Underwater It is Aino’s first piano solo album over the past 20 years. Recorded “when the outside world was still and silent,” the composer immersed himself “into a boundless free space, in a flexible and parallel dimension, without outside interference.”
The result was “short forms, almost songs, written all at once on the piano”. The sound is also the result of research, the artist asserts: “I searched for an accurate sound that corresponds to the expressiveness of this music, soft, warm and deep. I wanted a piano that speaks and sings.”
