Mannerlaatta is Mika Vainio's soundtrack for a "74-minute Lettrist film made entirely without a camera" by Finnish filmmaker Mika Taanila, it's his 3rd collaboration with Taanila. Possibly Mannerlaatta was conceived somewhere in the wake of Vainio's staggering Kilo and the much sweeter Konstellaatio side as Ì÷, which is roughly where its aesthetics also lie. The 50-minute score breaks down into six sections, each exploring the full frequency spectrum of his patented, greyscale tonal palette, largely swerving a fixed rhythmic meter to occupy a weightless, out-of-reach mid-ground that seduces us headlong into his chasmic designs and best suits the black and white film imagery.åÊ
