"Swamps Up Nostrils seems to appear as a project originating from Trondheim, Norway. It also seems to contain members, one of them perhaps a biped humanoid entity called Arnfinn Killingtveit. One can say it involves electronic elements, or atleast, some sort of sound processing through cirquitry of some sort (maybe found in acomputer). S.U.N. may appear as noise, ambient, d&b, techno, computermusik,microsound, circuitbending, broken electronica, field recordings, or any othermeaningless genre, relative to the observer."
Feedbackphones 2001 - 2004:
These machines are made from old amps and found objects. I play them with either piezo-mics or wires and flesh. I`ve done a collaborative project with composer Timothy Page, and the artists Halldòr Ulfarsson and Bødvar Jacobsson (video-feedback and sampling). Tim wrote a pieze for feedbackphonium, sampler, stringquartet and videofeedback. What goes around mp3

Et hydrolologisk kompromiss 2002 - 2003:
This project started with the idea of making a playground/laboratory for sound in water. It ended with a kinetic soundsculpture/-installation. The machine has it`s certain internal implications, which put it into loops of motion and sound in endless variation I do usually perform together with the machine. The components are found objects.
There are two glasspots with water. One with a speaker, the other with a mic (hydrophones). The water drip from the one with the speaker to the other. The drippingsound is amplified through the speaker. When theres no water left in the upper pot, the hole thing turn, the water go back and feedbacksounds appear.

"This track, originally called tree tops, belongs to that group of melodies I used on the falgueta mini-album. for some reason I don't remember I left it aside, and by the time the mini-album seemed to be complete the track just didn't want to join the rest"

yanrft is the first track we made after 'del 1 al 6' and it determined the way we will later be working while making 'trasck 3 inches'. the song was made out of 2 different takes each of us made separately, and we never thought they could ever work out as 1. so this gave the track a totally new random/unexpected kind of feel.

Mondii w/Hiroshi Iwamoto
This is a collaboration track made in November 2004 between Nao Sugimoto (alias Mondii) and Hiroshi Iwamoto who is an guitarist/composer based in south japan. The concept was to make an imaginary soundtrack for the great painter Claude Monet's masterpiece "Water-Lily". Hiroshi first sent me the basic track using just the acoustic guitar and i finalized it by adding electric guitars and digital treatments. My idea was to use his complete guitar phrases without any destruction (changed the EQ quite a bit though..) and transforming it to a different impression still following the original concept. I really enjoyed the collaboration as it was like painting the ripples of the pond. (mondii)

plus little skits we did and sounds off the radio.
TWISTED KRISTER's debut e.p. Matkalippu Utopiaan (A Ticket To Utopia) contains spoken recital on modern topics backed with electric loops. Also included are three instrumental tracks.
Twisted Krister is, in his own words, a totally un-funky person. So don't be mistaken: though his appreciation for hip hop is great, this is not rap. Instead one can hear the charming rigidity of European electronics and the contemplative intensity of experimental rock in his white man's blues.
Combined with Krister's multi-levelled lyrics this music might find itself somewhere between spoken word and danceable electro-shocks.
These pieces are beginnings of investigations about string sounds. I recorded string vibrations by with my little minidisc and some really simple microphones, adapting them to the strings directly ( notice that I really appriciate simple equipment - it´s cheap and can be replaced by a dime ). After the recording the work begins, transforming, sampling and hundreds of listenings and corrections. Not technically in the first space but "musically " I give a shit for a little unwished noise here or there if it is not obvious being a distortional one disturbing the whole thing. I went out into parks and beaches of smaller lakes to make these recordings.
The string material can be fishing lines or wire, everything with good vibration capacity is welcome. I even went indoor, butit´s more fun to be more roomless because of the feeling perhaps. These pieces are no traditional electroacoustic compositions, they are more like paintings and one should prefer to listen to them like acoustic paintings more than musical pieces.
