Hello there! So at this point, I've been making music for just under 9 years. If you're at least a semi-active follower of mine, chances are you know about The Santtu Pesonen Project and MFG38, which are the two so-called "main" monikers I make music under - the former being my metal solo project, and … Continue reading Introducing Hekkräiser!
It is with extremely loud squeals of excitement that I hereby announce the release of The Santtu Pesonen Project's 10th album, The Fall! The Fall features just under 43 minutes worth of arguably the most prog-influenced music I've written under The Project yet. Among the single Crawl that was released last year, it contains 6 … Continue reading The Fall is released!
Howdy! It's been a while since the last progress update on The Fall, mostly because it was making none, but now that things have picked up the pace again, I figured I should write one. First off, there was a slight change of plans. I scrapped one of the songs entirely and replaced it with … Continue reading The Fall progress update (maybe out soon???)
Happy Valentine's Day! Seeing as it's been another long(ish) while since any updates on my ongoing projects, I felt the need to write up a brief update post on their progress. To be entirely truthful, I didn't do much towards advancing MFG38's Average Adventure 2 or The Fall for a couple of months following some … Continue reading Valentine’s Day general update post
This announcement is going to be a little less ceremonious than usual as far as my music releases are concerned, but I wanted to let you know that I just put out a new Gallery of Harmonies album, appropriately titled Gallery of Harmonies: Vol. 6 - 2019-2020. The latest entry in my ongoing series of … Continue reading New music release: “Gallery of Harmonies: Vol. 6”
Since I just finished up a new track for The Santtu Pesonen Project's upcoming album The Fall today, and it's been a while since I wrote any updates, I figured I'd do one now regarding the status of said project. Basically, the track I finished for The Fall today was the 4th out of 7, … Continue reading Progress update on The Fall
Hello again! So yeah, I released a new single through The Santtu Pesonen Project last night. And with it having been out for just over 15 hours, I figure it's a good time to also announce The Project's 10th album, The Fall! The Fall is going to be my darkest, most personal, most progressive record … Continue reading New single “Crawl” + Announcing The Fall!
Another couple of months have passed in relative radio silence, so here's a quick update on how my current projects are going. First off, The Santtu Pesonen Project's next album is doing quite well. Out of the 7 tracks currently in the pipeline, 5 have been finished on the writing side, and the last two … Continue reading General update on a couple of things
Howdy! With 2019 drawing to a close in a couple of weeks, I figured I'd write a short(ish) update post on what you can expect to see from me in the first year of the new decade. First off, let's discuss the projects I've already been working on: the Doom mapset Gomorrah and the as-of-yet-unannounced … Continue reading What to expect in 2020
Here we are with another mini-lesson, this time detailing a music poduction technique that I utilized on Gallery of Harmonies: Vol. 5. This technique will (hopefully) make the bassline in your track sound slightly more substantial. The first thing to do is "doubling" your bassline - if it's in MIDI, this is easily done by … Continue reading Mini-lesson: adding extra bass to your bass
