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.
