Another Norwegian Invasion!

Sindre Bjerga (Norway)
Sindre Bjerga has been wiretapping the secret frequencies of ghostly drones for years now. Though a steady flow of releases on numerous labels around the world he has been channeling the spectral transmissions from the grey void...

Expect psychedelic drones that sometimes collide with snippets of found sounds from half-demagnetized tapes and concrete sounds from wrecked kitchen utensils.


Nils Rostad (Norway)
Nils Rostad has been playing improvised guitar for years (in addition to being a painter). His auto didactic approach can be very intense and private, owing more to American primitives like Dredd Foole, Loren Connors, or Christina Carter, than to the European avant-garde or free jazz. Using both timbre, attack, and volume as effects (in additon to effect pedals) his sound comes across as highly personal and sparse. He has also been playing with Sindre Bjerga under the name Magnetic North Duo.


James Edmonds (UK)
Through improvising with a ever-changing archive of personal materials he is discovering a strange musical language where subtle relationships between human hand and recorded medium, intention and non-intention, harmony and discord, can be picked up and explored.

The recent re-introduction of unrecorded materials/instruments such as the organ, have brought about new focus and tension between raw and processed sounds as well as giving opportunity for sudden, unexpected shifts in musical direction and in the perceptions of the listener.
