Phonophani is Bergen-based multi-instrumentalist and digital electronics expert Espen Sommer Eide. Originally released in 1998 as a limited edition (500 only) on Biosphere's Biophon label, and a true breath of fresh air at the time, this excellent debut from Phonophani still stands as one of the very best electronica albums ever released in Norway. Well-crafted and full of ideas and original turns, it has a rare timeless quality that makes it sound as fresh today as it did back then. It's difficult to come up with comparisons, but certain aspects of Alog and Boards Of Canada can serve as references. This issue includes three bonus tracks from the same period. As Phonophani Eide has released two albums on Rune Grammofon, Genetic Engineering (2001) and Oak Or Rock (2004), and as one half of Alog the albums Red Shift Swing (1999), Duck-Rabitt (2001) and Miniatures (2005), the last one being awarded the first Norwegian Grammy for the Rune Grammofon label. Espen Sommer Eide: all instruments, programming, sampling.
