Music: Avalkis – When It Is Raining from My Arms (2001)

cd_whenitisrainingThis is one of my most psychedelic songs from 2001. Yet coherent in melody. I used to play around with unconventional various rhythms; I’d like to get back there.

I have called this style of my music from this period as “Renewing Power Experience”.

From the album World Lies in Leaves (2001). This is the first time I publicly release this song on my web page.

This song was on my Narcosis the Cat Meets the Flapsticks comic book album’s (2010) music CD as When It Is Raining from My Paws. The CD companion featured ambient, avantgarde and psychedelic music to be listened to while merging into the comic book fantasy world.


Part 1: When Reality Comes Along
Part 2: Did It Come to You
` ` When it is calm reality comes along; then you can hear me calling true… Long time ago since I left everything where it was, still now it is raining from my arms; for the first time in world – it makes all come to life. ´ ´

Music: Avalkis – Scorpion (2016)

single_avalkis-scorpionHere’s my newest song – a guitar ballad, called “Scorpion” (2016). Hope you like it!

This is the first released song with my new artist name Avalkis. The track will be in the upcoming album Tree of Love – and Other Ballads from the Darkened Sun. Featuring f.ex. acoustic/electric guitar and piano ballads, celt and medieval inspired songs.

Thanks to Matti, Hanne and Onni for our recent live band sessions and jammings that inspired me to finish this song faster than I would have otherwise! (There might be a rock version with our band at some point when we have time with our busy schedules.)

UPDATE: Due to request from my good friend and artist Joonas here is the whole “Scorpion” song with the ambient intro that originally belonged with it :).

Here are the lyrics:

AVALKIS: Scorpion – a Sting of Hope                                          Song and lyrics © 2016 Jukka Eronen
1. If I find you, will you be my true…
   in this life, or the next
  Will you be my, guiding angel
   that I’ve yearned, for so many years
2. A light that always shines, please come back to my loving arms
   I have come for… your love
  That is true… pure and beyond
   Will you know me… There’s so much to feel
3. I have a scorpion, crawling down my neck
   it’s trying to sting, but it cannot hurt
   ’cause there’s an antidote, running in my veins
   It is your love, that I can always trust
4. I don’t know where… else to turn to
   When I am home sick, far away
  A distant stranger, becoming a friend
   I have become, someone I once knew
5. Will you follow, will you see me
   Do you know us, there’s so much to learn
   I am here to stay, not giving any lessons
   still you’re the treasure, I almost gave away
       ” Can I give you, all that I have
         for what I am, and what’s left of me
         Can I give you, all that I have
         for what I am, and what’s left of me ”

PS. The original working title for this song was “A Seed of Hope” which referred to “Acid of Hope”. Because it’s interesting to note that the base for this song is originally an acid trance song I composed in 1998. That might explain some of the sounds and melodies appearing in the final build-up :). Also a certain 1980s/1990s nostalgia is present. I will release the trance version too later.

AVALKIS: Skorpioni                                          Laulu ja lyriikat © 201617 Jukka Eronen
1. Jos mä löydän, sinut vielä
    tässä elämässä, tai seuraavassa
    haluatko olla, valo elämäni
    jota kaivannut oon, kaikki vuodet nää
2. Valo joka, aina loistaa
    olen tullut, sitä hakemaan
    rakkauttasi vain, joka kestää
    haluatko tuntea minut, olen vielä elävä
3. Skorpioni, kulkee niskassain
   se aikoo pistää, mut’ satuttaa ei voi
    sillä vastalääke, on sydämessäin’
    se on rakkautesi vain, oi armain
4. En voi tietää, minne mennä
    kun eksynyt mä, kaukomailla oon
    Vieras astuu, ovesta sisään
    itseni mä tapaan, vuosien jälkeen taas
5. Seuraatko mua, haluatko nähdä
    meidät vielä, on paljon opittavaa
    Aion pysyä, luonas’ aina
    Olet aarre, jonka kerran, melkein kadotin
       “Voinko antaa, kaiken sen
       rakkauden, mitä jäljellä mus’ on
       Voinko antaa, kaiken sen
       rakkauden, mitä jäljellä mussa on”

 

Music: Summer Island (2015)

summerisland

Summer Island refers to the islands of Tammisaari (“Oak Island”, Ekenäs in Swedish) that is a very dear city to me here in the south of Finland. I’ve also lived there for over a year. My favorite and most beautiful forests are in Tammisaari. A few years ago I once swam to a near-by island there in the summer. At the half way I realized my energy was very limited and I didn’t have any water with me.

With the energy I had left in me I made it to the rocky shore of the island and had an experience of “an evolutionary flashback” I felt how a fish came to the solid ground for the first time ever and its fins growing to legs. It felt like seeing and remembering millions of years back in a few seconds.

I studied the island. There is this old symmetrical tree with two big branches in a V-shape. I’ve picked this tree and the island as inspiration for The Blue Forest of Wish to appear in my Springbringer graphic novel. The actual tree is also featured in winter-time on the Soulweaver film, with the moonlight shining in the middle.

In the impromptu summer extreme swim when I left the island I noticed a group of sheep watching me. It felt like a bizarre scene from an art house film because I hadn’t noticed them upon my arrival.

Fortunately I made it back from the isle. And have carried water with me ever since.
