1) Pseudonym for Finnish demoscene musican and electronic tracker Jussi-Matti Salmela, who first released his music to the world wide web in 1995 with the track "Dead Lock." From Kankaanpää, Finland, Jussi-Matti began exploring the demoscene at an early age with his first musical program, a 4-channel soundtracker for the Amiga 500 in 1988. The tracks Elwood first debuted were XM modules created using the demogroup Triton's FastTracker 2 MOD file computer tracker program. When support for FT2 was discontinued in 1999, Elwood made the transition to tracking in mp3 format. His last XM module composed with the FT2, was the appropriately-titled "The Only One Left." This track was laster rendered into an mp3 and released with over a dozen others from 2000 to 2003 via his now-defunct mp3.com "Elwood79" profile page. In 2006, he briefly corroborated with a fellow demoscene musician in a project known as LoomMusic, though the duo never officially released any full-length tracks and the project is currently on hold. In recent years, as Elwood, Jussi-Matti composed "The Theme to Vertebra" for a locally-produced film in 2010. Later that year, the piece "Hey Peaches (You Leave Me Speechless)," was made commercially available to iTunes under the alias "Magellanic Milk," with intention of "building from the demoscene" and incorporating "contemporary sounds & styles." In December of 2013, Jussi-Matti returned to demoscene tracking with a brand-new take on the scene and renewed interest in creating music with the track "Spark." All of his solo work as Elwood is available at his web page, elwoodproductions.com, and his original XM MODs (with accompanying upload dates & track descriptions) may be found at the modarchive.org website.
