Motion "Musicdisk" is the long awaited debut audio CD of Jonne Valtonen
aka Purple Motion. In the early 90s he and
PC demoscene history as musicians of the Future Crew, best known for their
"2nd reality" demo. Almost 10 years passed by, Jonne studied classic music
and founded Valtone studio
together with Timo Haanpää, working with bands or doing soundtracks for
games as well as orchestral productions for theater plays.
The CD contains 3 remakes of old classics and 9 brand new
songs. It combines the Purple Motion
trademark "demoscene" sound re-arranged and at todays level of
production quality with his talent to master different styles and to play
with them. Rock drums and e-guitars meat the unmistakable synth leads,
powerful hymns meet mellow songs and a beautiful female voice - goose bumps
people said about the CD.
The included 8 pages booklet contains interesting background information about each song.
Quote from Jonne: "It really has been a long and a hard road making this one,
3-5 years to be vaguely precise, and I´m one happy person getting all of
this finally together! The CD contains all kinds of different music styles (from
old rearranged mods to new stuff) and the one thing I've tried to keep
myself focused on (a red line, if you will) is the true spirit of tracking.
By this I mean lots of delays, block forms and of course some Purple Motion
mannerisms. I've put so much energy and heart (and money) into this CD that I
truly hope you like it! Yours, Jonne".
Purple Motion and band live at the Assembly'03, a short video is available
Acumen's ASM'03 page. The song you hear in the video is an early version of "Excerpts
from the Oceanic Suite" - before it got its name :)
