August/September 2012

October 8, 2012

..was good; spent a few days in La Cala (outside Malaga), spent quite a few days in Oslo, plus did a few live-gigs and studiorecordings.

Here’s a summary as i remember it right now:

*
Did a collaboration with METEK, the track “Lätt Avslapping” can be heard here:

the collaboration continues but i’m a little behind on the work, hoping things will quiet down soon to make me able to catch up..
*
Played a 45 minute set during Numusic. Checked out the recording last night, might be good enough to publish at some point. (Let me know if interested in releasing it for me..)
*
Played in Stavanger Konserthus during the “Husvarming”-thing curated by Cafe Humbug. My recoring of it was so-so, let me know if anybody has a good recording of it. Terje Paulsen also played there, and most of you missed it. Shame.. (I’ll soon youtube a 2-3 minute mobilephonevideo of it.)
*
I recorded/improvised a good 30 minutes in my studio at Consul80, and something like 2 hours together with mr Bjerga. In other words; lots of great material available.
*
Of course, i still run TIBProd: august/september-releases are:
Fisk På Disc – Fisketanker (cd + book) and ODRZ – ODRZ25 In Horas, Live Luserna San Giovanni (CD).
Both available from Looop, who is back online and better than ever before!
TIBProd. has also put up some older releases on Spotify and Wimp and such, go search for Staplerfahrer, Andrè Hardang Borgen and Terje Paulsen.
*
Fisk på Disc celebrated their release with their first ever gig, at Sound Of Mu on the 26th of September. This night also saw at test-version of Iversens Drone-Lounge being presented. I also had a set with Martin Powell on this night, though it was sort of highjacked by Fisk På Disc and turned into a Iversen/Fisk På Disc-session. Recording of this sounded good and is available for anyone interested in releasing.. I have some mobilephoneshot video of Fisk På Disc, will upload it somewhere soon. And while on Fisk På Disc: all their material is now available on WIMP, including 5 Iversen-remixes.
*
Sindre: did I notice a Bjerga/Iversen-release somewhere, possibly a cassette?
*
Also: i played a set at Cafe Humbug when SUTT played there. SUTT is Sofie Trolde and Utku Tavil. I played a set there on Zan Hoffmans night as well but come to think of it; that was probably in July.
*
Non-Me notice: remember to check out the Remix-thing going on over at TIBProd. Italy: http://www.tibprod.com/italy/remixcontests.htm
*
*Coming up: Drone-Lounge, Digna Town, Maurizio Bianchi, Paulsen/Garcia and a whole lot of nothing.

here’s Digna Town, music by me, video by Tzesne:
