Hello, I'm Antero Jokinen. Project Oblivion is my personal music project in which I compose, record, mix and produce everything by myself.
This is really the result of my musical upbringing and background. I was born in Tampere in 1993. At the age of seven my parents made me take piano lessons. I kept going to the lessons for the next seven, almost eight years. I was 13 when I got my guitar, soon after guitar lessons were added to my piano practice, those lasted for three years.
Though I don't take lessons anymore I practice (more or less) almost everyday. I'm very driven and eager to develop my skills. I bought an electric drum kit in few years back, in the beginning of 2011. I'm not very good at those but it's a nice little hobby if nothing else.
I started to write and compose my own songs back in 2007 when I got this great software called Guitar Pro. I recorded my compositions with guitar and free software on the Guitar Pro's midi files. I didn't have any professional recording equipment that I have today.
While Project Oblivion is a project of mine and mine alone, I'm also involved in another band project. I joined Trauma Field, an atmospheric metal band, in the beginning of 2014. It's been a blast -- I very much enjoy working with the others.
Music influences: Beautiful and powerful music usually sticks to my (heart) memory. E.g. Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, Devin Townsend, Arch Enemy, Leverage, Edguy, Two Steps From Hell, Hans Zimmer... You should probably check out my Last.fm if you're interested.
Location: Jyväskylä, Central Finland.
