Mika Vainio - Lydspor One & Two (Blue TB7 Series) LP
Label: Moog Recordings Library
Mika Vainio visited the Moog Sound-Lab in April 2015. He made one his last known solo studio recordings in the form of two vinyl-sized, side-long pieces entitled Lydspor, Danish for "soundtrack". Mika worked almost exclusively with the lab's Moog Modular System 55. This UK sound-lab instrument is the sole prototype model (containing several golden filters) of Moog's sold-out reverse-engineered edition (only 55 units) recreating the 1970s classic. On completion of his sessions Mika announced: "I could work with this machine for the rest of my life... I would need nothing else." A second Moog session was planned but tragically Mika died in an accident in April 2017, shortly after he had approved the vinyl mastering.
