ORIGAMI GALAKTIKA (NO)

Fotografi: Espen Winther.

In 1994 Benny Braaten, aka b9, from Oslo Norway was introduced to Tore Honoré Boe, founder of the Origami Republika collective. Both of them releasing tapes in limited handmade editions at that time, and being into "strange" music, they got along well and ended up playing their first concert together that very same night. This performance lead to 4 years of Origami Arktika, playing 40 shows in venues all over Europe and releasing around 15 audio works, including the acclaimed Sondring and Faqul CDs.
 Benny Braaten also started his own explorations of sound the same year as Origami Galaktika and around Christmas 1994 he started the recording of what was to become Origami Galaktikas first LP "Stjernevandring". Two years later the next one, a double LP "Eesti Lilled Silmad Süda" was released and more releases has followed along side tours in Europe, USA and Canada.
Origami Galaktika live uses mainly organic sounds. Field recordings, acoustic instruments, contact-mics and various things that create sound processed through samplers and effects forms a multilayered, ambient soundworld.

Anla has toured extensively in Japan, Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and even near the North Pole. His music is usually based on prepared sounds, tape manipulations, processing of field recordings, live electronics, objects, cymbals, synthesizers and computer tools. But Anla is also playing traditional instruments and strange and unusual self-built instruments to make noisy, experimental sound performances.

PRAYING FOR OBLIVION (US/D)

Industrial-Noise/Power-Electronics project Praying For Oblivion emerged from Buffalo,N.Y. in 1995.
Founded by Andrew Seal, Praying For Oblivion has taken on many different forms as a live performance and recording unit.
Live actions focus on darker ritual elements and loops, as well as vocals, augmented occasionally by synthesizers and scrap metals.
Since its beginning Praying For Oblivion has dispersed it's sound over a variety of labels in the United States and Europe on vinyl, CD, cassette, and CD-R.

STEFKOVIC VAN INTERESSE

Fotografi: Nicolas Rossi.

Stefkovic van Interesse started making music in 2007. Initially he experimented in the field of noise but lately he has found a new element to transform his sound - field recordings. Over the past year he has built up a colorful collection of field recordings from his travels and day to day life which he combines into carefully constructed loops and soundscapes. Rich textures are unfolding, stretching beyond there place of origin, thus creating a new space.
The sonic experience translates well into images and Stefkovic van Interesse is working with visual artist Maxi Schramm to visualize his sound worlds.


"Give the world a listen and you’ll discover natural rhythms. I take those and put them into an unexpected context."
