**500 copies** Syntetisaattori Musiikkia Kuopiosta is the second solo work of Ilpo Väisänen under his own name since 2001’s Asuma. 180g black vinyl record inlayed into high quality 5-color printed heavy cardboard envelope with additional golden hot foil pressing. Finnish experimental producer Ilpo Väisänen, formerly of the legendary duo Pan Sonic, made Syntetisaattori Musiikkia Kuopiosta as the second album he's crafted under his own name, after 2001's Mego-issued Asuma. (He also released a full-length through Editions Mego last year, using the alias I-LP-O In Dub.) This one has him linking up again with Kvitnu, a Ukrainian-born label now based in Vienna. Kvitnu hosted Väisänen and Mika Vainio for a Pan Sonic performance in Kiev in 2009, and released a recording of that show, with the title Oksastus, in 2014. Due out in early October, Syntetisaattori Musiikkia Kuopiosta is, according to the label, "strongly connected to the place where it was written and recorded: Kuopio." It's described as "not a long album," comprising nine "very varied and rather short" tracks connected without gaps, and it'll come on limited-edition 12-inch vinyl in a sleeve with artwork using "special elements," as usual for Kvitnu.
