Rajapïnta

Rajapïnta was formed by Niko Skorpio and Ibrahim Terzíc to experiment with electronic sound in live and studio setting. Active from 2002 to 2007, the duo performed actively in Finland and did an extensive amount of studio recording sessions. Two collections of recordings were produced to document this period.

Press clips

“Rajapinta doesn’t opt for the true all out wall of noise, but rather make a sharp combination of floating samples, letting them bounce up and down the scale, thus creating quite a lively set of music. Plus it’s not all noise that rings around here. They know how to pull back and put on a softer tune. Heavy duty musique concrete, turntable madness and enough computer plug ins to create a hard disk crash, it all kind of makes great sense here.” – Frans de Waard / Vital Weekly

“The tracks are brilliant in sound and it makes a Class-A amplifier struggle: Impressively layered sound-collages and noisescapes. And it’s all just a sample from hundreds of hours of work and experiments.” – Gothtronic

“This is not easy-listening music; in fact, very little about this release is easy to come to terms with – it is erratic, unsettling and more than a little frightening in its confrontational intensity. But it is nevertheless a monumental piece of modulated feedback set into sonic sculpture that makes no excuses for its avant-garde obscurity and absolute lack of mainstream appeal.” … “Its creators may be certifiably insane, but they know how to wrench every last nuance out of each tortured, snarling sample before chaining it into place with discordant, unexpected sequencing.” – Connexion Bizarre
