Listen: Colundi Sequence tracks

March 2014

Stream two tracks from Aleksi Perälä's forthcoming release using the Perälä and Grant Wilson-Claridge's custom musical scale, the Colundi Sequence. Perälä and Wilson-Claridge's creation is covered by Derek Walmsley in The Wire 362.

Wilson-Claridge says of their invention: “Instead of dividing the keyboard into octaves with semitones, we have chosen specific frequencies to work around... The scale is 128 resonant frequencies chosen via experimentation and philosophy, each relating to a specific human bio-resonance, or psychology, traditional mysticism or belief, physics, astronomy, maths, chemistry.”

“I’ve always felt somewhat frustrated or restricted with a standard keyboard," says Perälä, "I started exploring different TET [equal temperament scales] in 2006. “The Moon” [the last track on Perälä’s 2010 Boom Blaster album] was the first one to come out of those experiments.”

Aleksi Perälä’s The Colundi Sequence 1&2/Mental Union/Ovuca Bonus is self- released in April.


I am so anxiously awaiting this release. I plan on downloading all of it digitally. This will be possible right? Huge fan Aleski! Thanks for being such an inspiration.

I think this music is wonderful, it doesn't matter how or why, it is music of the highest order.

How will we know how to obtain it?

Ap's output is remarkable - Colundi level 14 releashed later this month - sep 2015
