Chilled Out Noodling: Ojoon EP

I'm like a modern Rick Wakeman, me

"Enjoy a relaxing moment on a break from work, or set the mood for a chill party," suggest the makers of Ojoon EP. Don't mind if I do! With clocking-off time nearing, I've had a lovely few minutes noodling away on the "visual instrument", watching colours and shapes grow and twist as I tap out rhythms and futz with the pitch. Ojoon was released for free this week by creator Jukio Kallio, who you might better know for working on the Luftrausers and Nuclear Throne soundtracks under his stage name of Kozilek. It's free, and it's a balmy Thursday evening, so come chill.

Ojoon is a keyboard with some pretty things to look at, really, but what a lovely one! It's also an EP, as its three scenes have background music from a different musician--Daniel Hagström, Rudolf Westerholm, and Kozilek himself--that quietly support even the wildest noodling. You can tap out notes, boom bass notes, twiddle pitch, and also 'change sides' for a different take on each song.

My favourite's probably the spinning pentagons and hexagons that open portals to a spotty dimension. Soothing. It almost makes me feel musically competent, too.

Ojoon EP's a free download for Windows and Mac from itch.io. I should note that Kozilek once played a set at an event I helped organise but I don't think we even spoke and, er, it's free, innit?
