RESONANCE (FMR-Records)

”'Resonance' features Janne Tuomi on solo percussion, recorded at the Church of Kuhmalahti, with all pieces composed by Tuomi. This is all acoustic percussion music and it is superbly recorded. This music is closer to classical percussion music in its sound and it is consistently thoughtful and engaging. On “Kunlun I”, Janne concentrates on just a gong and comes up with some impressive and mysterious results. A most impressive offering from a young master-percussionist that we ill be hearing more from in the near future.” Bruce Lee Gallanter Downtown Music Gallery

“...There are nine tracks and the order presents a nice package of contrasting textures and styles...
