"78 minutes of the finest contemporary electronics from both wellknown and unknown Norwegian artists and composers. All tracks and versions are exclusive for this compilation. Information (duo signed to Tromsø label Beatservice; their first CD, Artifacts, was last year nominated for a Grammy in Norway. Currently working on a new 99 track CD, the main theme being the importance of chance), Phonophani (Espen Sommer Eide from Alog; this is his first recorded output since his quite brilliant debut for the Biophon label a couple of years ago), Düplo (something as old fashioned as a band; improvised electronics, analogue synths, treatments), A Threatened Logical Unit (according to himself, "skewed" is his final try to bridge elements from the Detroit scene and his own, more abstract electroacoustic universe. Oivind Idsø is his name), Arne Nordheim (taken from an outdoor installation where a collection of randomly selected soundscapes continuously change according to the weather conditions, meaning that this selection is totally unique and will never be repeated in the exact same way), Monolight (first sign of life since the selftitled debut 5 years ago), Deathprod (outtake from the Nordheim Transformed session), Plirk (improvised live recording from art collective type of project, the main man being Morten Skogly), Supersilent (selection from live improvisation set to a screening of the classic silent movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in Oslo last autumn), Furuholmen/Bjerkestrand (from A-ha and composer Ketil Bjerkestrand with slightly different mix from track off hermetic on Rune Grammofon), Alog ('we did a really good recording, you know, high quality, analog-digital-analog, noise and hiss. We have all the warm sound, all the really organic quality of sound: percussion instrument, piano, machinery, little old, but working well. the other: the voice, or wind instruments, field-recordings -- poor technology, clear crystal nature of sound. and so say all of us'), Marhaug/Rishaug (the longtime electronic/noise master behind the Jazzassin label), Biosphere/Deathprod (live recording from their sold out church concert in Oslo last year)." Beautiful digipak cover and the finest in digital soundform. An excellent introduction to the label
