PYRAMIDS ON THE MOON

Dear friends and followers. Firstly I would like to apologise for the recent low activity on this page. The reason is that I’ve been busy working on a new project called “Pyramids On The Moon”. The project has been dubbed “a multi-dimensional autobiography”, and consist of stories about my own life as imagined in three alternative timelines. Coincidentally, all these three versions of myself make music, and also quite coincidentally, one of them makes the music of Mental Overdrive. The output of the other two is of a slightly different form and shape, but hopefully you might still find it interesting if you’ve been following my output over the last three decades. If this sounds like it’s worth checking out, you can take a look at the new project’s Bandcamp page. In addition to the music, the story itself will also be posted in episodes of what I’ve called a “sonic novel”. The first episode is already up on the page. There’s more to come, so follow the page if you’d like to get updated. Thanks for your time! (Illustration by Lasse Marhaug)

Pyramids on the Moon vol. 1

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.

For Christian H

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.
