Finnish multi-instrumentalist and composer, Kepa Lehtinen, is a renowned artist in his homeland, after being involved with the scores and soundtracks of multiple award-winning films and TV shows from Finland. In addition to that work, he has released three EP albums: Playing Theremin (2018), Helsinki In November (2019) and It Is Ok To Be Sad And Dark (2020). The latter EP consists of six tracks of what is considered classical electronic music, mostly because of the use of a Theremin (if you don’t know much about this peculiar instrument, I highly recommend watching this video) in some of the tracks. However, my favorite song from that EP, Simple, is just a straightforward piano piece with an enchanting melody. Sometimes, simplicity is all we need.
You can listen to this beautiful tune below.

A lovely piano piece. I wasn’t familiar with the Theremin, so watched the video you recommended. What a fascinating instrument, and hard to believe it’s been around for so long!
I’m glad that video helped. To be honest, I don’t love how the Theremin sounds but I find the way it works absolutely fascinating! And yes, I also thought it was incredible that it had been around for so long!
