    This is the third Staalplaat Soundsystem Yokomono loop LP compiled on the ocassion of the Avanto Festival 2005 in Helsinki. The theme: Helsinki and its environmental sounds. Mika Vainio, one half of Pan Sonic, was commissioned to produce a seven-minute composition. Petri Kuljuntausta from Helsinki was, in turn, asked to provide a composition of an equal length responding to Vainio's piece. The sound material to be used for the compositions, field recordings from the turn of the 1960s and 1970s made at the Hietalahti shipyard in Helsinki, was discovered in the special effects archive of YLE Finnish Broadcasting Company. These sounds have a personal dimension for both composers: Vainio spent part of his childhood living near the dockyard, while Kuljuntausta has used sounds recorded from inside ships' hulls as material for his earlier works. Side two of the record presents Alexei Borisov, Andrey Kiritchenko, Blixa Bargeld, Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg, G.X. Jupitter-Larsen, Jason Forrest, Main, Merzbow, Staalplaat Soundsystem, Un Caddie Renverse Dans l'Herbe and Zbigniew Karkowski with five loops from each featured artist and their own sound environment. Avanto is the co-producer of this unique release.
