Stroking (The Strings of Terror)

March 24, 2022

A new release for Ukraine

Pay what you want/can.

This release came originally out on a cassette years ago, on the Ukrainian label ~taqueOT. They did beautiful releases, outstanding packaging and artwork. I am not releasing this digitally to support my friends in ukraine. All profits will be sent to Ukraine. I will cover all transaction fees, so any fee that Paypal takes I will add to the donation from my own pocket. So every dime you decide to give will go uncut to a good cause.

The good people at ~taqueOT will be recommending a place to send the money too.

A sneak peek to upcoming releases

November 17, 2021

Good stuff happening on the release front. I have received the artwork for my coming LP – “Komplett Kollaps – a dedication to Jóhann Jóhannsson” A very fitting, beautiful artwork by Icelandic outsider artist Bjarni H. Þórarinson & graphic design by professor Goddur. Bjarni is an artist both Jóhann and myself have always loved. I have always wanted art by him (or a Vísirós as he calles them). So when I approced him with the idea that he would provide artwork for the release and explained what it was about, I was so happy that he wanted to do it. And I was blown away by the artwork he sent. When the release is out I will write more about Bjarni and his artwork and his Vísiakademia theories. Final packaging is being designed now. As the situation in vinyl production is in dire straits it will take a long time to get out on the streets, so expect late next year.

The image is a a small part of the artwork.

Also my coming CD, Sub-Photic Scenario is being mastered. This release is inspired by the bioluminescence of the creatures of the deep dark sea. And at the same time exploring my own period of dark depression, trying to find the light under crushing, paralysing pressure of depression.

Here are some comments from the mastering engineer:

“it is all movement in the very lower end, shaking …but it sounds awesome.”

“so rejoice, as I am NOT going to make it into something standard. Also know that it would kill ANY vinyl, so never attempt to put it out on vinyl”

“I see this as an exercise destined to good listening equipment”

“it could potentially give you a nice headache, but surprisingly I don’t seem to get tired after a few hours”

“Jesus man that second track”

“…Currents Collide. A seriously dangerous one to master if you ask anyone in their right mind!”

Both releases to be releases by EROTOTOX DECODINGS.

A third release, a cassette tape called Inside Out of Chaos will be out on Tapeworm.

I was working on all three releases in the same period, a very difficult, dark time for me. Where I was battling depression and dealing with loss of both a good friend and my father. I had labels willing to release these projects for a while but in my condition I could not finish them. Only after I got professional help and got diagnosed with ADHD earlier this year, there was a heavy cloud that lifted and I could see and understand a lot of things that I had been battling. And I could see that these 3 releases are related, they are describing my state of mind, moving in darkness searching for a some light to guide me out of this paralyzing state I was in. I am relieved that this triology is on it´s way out into the world, finally seeing the light of day after having been just as stuck in the dark as I had been.

Potent Lucid Daydreaming Portal With Profound Astral Attraction

May 6, 2021

3rd new release this week.

I am happy to present the 3rd release on my bandcamp page this week.

This release contains 3 longer works that are all very minimal and probably annoying for a lot of people. It needs active listening to get anything from this, or else it might just become annoying background noise. Be dedicated or be annoyed.

Please join my over at bandcamp for more releases.

Oh, Where have I been? A new digital album out.

May 1, 2021

One more release today. A new album on Bandcamp, on top of the single that got released today. Support your local sound peddler, use Bandcamp. Avoid using services such as Spotify that are not interested in supporting artists.

This is an album I was ready to release on a label a couple of years ago but i decided to shelf it. Not being sure about it at the time. I ended up working on a completely new album for the label (Erototox Decodings in the US) which hopefully will be released this year. After going back to this one, and doing some changes, I do think it´s ready to be released. And here goes.

A new (and first) digital release on Bandcamp

May 1, 2021

I am happy to announce my first release on the Bandcamp platform.

A digital EP containing 2 tracks that i have recently made to accompany video works by Austrian artist Josef Trattner.

Here is one of the videos by Josef Trattner. The work is called Monochrome 100.

Showing 100 beautiful paintings he made, painted with red wine from South Tyrol, North Italy. Different type of redwine for each painting. Each one has it’s own shade of red.

2 new releases by Edition#

December 4, 2020

Edition# releases 2 new releases on Bandcamp.

This release was born as a sound installation in the decommissioned water tower, Brønshøj Vandtårn in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

The 10-speaker installation opened in early 2019 and played for half a year. This is a recording of the installation in the space itself, as the structure’s fantastic acoustics end up playing the music it is fed. Thus becoming the sound source in itself. Mixed to binaural – use headphones.

The release exists as well as a virtual sound art gallery called Edition#3 – spaces, in which the listener is invited to walk into the redefined space, creating his/her own point of view. More information on this and other work by Edition# (Coppier & Magnusson):  edition.is/works/

A live performance by duo Yann Coppier & Runar Magnusson in the decommissioned water tower, Brønshøj Vandtårn in Copenhagen, Denmark. Playing a minimalistic electronic instruments setup while using the tower itself, hitting and scraping various surfaces with contact microphones. 

This was recorded using 5 omnidirectional microphones placed in an inner circle around the duo, within the original 10-speaker circle. 
Mixed to binaural – use headphones.
