A 16 track minimal/glitch album (49m 52s) — released May 18th 2005 on Sähkö Recordings

Ø is Mika Vainios's longest lasting pseudonym. Vainio is best known as the other half of minimalist electronic group Pan Sonic. The first Ø-album was released back in 1994 on Sähkö Recordings, before Pan Sonic's recording career began. As with Pan Sonic, extremely minimalistic expression is the most distinctive feature in Ø's music. As Ø Vainio has often created more atmospheric and abstract pieces than with Pan Sonic. Kantamoinen is a step into a new direction, from abstract to concrete. It is more romantic than his earlier albums and also more personal. Vainio doesn't want to think of Kantamoinen as a concept album, but some of the tracks are inspired by Vainio's childhood memories. The summery photo on the album cover is of Vainio's grandmother's house in Artjärvi, Southern Finland.
