"Tuusanuuskat is a collaboration between Es and Tomutonttu. The name of the project Tuusanuuskat is a play on words derived from the phrase "tuusan nuuskana", (tr. total shambles). It is a Finnish saying that is used when something has broken to a million pieces. Es is a project of Sami Sänpäkkilä, a musician, film-maker and the head of Fonal Records. Tomutonttu is a human by the name of Jan Anderzén, a visual artist and leader of the respected avant-garde sound group Kemialliset Ystävät. Toy reed streams, mutilated vocals and groovy loops of animal noise are just some of the colours used to create the whirling mess that is the lonely song of Tomutonttu. Together, they have prepared an experimental cocktail that sounds like two drunken masters of music, conducting the protons and neutrons travelling from their instruments to their skulls and back, to create a musical nucleus. The CD and vinyl packaging both display Fonal's customary attention to detail. Both include a striped acetate film, that when placed over the cover, creates an animated sequence of images. The illusion works on the persistence of vision principle. The covers are designed and produced by Jari Suominen (of fellow Fonal recording artists Jarse and Shogun Kunitoki)." (label info)
