Prog Reviewer
4 stars Two Norwegian artists remodeling a third.

The third in question is Arne Nordheim and both parties, Geir Jenssen (BIOSPHERE) and Helge Sten (DEATHPROD), render their reinterpretations to Nordheim's material "Electric". (originally recorded in late 60s/early 70s). The artists take turns in presenting us with their reinterpretations of this work.

The original score is respected to the point of recognition, but these "transformations" are in themselves full of sonic proposals that offer new directions in the whole scope of the original "Electric" music.

So we get an almost one and one understanding of the original project. And their respective languages serve the purpose of encompassing both approaches without direct collaborations as far as the scarce liner notes depict.

Music wise, both musicians are distinguishable between each other, so as each track goes by, it refreshes the concept from scratch, without losing thread of this as a single effort project.

Ambiental, experimental, contemporary and daringly attractive. A perfect introduction to three Norwegian electronic musicians at their best.

****4.5 PA stars! Slow and mesmerizing!
