Aural Night - Instrumental Keyboard Music. In genre terms this music falls somewhere between Vangelis and Jean-Michel Jarre. Dramatic, analog-sounding, soundtrack-like - with superb melodies and atmospheric textures.
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 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.
His latest composition is the album Voyage.
