Man From Deep River
“Like another wall of jungle trees Man From Deep River leaves us both stunned and disoriented. It is an environment of high tension but also with moments of temporary insanity and auditory hallucinations. Based on a found tape from 1975, which served as guidance for the compositions\"
Man From Deep River opens up a new development in their sound. Melodic passages with sweeping electronics and analogue synthesizers mixed with field recordings and disturbed voices creating a multifaceted piece.
The Swedish born BJ Nilsen defines his work as \"focused upon the sound of nature and its effects on humans, and the perception of time and space as experienced through sound.\" He has numerous recordings on Touch and has collaborated with the likes of Chris Watson, Christian Fennesz, and Z\'ev. The Icelandic citizens Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson and Helgi Thorsson are Stilluppsteypa, whose electronic abstractions engage absurd theatrics that mar the pristine surface of minimalism.
