Boomkat Product Review:
Andy Votel expands on Finders Keepers’ reissue of the Moomins music by Graeme Miller & Steve Shill with his soundtrack for an exhibition of artwork inspired by Moomins illustrator and author Tove Janssen.
Commissioned by the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival in October 2017, and recorded in situ at the exhibition by Jonathan Edwards and Felt Mistress, Votel’s instrumental soundtrack mixes elements of the original animation soundtrack and related sounds, blended in 13 sections. The nostalgia feels are clear and present, casting almost everyone over the age of 30-odd back to a world of fuzzy felt characters and their adventures in the bucolic Moominvalley. Aces, natch.
