Tomutonttu is a Finnish chap who was Christened Jan Anderzn but somewhere along the way he decided to start constructing frighteningly bizarre & compulsive sound vistas that often call to mind an acid fried trip in a humid jungle. As far as noise & avant garde music goes, this man's warped imagination has produced two fascinating aural stews 'Tomutonttu' & 'Tomutonto', originally released on limited wax for the Beta-Lactam Ring & Ultyra Eczema labels, and now Fonal offer you the chance to consume both out of print instalments in the more afforgable digital realm. You discover screeing bursts of fuzzing discord can easily give way to UFO noises, gibbering animal caterwauling, squeaky toy techno rhythms, abused reed instrumentation & trippy vocal manipulation. The thing is, these recordings are more therapeutic & gratifying than abrasive, both amusing & fascinating. It may sound like bedlam at times but he instills some structure & flow into the bonkers journey. For lovers of astral drone, hazy hauntological interludes & cerebral ambient sounds there's countless passages of interest amongst the well measured insanity. I have to say both volumes are quite a profound listen but this musical rumpus works on many levels, there really has been a heck of a lot of thought & love gone into this. At times you'll think you're going a bit mad - in a nice way - but no more so than on Black Dice's more out-there moments. I actually find these CDs more interesting sonically & musically than the majority of the twisted party yanks output. Definately of interest to fans of Animal Collective's more bizarre esoteric moments!
