"There's a strong onomatopoeic element to HIK's PIKNIK. That title is to a large degree what the music sounds like. It has sharp edges and takes 90-degree turns. In its immediacy, this music sounds like recording took less time than listening to it does. This work consists of what would constitute flotsam and jetsam or even technical issues in some other musical production process. Halme, Innanen and Korpipää are dealers in waste by-product, recyclers of sound and the artful dodgers of accident. The clonk of saxophone fingerings when no wind blows into the wood, the slightly panicked yelp of the reed, a software suite going through an existential crisis... Most times these are equalized out of existence, overdubbed with the "correct" notes or bug-fixed posthaste. Not here. The Halme-Innanen-Korpipää trio turn them into some kind of post- or maybe even pre-industrial postcard, 0:26 - 6:05 at a time." -Arttu Tolonen
