Sauna Porch Recordings Co. is the latest release by Toronto electronic music scene veteran Heiki. It’s a collection of new music entirely composed and recorded on the porch of the rustic sauna cabin his father designed and built in Georgian Bay over 35 years ago.

Heiki made these recordings by creating a live, chilled soundtrack first, then sitting back and absorbing the Georgian Bay lake view and natural surroundings for inspiration. Occasionally he would set up a microphone, record, and then process the natural sounds of the surroundings – the wind, the birds, the rustling of leaves in the wind, people swimming, or motorboats and canoes passing by.

Most of the initial music was quickly recorded as loops in the morning then slowly built up over the course of a day. Songs were then revisited, treated, layered and re-built over the course of a few weeks (or years, in some cases). Washes of sound were created by processing the field recordings then layering them with synthesizer tones and sequences, creating a fusion of natural and synthesized resonances.
