New track available through Bandcamp now. The video was shot in Tromsø on the 25th and 26th of March 2020, and features the closed-down city.

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.
My new album “Epilogue” is out today. Check it out in the player above and buy full quality files through Bandcamp or other digital download stores. Double vinyl coming soon.
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 get the filmscore for Paper Films’ documentary “Northern Disco Lights” through my Bandcamp page. Includes bonus track. Check it out in the player above.
I’m looking forward to head over to Bergen tomorrow for a Ploink evening marking the release of my new album “Hardware”, which will hit the shops on March 6th. I’ll be doing a live set, and DJ’s for the night is Thomas Urv and U-Teq.
I’m happy to announce that my next Mental Overdrive album, “Hardware”, will be released by Bergen’s own PLOINK on March 6th. The material goes pretty much back to basics, with live techno jams recorded straight down to tape and then edited slightly before sent off to mastering at D&M. More info to come soon.
Over the years I have written a lot of music that falls outside of my usual arena of club-friendly (and sometimes slightly un-friendly) beats. Up until recently this has mainly been in connection with film scoring or composing for art shows and sound installations, but I feel I’m now ready to release some of my more experimental material in a more traditional way. I’m therefore starting a new series of releases under a different artist name – to avoid any confusion. The first transmission by this new project is called “Waveform01”, and is a single track album with a running time of 53mins 17secs. You can stream the whole album from this new Bandcamp page , and if you like what you hear and want to purchase it, you may do so for a minimum of 5 Euro. If you want to pay more, that’s also OK. It only means I will be able to keep expanding my modular setup, and hopefully create new and interesting sounds for your future enjoyment. If you want to get in touch to book a live gig with WAVE∞FORM, you can hit me up through one of my social media channels (mentaloverdrive @ Instagram, Twitter or Facebook). If you’re rather looking for more club-friendly beats, you probably want to book Mental Overdrive instead. I hope you enjoy the new sounds.
