Lost Weight is the moniker under which Jukka Vallisto releases sound works, made both by himself and with collaborators. On previous releases, pieces have taken the forms of sample-built 4/4 stomps, snaky rhythm excursions in time signatures like 15/8, and abstract contours navigating a space which harshness and smoothness cohabit.

Immune To Jewels collects plunderphonic pieces made between 1995 and 2011, from a miniaturized Finnish lullaby, via several pieces made while working for (and broadcast on) London’s Resonance FM, to a stamping on, or succumbing to, a cornucopia of sins. Sometimes source material has been manipulated a lot, edited, resampled, layered, effected or otherwise treated. In other pieces, large chunks of works have been placed in each others’ majestic presence, bringing about a result that is yet greater than the hum of its already sublime parts.

The pieces hit the sweet spot between experimenting and entertaining. Ever wanted to hear what a collaboration between Pauline Oliveros and Claude Debussy might sound like? Here you go. How about a trinity of Maryanne Amacher, Christina Kubisch and Eliane Radigue? There you are. Fennesz and Mike Patton have played concerts together but haven’t released any studio recordings. Until now, that is. An anti-war dirge by Coil, Throbbing Gristle, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Tom Waits? Enjoy. Speaking of Waits, what if he sang like a black lady? Perhaps you’ll find out.

Vallisto also plays with Helsinki freedom fighters Boris Morgana.
