01. Portals Of Exit

A great document of one  of  the shows from Sindre Bjerga’s  Euro tour  earlier this year. Recorded live @ OCCII, Amsterdam, February 23rd 2012.  Sindre again displays his  unique style,     … voice squabble and clatter, squelch, gurgles, clinks, pops, tapes and rumbles   …….    very nice !!  …….

Released 06/06/2012

Recorded at OCCII in Amsterdam on February 23rd of this year. Bjerga, who seems to be on tour a lot, does it all, noise, improvised music, and being quiet, and here presents something in between all of that, or perhaps a combination of all of that. It opens up with what seems to a straw in a near empty glass sound, or perhaps a contact microphone being eaten by the composer and once that is digested we hear the lo-fi sound of hissy tapes, dictaphones and rumble of a more obscured nature, along with voices from beyond. A very fine piece of electro-acoustic music, not highly refined – in fact: far from it – but a rather personal touch from this great Norwegian guy. Very nice indeed. Catch this guy playing when it he is in your area (check Vital Weekly as he always puts his dates in the announcement section)    (FdW- Vital Weekly 840 )
