The new site has been launched detailing the inner workings of AriTunes, welcome to this more posh, slick an informational on line resource! Stay alert for upcoming news and updates for they are bound to rush in the next few days. Let this work of mine be a dedication to my beloved father and fellow musician and mentor, Pauli Pulkkinen who passed away last summer at the age of 61.
He, as the head of our musical family was my critic and support from the start. Pauli was a talented all-around musician, and had a knack for vast scale of styles and instruments – he sang, played guitar, was one of the DJ’s of the eighties and above all, had an offbeat singing voice along with the truly charismatic performance. Needless to say, he was my biggest support and resource of knowledge and opinion. When hearing a tune he was able to tell whether it sounded good, or unique, or merely something plagiarized in a matter of seconds. When it comes to composing, my father never had the time or the thrill for it. Therefore my work as a composer exceeded his skills, but that made him extremely proud of his son. I’m ever so grateful to him of all the things he taught me, and enjoying of taking things to the next level.
