We are informed that Erkki Kurenniemi died on May 1, aged 76.

He is thought to be the first Finn to write electronic music.

Quite beautifully.

      Do you *have to* write every time there’s something on modern music?
      And do you think your opinion has any bearing anymore? We get it: you hate modern music and you have a very high opinion of yourself.
      Actually, you’re so predictable that you’ve become a joke. And not a funny one btw.
