Looking forward to yet again be responsible for the site ambience at Tromsø’s own Rakettnatt Festival this weekend as part of my Wave∞Form project. I’ll be rigging my modular and some other bits in the new specially designed UFO-style booth (see pic above), and in addition to the usual space-themed soundscapes I’ll be trying out all my new patches based on alternative tuning systems such as Tibetan chrystal bowl “chakra” scales, Fibonacci sequences and Kepler’s planetary orbital cycles. Delighted to be able to do some research on a 7000+ crowd in the middle of my hometown over 2 days.
This is a mix made exclusively from unreleased hardware jams I’ve done over the last year or so at The Shelter Studios, Tromsø, Northern Norway and other selected locations. Recorded onto the 4ms WAV module and then edited and mixed in the DAW that dare not speak its name. Enjoy!
The “Dartrax EP”, featuring Chiwoniso Maraire, Anania Ngoliga and Maulid Mohammed, will be released by Musar Recordings on February 15th. The EP includes remixes by Charlotte Bendiks and Boska, plus DMX Krew.
I have made a new mixtape which is now in circulation both on audio cassette and through my Bandcamp subscriber only service. It’s called “Pyramids on the Moon vol. 1”, and consists of outtakes and previously unreleased material in the form of film soundtracks, theatre music and various sketches that haven’t left my studio before. Go subscribe to my Bandcamp page to get this and other subscriber exclusives, plus my entire Mental Overdrive back catalogue.
Earlier this year we unexpectedly lost our good friend Christian Hollingsæter AKA Le Petit Garçon. Following his tragic passing, Geir Jenssen (Biosphere), took the initiative to compile an album of exclusive works from Christian’s vast network of artist friends for release through his label Biophon, with the main purpose of giving all sales income to Christian’s son Julian. The album is now available from the Biophon bandcamp page above and on CD through selected retailers.
You can now subscribe to my personal artist Bandcamp page. In addition to becoming the coolest person in the world you get instant access to stream and download my entire back catalogue, plus all new releases as they are made available. I will also make some special items such as live recordings and bonus tracks available for subscribers only to show my appreciation of your special support. Click here to get onboard.
