"Aural Night's Instrumental Voyage"

Artist: Aural Night
Title: Voyage
Genre: Instrumental-Soundtrack-Classical
Label: Independent
Aural Night is an artist from Finland that takes his passion for the great composers and makes something special without the help of a band and typical instruments. The artist uses a Korg Triton with onboard MOSS, M-Audio Audiophile 192 soundcard hooked to his computer to create this engaging instrumental Voyage. The compositions, recorded, mixed, and mastered by the artist, sound as if there was more involved because of the sound quality, nevertheless the results are impressive when you look at the whole picture and how he achieved the desired results.

Aural Night’s intention was to create a soundtrack that could be easily adapted for a movie. I think he succeeds in accomplishing his goal on this album. He listened to his share of Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis prior to jumping into a career of recording, as their influence is peeking around every corner of this CD.

The entire recording is a soundscape that puts you out to sea with a ship on its long Voyage. This music can accompany many forms of media however, the ultimate goal of Aural Night is to get those involved in the movie business to take notice, as they will find great use for his work and in turn enable this creative individual to continue developing this art from with more recordings.

Eleven tracks encompass this CD and what makes it so enjoyable is its variety of textures and tones that sound as if they are peeling off in layers via your ears. This is mood music for me, I do not throw this on to get all pumped up and motivated…this kind of music is for relaxation, contemplation, and can serve you well when you need to focus on one thing and make a decision. In the same instance, it can allow you to become that ship out to sea, so you can float away and forget all your troubles. So for this listener music like this can serve many useful purposes. Of course, it does help to love instrumental music created with the use of the computer. A purist I am not, although I do know what I like. Technology continues to make leaps and bounds every day and now you can create an impressive piece of music on a computer; in this case, Aural Night composes a group of tracks worth a serious look by both listeners and those in the business of multi media productions.

"Aural Night: Voyage"

The electronic music contained in this album by Aural Night has a very personal, innovative style. Some of the pieces possess an innovative cosmic character, others approach Contemporany Instrumental Music, but no known label could be clearly applied to it. The artist displays his wide musical vision, not limited by the fashions of the moment or the imitative patterns of the musical stars. The music is very original and varied, without having to make an intensive use of experimentation with sounds. Aural Night builds melodic themes of a great beauty and mystery. In conclusion, "Voyage" is a wonderful work of electronic music.

Frankly, I adored it! Throughout the album, one is guided through a palpitating history, rich in emotions. Thank you for this beautiful voyage ;) - A fan from Quebec, Canada (20 May 2006)


We received excellent comments from our friends and audience about your music.

I really love the great feeling you transmit in your music, complex, even experimental electronic in parts, but very warm at the same time. You have something wonderful.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Miika Warsell aka Aural Night was born in 1975 in Helsinki, Finland. Early on he had keen interest and talent playing the piano, which he began at the age of six. Soon after he composed his first piece and more have come out sporadically ever since.

When he was 8 he dressed up as Mozart at a school party and when other kids had posters of K.I.S.S. and W.A.S.P. on their bedroom walls, Miika diligently collected pictures of composers – Beethoven, Bach, Sibelius etc. much to the amusement of his ‘normal’ friends. He was so keen on composers that he even learned their birth and death years by heart. His favourite composer, the most talented musicmaker ever, is J.S. Bach.

Miika has studied music theory, music history (at the Open Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland), orchestration, composition (Classical, under Professor Harri Wessman of Sibelius Academy), composition (MIDI) for several years.

Miika has written numerous piano pieces, a full-length suite for a string orchestra, music for an amateur theatre play "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", scored Carlo Collodi's fairy tale "Pinocchio" and composed other miscellaneous music.

In 2006 he released two albums. The first one, Voyage, is an instrumental, soundtrack-like album, portraying a ship's travels across the dangerous seas of life - with ups and downs. You can listen to the album and read more about it at The album was composed, recorded, mixed, and mastered in Espoo, Finland in 2006 by the artist himself. It is now being distributed worldwide and produced by the U.S. distributor Peaceworkmusic Net.

The second album, Avian Dreams, is a solo piano album with peaceful melodies. is the home site for Aural Night's piano music whilst offers more soundtrack-like, keyboard-based music.
