Latest releases:

kongkong - Yet Untitled, Nearly Abandoned and Removed

CDR, edition of 15 copies - release date 2.12.2021 / Released by Magma Tones
pre-UTON, free noise / drone / experimental - the 6th album from the previously unreleased recordings. This one is from Spring-Summer 2000, except the track 1 which was composed with Audacity from various sound sources (and later recorded to cassette). Various instruments were used, such as Electric Guitar (untuned, prepared), Old speakers/microphones with Effect pedals (to create drone/noise/feedback), Radio, Percussions, small Casio keyboard... and Vocals.


YKSI - Kosminen Itse 

CS, Edition of 60 copies. Released by Satatuhatta, October 2021.

"Yksi is harsh noise project by Jani Hirvonen, also known from Uton that has a career spanning 20 years of experimental music. Yksi was started already in 2006, but activated recently in 2020. On this tape Yksi delivers two longs tracks of free-flowing cosmic harsh noise, sounds resonating from within and universe beyond." - Satatuhatta



Couple of new things in works. New Gryke Pyje album (our fifth!). Uton albums, mostly recorded, just needs to be organized and mastered properly... etc. The world is going through some heavy times. Covid corruption, fascist goverments pushing people to the experimental gene therapy (what they call vaccine... and some other say it's actually a bioweapon!). Lots of propaganda and marketing strategies against the humanity. Because of all this, the music production is going differently as well.


UTON's Facebook Page is deleted, so don't try to find it anymore. It wasn't working properly, so there was no good reason to keep it rolling - because it didn't actually roll. Facebook has a strong filter system, which doesn't let all the followers to see the posts - unless if you are willing to pay, but that's not so great idea for an "underground artist". So the latest news will be now on visible here in Blogger or through the Bandcamp. Instagram is also still on, sometimes some stuff over there also; but the most essential things will be here in Blogger and in Bandcamp.
