmick where they can flog all kinds of bespoke bollocks, festival tickets, t-shirts etc. They are moving with the times, business-wise. And the growth of these events seem to suggest they're doing a good job.  I don't doubt the sincerity of Aleksi and Grant's intentions re:tuning experiments, and music production and the tunes speak for themself. But the stuff about uniting all world religions with IDM? call me a cynic... 

 

I would like to get to one of the Coundi events sometime to get a vibe of it myself but its so fucking weird and cult-sounding I can't convince even my most freakiest of mates to drive out the arse end of nowhere with no drugs on the hopes of some vague spiritual experience.

great, now the group is archived. i miss the old days of colundi when you could actually purchase some really good music as physical releases instead of reading mystical gibberish in a facebook group.

Maybe he bought that Scottish chapel after all, taken all of our colundi moneys and is now living the life of peace.
