(Electro-improv album with Edward Ka-Spel.) Ed. of 300 numbered copies. Ulkomaalaiset means 'Foreigners' in Finnish. The name was decided upon in a truly democratic way as all found the word to be a beautiful one. Martin Heuser: piano Alena Boikova: Drums, percussion, electronics Edward Ka-Spel: keyboards, electronics, small indescribable objects. Edward Ka-Spel united with Alena Boikova and Martin Heuser in Finland to herald the coming of Spring and managed to paint several startling tone poems that reflect this sense of Ulkimaalaiset. The trio settings were improvised with an intimacy, conveying both the beauty and loneliness of exploring a strange, unpopulated place. Sometimes Heuser's piano plays against Ka-Spel's and Bikova's electronics with the quiet subtlety and austere sweetness of a more musical John Cage/David Tudor collaboration. 2 tracks. BTLM. 2008.
