"the wonderful dichotomy of the pairing such obviously artificial sound with instruments so, so real…"
Greetings, dear readers. Discogkahvi steps forward to the 41st column, covering Kahvi Collective’s 41st release, “Here is Where Wisdom Comes In”. Way different than your typical electronic-bias Kahvi track, we get a little epic sounding world-music. In the words of Kahvi itself: “In the immortal words of monty python, `and now for something completely different` best describes this audio treat from crud. south american flutes mixed with traditional finnish instruments meets sequencing and analog synthesis. refreshingly different!” I particularly enjoyed the sweeping feel of this tune.

Lazy percussion meets nasal, deep horn sounds, and sparkling string sounds, possibly an acoustic guitar, possibly something else. Nonetheless, it’s epic – I’m reaching for my shield and sword now. Nice flute work around 1:10 – it’s got that world music feel, but lacks the gift-shop manufacturedness. By the beginning of the second minute, there’s some howling synths, it’s still a Kahvi Collective song, but it still feels epic, a spirit-journey or something. More delicately-phrased flutage past minute three. Some sine-wave synthesizer work at 3:50ish. Again, I can only emphasize the wonderful dichotomy of the pairing such obviously artificial sound with instruments so, so real. The comparison to progessive rock might be apt. Some kind of chromatic percussion (Like a dulcimer or celesta, I think) ’round the five minute mark. The track climaxes, then begins to fade past 7:30…
