    Showreel comments please


    I've put together a "showreel", downloadable here:


    Almost all orchestral instruments are GPO, the solo violin is Strad. There are of course lots of other instruments, also some played live. My site is only in finnish for the time being, sorry. Here's a list of the studio gear and software:


    Here you can find some longer demos, again only in finnish:


    Comments about my music are welcome, I really aim to get better in this!

    cool stuff man. it was an interesting and diverse mix of music. you obviously have a lot of areas in music that you feel comfortable with. my favorite section was the second half - more specifically the east asian piece, the bluegrass piece, and the near east piece. i would like to hear the full versions of some of these. look forward to some complete posts from you.

    Quite an incredibly diverse mix, Jouni! I'm dizzy!

    All of it excellent, too... a highly polished and professional reel.

    I hope you'll also submit some individual works for us to
    listen to, as well.

    My best,

    One aperatif after another. The reel is fun to listen to and the juxtaposition of styles is great fun. I agree that I look forward to some work from you which explores one or more of these delightful excerpts.

    So many different styles and all nicely done and nicely produced. I kind of wish that each clip was a little longer, never the less, it did give a good idea of the extreme range of music you do. I have a hard enough time working with just one genre.....

    Hi all, thanks for the positive comments! I've done a lot of music for theatre, also music for some commercials and product videos. I've also produced music for other artists. Quite recently I did my first movie score, nothing too big, just a 18 min student film (zero pay...) . But I had so much fun doing it! It was the first audiovisual production where I actually could score to -picture- instead of just a script. I am trying to get more of that kind of work (like so many others out there...), preferably for a reasonable pay at some point ;-)

    If you have a faster connetion do download a part of the movie which is music from start to end (VMW Windows media file / 2,57 mins / 11 megs). There's some sentimental stuff at the beginning, the end is a nightmare scene.

    Thanks again, I hope I will also get some critic, as that's where one can learn.
